Event Details

We are experiencing a “different” kind of Easter Season . . . one filled with a myriad of deep, even existential, concerns.  The Gospel urges us to see these issues (and all of human suffering) with the eyes of Christian faith and to recognize the overwhelming grace available amidst loss and grief.  The Holy Spirit wants to break through and enflame in us a deepening conversion so that we can be conduits of hope and healing in the world.  Let us explore our call to transformational (not transactional) lifestyle and ministry and how we build a Catholic pastoral culture that leans radically into Paschal Mystery.  God is victorious over sin and death, even at 3 a.m.  And, indeed, a new Pentecost is on the horizon!
