A THREE NIGHT ADVENTURE SERVING THE SPIRITUAL
In Our Work, In Forgiveness, In the Eucharist
Monday — WORK ~a primary vehicle of God’s call in our lives. This beginning
night will connect
God’s great work with ours and the life that results from that
Tuesday — FORGIVENESS ~ The season of Lent encourages us to reconcile,
apologize and forgive. We
will examine a wide range of forgiveness beyond the sacramental experi- ence
particularly in current relationships and the sacredness that flows from
Wednesday — EUCHARIST ~ In Context of the Mass ~ We will see how key
elements of contemporary life
are connected and always fundamental to the celebration of the Eucharist. It
is easy to glance over
the profound sacredness celebrated in Mass.
