The theme of the mission revolves around the question … “Can you describe what happens in those events in your life in which you experience the presence of God?”
Fr. John Collins helps people recognize the importance of developing their own “faith story” by appealing to their experience, both negative (“Why doesn’t prayer work?”) and positive (In yearning to do good, we are uncovering the grace of God within). The three talks are provocatively titled: Monday: What Good is God? Tuesday: Why Prayers Don’t Work and Wednesday: Ten Kinds of People We Don’t Have To Love.
The Mission begins on Monday, February 8 at 9:00am and repeating at 7:00pm and continues each morning/evening through Wednesday, February 10. All are welcome! For more information, please contact the Parish office at 855-9069.
