ALL ARE WELCOME AT ANY OR ALL SESSIONS!
Catechesis Continues - Come and Listen! Workers in the vineyard from the Neocatechuminal Way are leading us in reflective prayer, Sacred Scripture and the gift of witnessing the faith. We invite you all to join in the unique opportunity of prayer and opportunity to deepen our spiritual life. We also ask you to invite others to join us. Maybe you have a friend or relative that is interested in hearing more about Jesus. Maybe you know someone who has been away for a while. Maybe you know someone who has a past hurt or is alienated form the Church because of the fault or example of a priest or religious. Whatever the reason let us invite and welcome them home to Christ and His Church.
October 26th, 30th Sunday in Ordinary Time . . . Blessed Pope Paul VI Beatified on October 19, 2014 . . . “GIOVANNI BATTISTA MONTINI was born at Concesio (Brescia) on 26 September 1897. He studied under the Jesuits and attended the Oratory of Saint Philip Neri in Brescia. He was ordained to the priesthood on 29 May 1920. He completed degrees in philosophy and civil law in Rome, and in canon law in Milan. . . . On 21 June 1963 he was elected pope and took the name of Paul VI. Amid numerous challenges, he brought to successful conclusion three periods of the Council, encouraging the Church to be open to the modern world while respecting her tradition, always seeking communion among the Council Fathers . . . He suffered greatly because of the succession of crises that affected the Church in those years, but he found great solace in his courageous transmission of the faith, securing the doctrinal foundations of the Church in a period of ideological upheaval (The Year of Faith: 1967-1968 and the "Credo of the People of God": 1968). He showed a marked capacity for mediation in every field. He was prudent in his decisions, tenacious in affirming principles, and understanding of human weakness. . . ." to read full message . . .
