Six Short Stories of Flannery O’Connor

Presenter: Ms. Kathleen Lyons

Parishioner Kathleen Lyons, the former Director of the Center for Interfaith Relations, and Bellarmine University professor, is offering a six-part series exploring six short stories of Flannery O’Connor.  “Flannery O’Conner described her fiction as stories about Original Sin. In this condition, her characters,often bizarre, make choices based on pride or selfishness. These choices prove to be disastrous, often hilariously so, but they also lead to a moment of grace. This is also a moment of truth, or a realization of  redemption through the grace of the Cross.”

This festival  honors St. Lorenzo de Ruiz, the first martyr of the Philippines.  A delicious Filipino dinner will be offered immediately after the 5:30 pm Mass on September 28.  The cost is $8; no reservations required.  Total proceeds go to the fund established several years ago for students who need financial aid to attend a Catholic school.  Several of our parishioners have benefited from it.  Any donation above the $8 charge for the dinner is tax deductible and greatly appreciated.  Invite your family and friends to celebrate this wonderful event so generously prepared by the Filipino community.
