Theater ‘N’ Theology- June 2

We marvel at how God’s mercy, presence, and grace breaks in to the lives of ordinary people in good times and in crisis. That is what we see in the films that we view and discuss at our parish TNT (Theater ‘N’ Theology). Our next TNT takes place on Friday, June 2, beginning promptly at 7:00 p.m. All are welcome to come to our Incarnation Movie Theater (the “Stone Chapel”) with comfortable seating and large projection. After the movie (the “Theology” part), we discuss the film’s relevance to our life in Christ and note the action of God’s mercy. Our June feature is the 2016 French film The Innocents. In 1945 Poland, a young French Red Cross doctor who is sent to assist the survivors of the German camps discovers several nuns in advanced states of pregnancy during a visit to a nearby convent. Rated PG-13. Facilitated by Fr. Gregory. All are welcome. Come watch a great movie with your brothers and sisters in Christ!

No construction experience is necessary, and this is a great way to spend a Saturday living our faith and doing tangible work in the community. We also need people to photograph the event, and provide lunch. Our next build dates are May 20, and July 15. Please check out the sign-up sheets in the Narthex for details and to put your name down!

The New Testament

Sunday, May 7th 10:15 a.m.

The Bible should be the indispensable handbook for any follower of Jesus. As Saint Jerome, one of the four great Doctors of the Western Church said, “Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ.” Do we have a working familiarity with the Bible, especially the New Testament? On Sunday, May 7, between the morning Masses (starting about 10:15am), Father Gregory’s Adult Sunday school topic will be The New Testament in the Parish Activity Center. We will begin going through the entire New Testament, no Gospel, book, or letter left out, so we can all become more familiar with the New Testament landscape. It will be an adventure, so grab a cup of coffee and come on over! All are welcome. Like all good Catholics, BYOB: Bring your own Bible!

Via Lucis- May 3

The Easter Season, which continues for us Catholics to Pentecost, is a time of special grace during which the risen presence of Jesus is palpable for those who stop and take notice. Towards this end, you are invited to attend the paschal Way of the Light, or Via Lucis, on Wednesday, May 3, at 6:30 p.m. This new devotion includes 14 stations for reflection on Christ’s Pasch, from His Resurrection to Pentecost. We will meet outside the main entrance to the church. Facilitated by Fr.Gregory. All are welcome.
