Welcome . . to Our Lady of Lourdes † St. Anne . . .
Workshop on Bias
In last Sunday’s Gospel we heard Jesus outline a process for people in situations where one has injured the other. Even before undertaking the steps the Lord describes, it is helpful to prayerfully and humbly prepare ourselves. This is particularly the case with the divisions within our society. As our clsuter considers how we, as a community of faith and followers of Christ, can help diminish the divisions in the wider community, please join us for a Workshop on Bias, led by Mr. Frank Staropoli in the St. Anne Social Hall on Thursday at 7PM. The experience will be helpful to us as preparation for trying to bring God’s healing to the wider community. - Fr Gary Tyman
Alpha - Third Session
We begin our third session of Alpha on Monday, September 25th. This is an exciting 10 week program considering the basics of Catholic Christian faith and strengthening our experience of community. Each Monday evening we will begin at 6PM with dinner, followed by a short video presentation on some aspect of our faith, which leads into small group discussion. The membership of each small group remains the same throughout the program, so that people can really get to know each other and develop ties that allow for deeper discussion on what most concerns us in light of our faith. If you have any questions about Alpha, please contact Deacon John and Betsy McDermott, or me, Fr Tyman.
