Healing Our Church: Coming This Lent

In the aftermath of the grand jury report on the sex abuse scandal in our diocese and throughout Pennsylvania, many of us are left with a myriad of emotions — anger, sadness, and pain among others. In an effort to help all of us process these feelings, the Parish Pastoral Council via RENEW international invites all members of the parish to an informal discussion in a safe environment, where you can share your thoughts and concerns. This program “Healing our Church” is developed by RENEW and facilitated by  members of the Parish Pastoral Council and fellow parishioners. Our hope is that through this Lenten series of prayer, and listening and dialogue, we can heal and continue to grow the joyful spirit of our parish and in the process, make our faith community stronger.

Topics of discussion will include: “Facing the Truth,” “Healing Our Wounds,” “Rebuilding Our Church,” “Why Do I Remain Catholic,” “We Believe,” and “A Way Forward.” We hope you will join us on Monday, March 11th at either 1 PM and 7 PM in the Church Hall for our first week of sessions. Sign up information will be forthcoming.For more information, please contact the Parish Office at 610-433-6102.
