Otherness - Fall Retreat 2014

Because we live in a complex world, it is often all too easy to be suspicious of the otherness around us. Those with different beliefs, skin color, zip codes, ethnicity, income, etc.  become “the other.”  So much of our perception has been fed to us.  On this retreat, Brother Bob will help us mature in how we view and understand otherness within the context of our core faith beliefs and values.

Led by Retreat Master,  Br. Robert Baxter, OFM

Catholic Social Teaching: Where the Table (Eucharist) meets the Road!

Presenter:  Deacon Lucio Caruso

This series will explore the What, Why, Where, and How of our Catholic Social teaching: its roots in Scripture, the Teaching of Jesus, and in the Tradition of the Catholic Church; its core principles and their application to the real world. We’ll examine how the Church acts on this teaching through its ministries and organizations, locally and world wide.  We will learn more about the work of our Archdiocesan Catholic Charities and how parishes like ours can partner with its outreach and works of charity and justice.  We will look at some models for how a parish can best organize its social outreach work, to maximize participation of all its members…

Offered Tuesdays , November 18, 25, and December 2 at 7 pm.  Registration Deadline is November 11.    Call 582-2971.
