Sacredness of All Creation
Speaker: Bridget Sperduto Wednesday, April 3 9:15 am to 11:15 am COR Center Donation: $8
Bridget Sperduto, M.Ed., is Director of The Well, a center for our sacred unity with God, Earth and one another. She is committed to cultivating and participating in the Christic field of inclusive, outpoured and communing love. Weaving storytelling, scripture, theological, and scientific concepts, Bridget invites adults and children into the profound presence and mystery of God around and within. Bridget is an associate of the Congregation of St. Joseph, is a spiritual director, educator and retreat facilitator.
“I want to know Christ,” claims St. Paul, “and the power of his resurrection, by becoming like him in his death.” As Jesus’ glorified body retains the wounds which he endured in his struggle against evil, so will the bodies of those who follow him. Christians sin when they are so afraid of being wounded that they close their eyes to the demands of the Gospel.
You are invited to a communal celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation, where you can admit the times when you have resisted the way of Jesus Christ. Approximately one hour, this service will include an examination of conscience, the opportunity for private confession, and a ritual around the image of the Risen Christ. Please join the parish community for this Lenten prayer and recommit yourself to stand firm believing in the power of the resurrection.
Please give generously to the 2019 Catholic Ministries Annual Appeal, which supports 30 ministries that serve those in need.
Thank you for being a sign of hope!
