Adult Education, October 2014: The Vision of Pope Frances for the Church
On Nov. 26, 2013, Pope Francis issued an Apostolic Exhortation entitled Evangelii Gaudium or “The Joy of the Gospel.” This document is written in the plain, everyday language for which the pope has become famous. On the Sundays of October, Father Edmund Hussey will discuss the main themes of this Exhortation that spells out Pope Francis’ vision for the Church in our day. These programs will be between the Masses on Sunday mornings and will begin at 9:30. See the October calendar for topics.
October 10 at 7 p.m.

Did you know that we collect non-perishable food for the poor on the third weekend of every month? Place donations by the baskets near the three entrances. Our St. Vincent de Paul Society delivers the food to a local food pantry. Thank you for remembering that hunger is a year-round problem.
