"Four Phrases that will Change your Life"
presented by Fr. Joshua Wagner
Sunday, March 18 at 7:00 p.m.
Monday, March 19 at 7:00 p.m.
Father Joshua Wagner will preach “Four Phrases That Will Change Your Life”, a powerful message which demonstrates how the Mass is not “just another nice thing we do on Sunday mornings, but teaches us how to be authentic human beings.” Father Wagner’s message will help people to use the example of Jesus, who repaired our relationship with the Heavenly Father with his sacrifice on the cross, and repair the relationships within our everyday lives- whether they are with God, with someone in our lives, and even within ourselves. “The Four Phrases” Mission involves lively and captivating story telling, humor, and profound insight from the scriptures, the liturgy, and the Living Tradition of the Church. This Mission is appropriate for all ages, and has been enjoyed by the young and the “experienced” alike!
