Celebration of the Word

Thu., January 16, 2020 7:30pm ·


“In the life of individuals and of communities, celebrations of the word of God are an effective way to nurture their spirit and spiritual life, to foster a more intense love of God’s word, and to ensure richer results from celebrations of the eucharist and the other sacraments.” (Ceremonial of Bishops, no. 222)

Join us Thursday evenings at 7:30pm in the East Conference Room for a very simple liturgy: readings, a homily by Fr. John Benson, and prayers. All are welcome to come – no sign-ups or materials needed. Just come and listen.

The Word of God is not just a nice story about something that happened a long time ago – it is our story. It is a living Word. It touches our lives, and we find ourselves within it.We gather on Thursday evenings
