Workshop I: Saturday, May 12, 2018
Workshop II: Saturday, June 2, 2018
9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Christ Our Light Parish Center
Responsibilities and demanding life circumstances pull us through our fast-paced days. Stress, anxiety, and sensory overload, internal noise of continual thoughts, worries, and distractions take away our energy. We long to stay centered in Christ and connect with God. There is a way to be in the world but not be consumed by it. Whether you already have a contemplative prayer practice or are just beginning these Centering Prayer Workshops are for you. Centering Prayer is a deeply profound spiritual discipline, yet freeing in its simplicity.
NOTE: Children must attend Elementary Faith Formation class for one year prior to preparing to celebrate 1st Reconciliation and 1st Eucharist. Families are encouraged to begin their child’s faith formation in first grade.
For- high school seniors and college aged students. Join us for a service, language, immersion opportunity.
This summer, Fr Tom and I will accompany our teens/families to Jamaica. Trusting that you will join us on our third missionary journey. We will spend 5 days with our young leaders in service while being molded in cultural immersion, Catholic identity and spirituality. Mustard Seed is a respectable organization and is well attended by many of our Catholic universities/ parishes and high schools. What a remarkable statement of faith.
"Many of the residents will never get a chance to see the world. With your help, we will bring a piece of the world to them." MSC

This is a new group being formed and led by Fr. Tom Newton. It is about each man supporting one another to become a transformed man of God; a better person, husband, father, partner, son, brother, and friend. It is about growing up – spiritually, emotionally and socially. The sessions will last 1 ½ hours and will be conducted in the format of a Council Circle (more on Council Circles will follow in another bulletin). Open to All men age 18 and over. All races, creeds, sexual orientations, and levels of church participation are invited. The next session will be held on Saturday, May 26 from 6:00 AM until 8:00 AM.
