Monday-Wednesday, Feb. 25-27, 2019 – Have you ever longed to find inner peace, and peace with the world around you?
Would you like to experience the new depths of God’s love?
Come join Franciscan Father John Anglin on Feb. 25-27 for Holy Family's Parish Mission “Living the Joy of the Gospel” in the Main Church. Each day of the mission has a session after the 8:30 a.m. Mass and at 7 p.m. for approximately one hour.
During this mission, you will be taken on a journey which seeks to awaken a realization of God’s Eternal love. Through this experience of God’s love and power of forgiveness, you will learn to find peace within yourself and the world around you.
(sessions both after 8:30 a.m. Mass and 7 p.m.)
Monday, Feb. 25 – A Loving God: The Cause for our Joy
We will see that once the love of our God touches our hearts, we will have a joy that sustains us even in the most difficult times. We will see as well that we are called to give witness to that joy by the way we live and by sharing that love and joy with others.
Tuesday, Feb. 26 – The Gift of Mercy (Sacrament of Reconciliation offered after the session)
Pope Francis is constantly reminding us that God is merciful beyond our wildest imagination. We will see that this mercy is shown to us through the forgiveness of our sins as well as in the healing of our brokenness and pain. Because we receive God's mercy, we are called to be a merciful people not only by forgiving others, but also in treating those with whom we differ — and those on the margins of life — with mercy.
Wednesday, Feb. 27 – Caring for our Common Home, Mercy for our Brothers and Sisters and for all God's Creatures (Anointing of the Sick offered after the session)
Pope Francis has spoken often about the need to help the poor and about the need to care for creation. Is this just politics, or is it truly a spiritual and theological challenge? Today we will see that the Redemption that Jesus won on the cross was not only forgiveness of our personal sins, but also the grace to overcome and heal the terrible injustices to people and the environment caused by our sin. We are called, by His grace, to do what we can to be healers for a broken world.
