Pray for Dobbs: Informational Webinar

Thursday, October 14 at 2:00 PM (EDT)

Abortion takes the lives of over 600,000 babies per year in the United States. The upcoming Supreme Court case Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is our greatest opportunity in a generation to change that.

Join with Christians across the country – Catholic and Protestant – uniting in prayer and fasting for a just decision in the Dobbs case.

At this webinar, you will hear from legal experts and national faith leaders like the the USCCB pro-life committee’s chair, Archbishop Naumann, on:

• Why Dobbs is important – from both a legal and faith perspective;

• Why Christians across the country are uniting in prayer and fasting; and

• How you can get involved and get others involved.

All registrants will receive the recording and periodic updates on the initiative. (You can unsubscribe at any time.)

Reserve your spot now!

“For he came that you might have life, and life in abundance” – John 10, 10

Do you feel truly alive in your faith?

As Christians, sometimes we get burned out or come to a plateau in our faith. How do we keep the flame ALIVE? How do we stay grounded and alive in our faith? Do we give ourselves the chance and space to be renewed and to grow?

Come reflect with others about life in the faith, our obstacles and struggles, and ways to renew our call to missionary discipleship.

A collaborative effort by the Ignatian Spirituality Center, Maryknoll, the Intercommunity Peace and Justice Center, United Praise, La Red de Pastoral Juvenil, and the Office of Young Adult Ministry.

With Spanish and English tracks. Registration is sliding scale, and we also offer scholarships.

“Yo he venido para que tengan vida, y la tengan en abundancia” (Juan 10,10)

¿Sientes que tu fe está viva?

Como cristianos, a veces nos cansamos o llegamos a un punto en el que estamos atorados en nuestra fe. ¿Cómo mantenemos la flama encendida? ¿Cómo permanecemos enraizados en nuestra fe? ¿Nos damos la oportunidad y el espacio para ser renovados y crecer?

Ven a reflexionar con otros jóvenes sobre la vida en la fe, nuestros obstáculos y retos, y maneras en que podemos renovar nuestro llamado al discipulado misionero.

Este retiro es una colaboración entre el Centro de Espiritualidad Ignaciano, Maryknoll, el Centro Intercomunitario de Paz y Justicia, United Praise, La Red de Pastoral Juvenil, y la Oficina de Pastoral Juvenil.

Con pista en español y en inglés. El costo de inscripción es por escala móvil y también ofrecemos becas.

Grupo Católico de Hombres de San Eduardo

Meeting on October 19 at 6:00 PM in the Social Hall

 Reunión en el Salon el 19 de Octubre a las 6 PM

Our meetings are the 3rd Tuesday of every month.  For our next meeting we will be reading Breathing Under Water by Richard Rohr and be prepared to discuss what we learned and how we can utilize the methods of the Twelve Steps to cleanse ourselves of all worldly addictions.  Here is a description of his book.

Richard Rohr makes a case that the Twelve Steps of Alcoholics Anonymous relate well to Christian teaching and can rescue people who are drowning in addiction and may not even realize it. To survive the tidal wave of compulsive behavior and addiction, Christians must learn to breathe underwater and discover God’s love and compassion. In this exploration of Twelve Step spirituality, Rohr identifies the Christian principles in the Twelve Steps, connecting The Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous with the gospel. He draws on talks he has given for over twenty years to people in recovery and those who counsel and live with people with addictive behavior. Rohr offers encouragement for becoming interiorly alive and inspiration for making one’s life manageable for dealing with the codependence and dysfunction (sin) rampant in our society.

Celebrating the Year of St. Joseph

Pope Francis has declared a Year of St. Joseph, which began on December 8, 2020, and will continue until December 8, 2021. The celebration marks the 150th anniversary of the proclamation of St. Joseph as patron of the universal church. As the pope said in his letter announcing the year, St. Joseph “teaches us that amid the tempests of life, we must never be afraid to let the Lord steer our course.” Special prayers are traditionally offered to St. Joseph each Wednesday and especially during the month of March. (The solemnity of St. Joseph is celebrated March 19.)
