Iftar Dinner

By | Adult Faith Education | No Comments


Tuesday, May 28

7:30 p.m.

Hendricks Hall

You are invited to join us for an Iftar dinner. Iftar is the meal that comes at the end of each day of Ramadan. You and our interfaith guests (especially from Turkish American Society of Ohio – TASO) will enjoy the experience of Iftar and fast breaking with our Muslim neighbors. If you have a
neighbor, co-worker or friend who is a Muslim, please invite them to come with you.

Ramadan is the month in which Muslims are required to fast from dawn to dusk, and it can last from 29-30 days. It is a time to empathize with those who are less fortunate and to appreciate what one has. It is a time of personal restraint and renewed focus on moral conduct and spirituality. Fasting during Ramadan is one of the 5 pillars of Islam. As part of the evening Msgr. Joseph Hendricks will present fasting as it is understood in the Christian tradition and one of Muslim guests will share what it means in the Islamic tradition. We begin at 7:30 PM and should end about 9:00. There is no charge, but we do need to know how many are coming so we have enough food. (The food is being provided by our Muslim friends from TASO. If you would like to give a free will offering that is fine but your presence is what is most important.) Please register online or call the Parish Office by May 21, 2019.

Summer Book Series: Everybody Always (By Bob Goff) 
Thursdays, May 23-June 20 from 7-8:30 PM in Hendricks Hall 

In this five-week series, we explore what it truly means to love everybody the way Jesus loves them – without fear, insecurity, or restriction. This begins by loving people right where you are through serving and helping the neighbors God has placed into your world. Above all, it means not just agreeing with Jesus but actually stepping out and doing what Jesus said. 
This series is open to all 2019-20 high school students as well as anyone 18 and older in the parish. We will use the book Everybody Always by Bob Goff, which can be purchased on Amazon or through other vendors. Participation is free but sign up is required. 
Sign up here: or by calling the parish office by May 13, 2019.  

Read the prologue through chapter 3 before our first gathering and bring your book to our first gathering on May 23, 2019. 


Coordinated by Laura Ginikos ( and Sr. Teresa Tuite (
