PARISH MISSION - March 6-8, 2016

Featuring Fr. John Tourangeau, O. Praem.

Join us for Mass on Saturday, March 5, at 4 pm or Sunday, March 6, at 8 am or 10 am. Fr. John will then begin his first presentation at 1 pm on Sunday in Church. On Monday and Tuesday, Fa-ther will do two presentations: one at 9 am and repeated at 7 pm in church. We hope you can make it to Mass and for all three talks, but please join us for as many as your schedule al-lows! No charge, but a free-will offering will be accepted.

Father’s talks will be based upon some of the major themes of the Rediscover Jesus* book by Matthew Kelly of Dynamic Catholic, as well as living, loving and serving with passion and pur-pose.

*A copy of this book can be purchased at the Ss. Edward & Isidore parish office for $1.50 each.
