This program is part of a series in which we look to our spiritual heritage for examples of people who have survived tough times. We are currently particularly challenged by the pandemic and systemic racism – and all their attendant difficulties. Others before us have leaned into the Gospels and let God’s mercy flow through them as they took on the challenges of their day: Catherine McAuley, Katherine Drexel, Howard Thurman, Berta Caçeres and our own families. Let their stories inspire you now. Please join us for one or more of these evenings!
Every family has “skeletons” in its closet, but how about saints? On November 1, the Feast of All Saints, the Church celebrates the goodness, wisdom and strength in all people, including those who have carried our families through tough times. We will share stories about grandparents, parents, aunts and uncles whose faith, fortitude and love in the face of adversity can be examples for us today. We will examine how this genetic spiritual hardiness can sustain us as we honor and pray to our family saints. Bring pictures if you wish!
Cost: $25. Scholarships are available because everyone is welcome at Cranaleith. Please write to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can assist you.
