Beginning September 7th, join us at 7:00pm in the Lecture Hall for four Wednesday evenings as Dr. Hendry introduces us the US Bishops’ joint teaching document, Forming Consciences for Faithful Citizenship, which is their official pastoral call and challenge for us to take up our political responsibilities as active Catholics and disciples of Jesus Christ. Participants in this series will learn what the Catholic Church teaches about issues of public policy, the importance of a well-formed conscience, the basic principles of Catholic Social teachings, and a clear summary of the policy positions of the US Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on the crucial political issues facing us in the upcoming November 8th Election. This course will actually help guide Catholics in the exercise of their rights and duties as participants in our democracy; the completion of this four-part series also fulfills 5 hours of catechist formation credits. Bring a copy of the text, a notebook and a friend. Open to any parishioner! There is no charge for this Wednesday evening series. You may purchase a copy of the official text the first night of the course, or download a free copy in English or en Español at: http://www.usccb.org/issues-and-action/faithful-citizenship/index.cfm

Beginning September 12th, join us at 7:00pm in the Parish Hall as we study the second half of Luke’s gospel (chapters 13-24) in this Jubilee Year of Mercy which also follows the current Liturgical cycle of Year C Gospel readings from Luke. This gospel paints a portrait of a loving Jesus who is the epitome of mercy and deep compassion toward all. In this second half of Luke, we will explore Parables like the Prodigal Son, the Barren Fig Tree, the Lost Sheep, the Rich Man and Lazarus, Zacchaeus the Tax Collector, etc. We also dive into the merciful love of God for the poor and destitute, the last words of Jesus from the Cross, and his Resurrection appearance along the Road to Emmaus. Dr. Hendry will help us uncover the personalities, interactions, conflicts, symbols and the deeper meanings behind this gospel text - which is known for its particular focus on relationships and joy. No prior knowledge necessary. You did not have to complete the first half to join this second half. Bring a bible, notebook and a friend. Open to anyone!
