Holy Spirit Missions Day of Reflection and Celebration – December 19th
“An evangelizing community gets involved…they take on the ‘smell of the sheep’” – Pope Francis
All are invited to join us for a day of reflection and celebration on Saturday, December 19th, beginning at 2:00 p.m. We’ll attend the 5:00 p.m. Mass and conclude with a celebration at 6:00 p.m. in the School Gym.
We will kick off the day with a time of prayer and reflection on the Mission Church as inspired by Pope Francis. It will be an opportunity for us to reflect on the challenge the Pope has made to the Church to go to the peripheries of our society – to go outside our comfort zones, and to encounter Jesus Christ in the poor and the marginalized.
We’ll attend 5:00 p.m. Mass, then everyone is invited to the Holy Spirit School Gym for the Community Celebration to celebrate our missions to the periphery of Central America, Mississippi, New Mexico, East Texas and San Jose. The celebration is an opportunity for the community to share in the 2015 mission trips. There will be dinner, music, a dessert raffle, jewelry sales, and more! Dinner is from 7:00-9:00 p.m. (doors open at 6:00 p.m.)
The event is free, but you must RSVP on the parish website so we can plan accordingly. Click here to RSVP.
