A Season of Joy: Lasting Contentment in a Changing World
Wednesday, December 5, 2018
10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. or 6:00 to 9:00 p.m.
How can we find happiness in a rapidly changing world? No matter our background, age, or culture, the search for fulfillment is at the center of our longing. While our culture directs us to find happiness outside ourselves, the mystery of Christmas reminds us that the true source of joy lies much closer than we might think. We will explore how our favorite Christmas carols contain important secrets about how we can remain grounded and stable when we are confused, challenged, or simply drained by life. Inspired by the Christmas story, we will uncover how even the most difficult moments can become opportunities for growth, wisdom, and lasting contentment.
Programs includes the Sacrament of Reconciliation and celebration of the Eucharist.
Offering: $40 (includes lunch)
