Thought about People of Faith sessions
and never attended???
Come give this one a try on us! The program this year has centered on Acting with Justice. The focus of the May 15th session
will be: Caring for God’s Creation. Come listen to our guest
lecturer, Bruce Weilicki, discuss this topic and its relationship
to our climate. Promises to fascinating and challenging. We
meet after the 10 am Mass and again after the 4 pm Mass..
Come try a session!
Thank You! It takes many hands to prepare for our People of
Faith gatherings, thank you to all who helped in some way this
year with home kit preparation, program planning, set up, serving meals and clean up at the end of the sessions! A special
thanks to Jessica Dame and the Nursery volunteers and the PreK/K team: Jessica Achorn, Mary Litzinger, Margaret Goggins
and Cheri Benkowski!
Monthly Justice Challenge for May
In today’s Gospel Jesus explains that he has come to us so that
we may have life and have life more abundantly. The abundance of life that God has given to us in Christ can be seen
throughout creation with all the beauty, uniqueness, and variety
of plant and animal life. Caring for God’s Creation is the theme
of Catholic Social Teaching for this month’s People of Faith
session. Your challenge this week is to think of how you can
care for God’s creation as a way of thanking God for the sacrifice that Jesus made out of love for us. What can you do to take
care of our earth? What can you do to ensure that you leave the
earth a little bit greener for future generations?
