From the Pastor's Desk - January 5, 2012

 

Dear Parishioners,
Mark your calendars now for a couple of adult enrichment opportunities that will take place this winter and spring.  
First, our Monday-evening Bible Study will start up again on February 6 and run until April 30. We will be studying the Book of Psalms.  By January 22, please sign up on the sheet provided on the table at the northwest corner of the social hall so I know how many study guides will be needed.
Second, during Lent on four Wednesdays (February 22 & 28 and March 7 & 21), after the 6:00 evening Mass, I will provide a four-part series on the Theology of the Body of Pope John Paul II, which you can also sign up for on the sheet on the table at the northwest corner of the social hall by January 22.  I will be utilizing DVDs with presentations by Christopher West that are 30 minutes in length.  Hence, if you come for Mass and stay for the video you can be out in about an hour, though, for whoever is interested there will be time after the video for questions and discussion.  This will be a great opportunity to learn about this beautiful teaching of Pope John Paul II on the beauty of the human person who has been created in the image of God to reflect His self-giving love, especially in relation to the vocation of marriage. While Pope John Paul teaches about marriage in his Theology of the Body, it is something valuable even for persons who are not married in understanding who we have been created to be as human persons.
There is no cost for either one of these enrichment opportunities. Remember that Christ calls us to continually grow in the knowledge of our faith, so I hope and pray that many adults will seize these opportunities for their faith enrichment.
Have a wonderful and grace-filled week.
God bless,  Fr. Gutowski
