Summer Salt for the Soul
     … to flavor     … to season      … to preserve

We offer many things during the year to enhance, strengthen and expand our understanding of faith.  These are usually done as a series of 5 to six weeks.  Many people cannot commit themselves to a series.  So, over the summer there will be four one-night offerings and two morning offerings.  Hope you will be able to avail yourselves of one or all.  The offerings will be: Prayer Beads (June 4 – evening 7:00 PM), Abrahamic Religions June 11 – 7:00 PM).  Names and images for God (July 23 – 9:30 AM or 7:00 PM); Paul’s Letter to Philemon (July 30 – 9:30 AM or 7:00 PM) and Experience at the Border (August 7 at 7:00 PM).  Watch the bulletin for more details as the date approaches.  No registration will be required – just come and add a bit of flavor to your summer. –Sister Teresa

PRAYER BEADS

Prayer beads are used by members of various religious traditions such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, Sikhism and the Bahá’í Faith to mark the repetitions of prayers, chants or devotions. The beads most precious to us are called rosary beads. Come and learn about the prayer beads in other religious traditions with a focus on the rosary in Catholicism.  JUNE 4.  7-8:15 PM Hendricks Hall (Carr Room).

 

ABRAHAMIC RELIGIONS

The Abrahamic religions are Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  During this session we will learn how that came to be.  It would be helpful, if you brought your Bible.  JUNE 11.  7-8:15 PM Hendricks Hall (Carr Room).

 

NAMES AND IMAGES OF GOD

We call God by many names: Father, Creator, Savior, Almighty for example but there are hundreds of names for God.  We also have many images that we use for God: Protector, Savior, Judge.  During this session we will explore these and the implications of the names and images we use.  This will be offered July 23 at 9:30 AM (after 9 o’clock Mass until 11 AM OR July 23 7:00 – 8:30 PM Hendricks Hall (Berry Room).

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

The Installation Mass for Bishop Designate Robert Brennan as the twelfth Bishop of Columbus will take place on Friday, March 29 at 2:00 p.m. at St. Joseph Cathedral. There will also be an Evening Vespers Service with Bishop Designate Robert Brennan on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 p.m. Due to space restrictions at the Cathedral, attendance at both Vespers and the Installation Mass is by invitation only. Parish lay participation at these historic celebrations is essential to Bishop Brennan and the Installation Committee, so our parish has selected Mr. and Mrs. Daniel and Stephanie Hackett to attend the Vespers, and Mr. and Mrs. Jeff and Maureen Zimmerman to attend the Installation Mass to represent Saint Brigid of Kildare at these services.

Both events will be livestreamed and viewable online via Facebook, YouTube, at www.columbuscatholic.org, and live on the EWTN Network; check with your cable provider for station information.

Evening of Art Reflection

By | Uncategorized | No Comments


PRAYER as a Lenten Practice
.

We generally think of prayer as something we read, say, or listen to. But prayer can also be a visual experience. Images can often evoke rich nuance and meaning that cannot be replicated in words. Similarly, art can bring another dimension to prayer, because it taps into and draws forth from our religious imagination.  One way to use art reflection is to use a piece of art created by someone else and let it draw us into prayer.  The other is to create our own piece of art that is drawn from our own prayer and reflection.  We will be doing the latter. 

Join us on March 13 as parishioner and artist Dawn Petrill guides us through the process of creating our own art through prayer and reflection.  Dawn says of herself, “I have a passion for discovering inspiration in life and translating it into art.”  Dawn will guide each of us through the process of creating our own art through reflection.  We will be using paints so wear casual clothes. 

Space is limited to 25 people, so register early. 
March 13th at 7:00 PM in Hendricks Hall – Berry Room. 
Cost $20 (will cover all materials). 
Register by March 6 through our website or by coming into the Parish Office. 

Registration begins at 9:00 AM on Monday, February 18.

Register here beginning Feb 18.
