Healing Our Church Discussion Groups begin 3rd week in October


The sexual abuse of children and adults by priests and the cover-up by some in the Church hierarchy may have affected many of us in some way.

In order to provide a place where some of our thoughts can be discussed, our parish is inviting everyone to attend small-group discussions that will be moderated by fellow parishioners.

These sessions are designed to encourage reflection and conversation about the clergy-abuse crisis. The six weeks of faith sharing will begin the 3rd week of October.

The process we’ll be using was created by RENEW International. Registration for these small groups will take place this weekend and next. (29 and Oct. 6).

Please take a moment to locate the sign up cards in your pew and indicate the best day and time that you could meet. We will sort through these and find a time that fits most people’s schedules.

You can put it in the collection plate next week, or leave it in the small box by the side exits.
