Reading “Rejoice and Be Glad”

“Go in peace, glorifying the Lord by your lives.” These words are used at Mass to send us back out into the world, to glorify the Lord.  But how do we do that?  How can our little lives add anything to the splendor and majesty of God?  Join us on five consecutive Tuesdays to explore Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation “Rejoice and Be Glad: On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World”.

In five chapters, the Holy Father explores ways in which the Lord calls us all to holiness, “each in his or her own way”. Sessions will begin at 6 pm, and last about an hour. Each session will focus on one of the five chapters of the document.  No registration is required.  Presenter:  Fr. M. Keith LaBove, Pastor

Where:  St. Patrick Catholic Church – 406 E. Pinhook Road, Lafayette, LA
When: Tuesdays:  October 30, & November 6, 13, 20 & 27
Starting at:  6 p.m.
