Lenten Series Presentation - 7:00 p.m. in the church. Please join us , for our final speaker, Susan Kadota, a member of SSJ’s Mission Engagement Center. On March 23rd, Susan Drees Kadota will lead a panel of Sts. Simon & Jude parishioners sharing how their hearts were transformed by answering the call to reach out to others. Pope Francis is calling us to create a culture of Encounter – through reaching out and encountering our brothers and sisters wherever they are. How can we go about creating this culture of Encounter? Start by coming to listen to Michele Volz (Ignatian Spirituality Project), Ellen Roy (Mary's Path) and Susan talk about their experiences reaching out to immigrants, homeless men and women living in addiction, and pregnant teens. Listen to how their hearts were transformed by their encounters and how they are living out this transformation. The time together will include time for personal reflection and concrete ideas for ways to reach out to fellow parishioners, others near-by, and even globally.
