Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer
January 20, 2019 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Our Lady of Mercy Church
On Jan. 6, we will begin an 8-week series on prayer. This study will use video presentation and guided discussion. It will be held in the Conference Room from 9:45-10:45 Sunday mornings (between the Masses). If you have ever wondered how to recognize the voice of God in prayer, struggled with distractions, wished you could pray with more attention or simply wished you knew how to get started with regular prayer, this study is for you. Both those new to a regular prayer life and those who have been faithful to prayer for years will find this study helpful. The study is free and there is no need to register or to commit to every week. The study is free, but a $15 workbook is available for anyone who wants one. If you want a workbook, contact Irene Lucas @ 899-6132 by Dec. 15 so she can order it.
January 20, 2019 9:45 - 10:45 a.m. Our Lady of Mercy Church
Our next Sunday Morning CAFÉ will be held Jan. 20 from 9:45-10:45. Three years ago, Pope Francis wrote the encyclical On Care For Our Common Home: Laudato Si. What does this papal document call us to do? What does it mean to live out Laudato Si? What does our faith say about our relationship to the created world? Celebrate Laudato Si with Secular Franciscans Mary Nelson, OFS and Chris Zurawski, OFS animators with the Global Catholic Climate Movement as we explore some of these ways with short videos, discussion and prayer.
