FRANCIS: THE POPE, THE SAINT, AND OUR PARISH
Thursday Evenings: November 22nd, 29th and December 6th at 7pm in the Parish Hall


Restoring the Church is an important symbol for the parish community, reminding us to make time and space for God in an otherwise mundane and overly busy world. It is also a summons to renew the life of the parish, so that it exemplifies a community of faith that communicates the possibility of building a society that embodies peace, justice, and truth. Richard Shields will lead three sessions exploring how Saint Francis of Assisi has been an inspiration for Pope Francis, making connections between the Church building and the people of the Church. These three sessions will explore the opportunity that the renovation of St. Augustine’s Church can provide for renewing and revitalizing parish life.
