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.

New Bishop for the Diocese of Columbus

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

We have been notified that His Holiness Pope Francis has appointed the Most Reverend Robert J. Brennan, currently Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Center, New York, as the 12th Bishop of Columbus.  He succeeds Bishop Frederick F. Campbell, whose resignation and retirement, has been accepted by the Holy Father.

 The following You Tube link is a great introduction to Bishop Brennan.  It was produced by the Diocese of Rockville Centre and is titled, “Sending Forth a Shepherd.”

Bishop Brennan will be installed as Bishop of Columbus during a Mass on Friday, March 29, 2019.  Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Campbell as Apostolic Administrator of the Diocese of Columbus, and he will continue to lead the Diocese until the Mass of Installation.

Please keep both Bishops in your prayers as they prepare for the transition.

Let’s Have a Little Something and Talk about Funeral Planning

It is not easy to walk through the maze of funeral planning. There are many options, many ways and many different laws to consider. There are 50 things that must be done (and probably many more). Tidd Funeral Home will sponsor a seminar to help you with all of that. Terry Thomas, a parishioner at St. Brigid of Kildare, and a licensed funeral director along with Dale Dunne, a pre-need specialist at Tidd will lead us through the intricacies of funeral planning and answer your questions.

Monday, January 14, 2019
7:00 – 8:30 PM in Hendricks Hall (Berry Room)

There is no charge, but please register on the parish website, so we have enough materials for
everyone. —Sister Teresa Tuite, OP
