January 21 – 22 – Soles for Souls Collection - Gathering Space
Shoes collected by Soles4Souls make a tremendous difference in the lives of their recipients. 50% of everything donated is distributed in the US. Many shoes are sent to third world countries to support partners in their micro-enterprise programs. Through these efforts, women are able to feed, shelter and clothe their children. In many countries, children are not allowed to attend school without a pair of shoes. Without education, the cycle of poverty continues. Approximately 1 million people die each year from lack of proper foot wear. 400 million children do not own a single pair of shoes and that is approximately what Americans place in the landfill each year. This is all preventable. Will you help by donating new and gently worn shoes to the Soles4Souls Shoe Drive the weekend of January 21-22?
January 23, & 30 – 7:00 p.m. – Mass Class with Fr. Chris
One of the great undiscovered treasures in our Catholic Church is Adult Education. The Bishops have spoken at length about how learning, and especially learning about our faith is a lifelong endeavor. The Catholic Church has such a richness of tradition, teaching, and culture which many are not fully aware of. This tradition is also a tremendous benefit to our growth in faith. Inspiration is a key element of proper education.
Fr. Chris will be teaching a class entitled, "The History and Theology of the Eucharist", it is an opportunity to learn more about the Mass which we celebrate each and every day in our church. The Mass is a time of comfort and familiarity for many. It also challenges us with the words of Scripture, while assisting us in our prayer. Culminating in the reception of the Eucharist, which gives us strength for our daily journeying. But, how much do we really know about the Mass and the liturgical celebration of the Church?
The class will begin on Monday, January 9 at 7:00 pm, and continue on January 23 and January 30. We will skip January 16, as this is Martin Luther King Day. Please join us!
