St. Anthony Mass & Novena 2016

St. Anthony Mass and Novena
Tuesdays at 6:00 p.m.
March 15 – June 7, 2016
Mass in church followed by prayers to the Saint
 
We celebrate the thirteen Tuesdays, a novena in honor of St. Anthony of Padua, the Miracle Worker.
 
A novena is a specific time set aside on a regular basis to focus in prayer on specific intentions. Saint Anthony is our “partner” in prayer and a channel for God’s wonders to bring about change and healing.

LAUDATO SI

The Social Justice Commission and the Library Committee are excited to collaborate on a Book Study and Reflection Group on Pope Francis’ Encyclical
LAUDATO SI
 It is written in a very accessible style. It does not read like an academic tome as did many encyclicals of the past. In this book, our Holy Father asks us to reflect upon the meaning of existence and its values that are the basis of social life: What is the purpose of our life in this world?  Why are we here? What is the goal of our work and all our efforts? What need does the earth have of us?
 “…it is no longer enough, then, simply to state that we should be concerned for future generations.”

Come and join this discussion group and let’s have an open and honest dialogue…

Mark your calendars:  7 Wednesdays/6 Chapters – 6:30 to 7:30 pm • St. Matthew Room
Session 1: April 20
Session 2: April 27
Session 3: May 4
Session 4: May 11
Session 5: May 18
Session 6: May 25
Session 7: June 1 

You can attend one, some or all!
Please call the Parish Office at 330-758-2325 to RSVP and to reserve a book!
