Come join us as we journey through Lent towards our Easter celebrations!
"As Lent is the time for greater love, listen to Jesus' thirst...He knows your weakness. He wants only your love, wants only the chance to love you."
– Blessed Teresa of Calcutta
Join us for Prayer, our Lenten Retreat, Brown Bag Lunches, Fish Fry Fridays, Seven Churches Bus Trip, Children's Pageant and so much more.
PARISH LENTEN RETREAT
Join us for three nights of reflection, "Crying Out to God When It Hurts: The Psalms as Journey from Grief to Gratitude", by Dr. John Bergsma. Dr. Bergsma is a Professor of Theology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville. A former Protestant pastor, Dr. Bergsma entered the Catholic Church in 2001 while getting his Ph.D. in Bible from the University of Notre Dame. A close collaborator of Dr. Scott Hahn, Bergsma speaks regularly on Catholic Radio and at conferences and parishes nationally and internationally. He has authored seven books on Scripture and the Catholic faith, including Bible Basics for Catholics (Ave Maria Press), Stunned by Scripture: How the Bible Made Me Catholic (Our Sunday Visitor), and A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: Old Testament (with Brant Pitre; Ignatius Press). Dr. Bergsma's talks and studies are available on CD and mp3 from catholicproductions.com. He and his wife Dawn reside with their eight children in Steubenville, Ohio.
We are offering an adult disciple formation series called Symbolon. We will gather to learn through short DVD presentations, live exhortations, question-and-answer interactions and small-group discussions. The series will run for six continuous weeks on Thursdays, immediately following the noon Mass, in Gathering Room 2. If you want to see more about the material we'll cover, go to www.symbolon.org. Below are the dates and topics that will be covered.
