PARISH MISSION

Spirit of Christ will host its annual Fall Parish Mission from Nov. 12-14 here at the Church.  We are very excited to have Fr. Andrew Wisdom as our Mission presenter.  Fr. Wisdom currently serves as the Promoter of Vocations for the Order of St. Dominic.  He is presently based here in Denver at St. Dominic's Parish.  Fr. Wisdom is the author of several books, including his current book, "Advent and Christmas Wisdom from St. Thomas Aquinas".

Our parish mission will continue our themes of discipleship which have been explored these past several months.  Father's mission is entitled, "Called to a Personal Mission:  God Says, 'I Want You!'  Since the Second Vatican Council, we have heard of our Universal Call to Holiness.  Pope St. John Paul spoke of this often, and taught us that this was the true call of the laity.  Each of us have a vocation from God, but we need help in understanding what our particular call entails, and how we answer that call.  Fr. Wisdom will help us in this endeavor.

The Mission will be held Monday through Wednesday, Nov. 12-14.  There will be one talk given each day, at two different times.  The first talk will be held at 10:00am (after Daily Mass).  The second talk-time will be 7:00pm.  This gives our folks several options each day.  All talks will be held in the church proper.  We encourage you to take advantage of this great opportunity.  Parish Mission time is always an exciting time for any parish, as we gain new insights into our faith and our Father.  Please plan on attending with your family, and don't hesitate to invite your friends (Catholic and non-Catholic as well).


SPIRIT NIGHT

At the conclusion of our Parish Mission, we will have our 2nd annual Spirit Night.  Co-ordinated by our Director of Music, Myles Ogea, Spirit Night provides a worthy celebration of our community as we conclude our Mission.  It will involve many of our faithful parish musicians, offering there own interpretation of classic songs of faith and spirit.  Spirit Night will be held on Saturday, Nov. 17 beginning at 7:00pm in the church. Bring your friends and family (Catholic and non-Catholic) for what should prove a fun and inspiring evening.

Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a week of fun filled interactive mornings where children learn bible stories and truths.  Each daily theme focuses on a bible story that is taught through songs, games, video, crafts, play and a snack.  VBS is held in June with registration in April.  Contact Eyda at: vacationbibleschool@spiritofchrist.org
