YOUR VOLUNTEER HOURS!
Spirit of Christ Catholic Community will celebrate our 40th Anniversary in July, 2014 – 40 YEARS! In our Stewardship DVD this year, we talked about your commitment to time, talent and treasure. This was a founding charism of our parish and WE OWN OUR LEGACY. Spirit of Christ parishioners are the best of the best volunteers!
We want to know how many hours a month you volunteer and what you do for whom in those hours. We hope to hear your stories. We have set up a Wiki Account for you to send your information. On the front page of the web site we will have a “thermometer”, where we will tally the information each month and move the gauge up each week. In July we will show how many hours we have LIVED THE GOSPEL – making a difference in others’ lives each and every day. The wiki address is:
Every Sat., 9 a.m. - Respect for Life Rosary
Join us each Saturday in the Chapel at 9 a.m. to pray the rosary. If you have questions please contact email@example.com for more info.

Thurs., Sept. 25, 7 p.m. - Diann Kissell Presentation
Diann Kissell is an out-going, involved, long-time parishioner of Spirit of Christ. Her compelling story is one of survival from severe abuse and trauma as well as her subsequent healing journey culminating in the peaceful, joyful person you know today.
Diann’s recently published memoir, A Turquoise Life, written by Kathy Bird, details her eight-year incestuous relationship with her father, and his murders of his pregnant wife and three of his ten children. On Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 7:00 pm in the Spirit Center, she will share her remarkable story of healing and hope after trauma. Both Diann and Kathy will stay for questions and book signings after the event. She looks forward to sharing her story about the resiliency of the human spirit and the importance of hope.
Given the content of this presentation, this is an adult-only event.
