Spiritual Enrichment

Saturday

Where have we experienced joy in our lives and where might we being called to find it anew?  Using Pope Francis’ Joy of the Gospel as our basis, we will take a closer look at those moments or times when we have experienced joy and love.  Then we will begin to reflect on where the Spirit may be leading us at this time.  Through prayer, reflection, quiet time, journaling, and discussion we will attempt to delve more deeply into this question of joy and where it is or isn’t in our lives.  Then we will take up the challenges of Pope Francis to discern where God may be sending us to discover joy anew.

I realize of course that joy is not expressed the same way at all times in life, especially at moments of great difficulty.  Joy adapts and changes, but it always endures, even as a flicker of light born of our personal certainty that, when everything is said and done, we are infinitely loved (Joy of the Gospel 6).”

1:30-4:30pm   This program is offered on a sliding scale from $10 - $25

Leader: Deacon Kevin McCarthy


It is the duty of every cultured man or woman to read sympathetically the scriptures of the world. If we are to respect others' religions as we would have them respect our own, a friendly study of the world's religions is a sacred duty.
- Mahatma Gandhi
