The Perish of St. Benedicts is celebrating the end of a “year of faith” with a three-day outreach to the community focusing on how to balance faith with everyday life.
Father Robert Gielow of the Vincentian Mission will be visiting the perish from Monday, Nov. 18 to Wednesday Nov. 20. He will share a message during Mass each night, the focus of which will be on how to balance life’s demands with faith and religion.
Each night will be self-contained so the public is invited to listen to all three or just come for one evening. The service will begin at 6:30 p.m. and go until 8 p.m.
Sister Colleen Braun, director of faith formation for the perish, said they’ve been celebrating a “year of faith” since the end of September of 2012. At that time they kicked off the year with a visiting bishop from Tucson coming to speak to the perish. Throughout the year there has been emphasis on building faith.
“Faith is for everyone,” Braun said. “We’re advertising this event to other parishes and anyone who is faithful and wants to learn more about faith.”
Braun said the talks will be more meaningful to those who are Catholic, but that the topic could be applicable to anyone who is faithful.
“Faith is faith,” she said. “Father Bob is not going to be doing specific teachings on the Catholic church necessarily, but really going over what is faith in Jesus Christ and how can we grow in that?”
The church is located at 16223 S. 48th St. For more information, visit www.stbenedict.org.
