Adam Storey Parish Mission

March 31, 2019 - April 2, 2019

LIFE OF PASSION, LIFE OF LOVE

In this parish mission, Adam Storey will show how a life of passion must be rooted in a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. It is in Jesus where we encounter the most passionate lover conceivable. It is in Him where we find fulfillment of the heart's deepest desires. Adam will explore the value of this relationship, common challenges to this relationship, and he'll offer practical and simple ways for everyone to grow in this most precious relationship with God. 

Sunday, March 31, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
Passionate Hearts:
The heart of the Christian life is about entering into a loving relationship with God- who first seeks us. During this first evening, Adam will explore why we must open our hearts to God, helping participants see that He is what our hearts most long for- for it is in this relationship where we are most alive. Using the lives of the saints and personal stories, Adam will show that our relationship with God truly has the power to transform us.

Monday, April 1, 2019: 8am, Holy Family Church
This morning session will cover a condensed version of the topics covered in all three evening sessions. 

Monday, April 1, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
When the Rubber Meets the Road:
It's easy to think that a vibrant relationship with Jesus is a gift only offered to a few. Not so. In this talk, Adam will show that developing and nurturing this relationship with Jesus is accessible to all of us. however, there are challenges along the way. In this second evening, Adam will explore common challenges for every Catholic, including struggling to find time, feeling awkward, and attempts to hide ourselves from God- and what we can do about it. 

Tuesday, April 2, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
Let's Get Real:
Every love story is different, and so is every relationship with the Lord. However, there are small patterns of holiness every Christian can embark upon each day. In this final evening, Adam will offer five simple and concrete disciplines a disciple of the Lord Jesus can add to their day, allowing them to greater fall in love with God and his Catholic Church.

Anointing

April 4, 2019

Holy Family will be offering an Anointing Mass on Thursday, Arpil 4 at 10:00 am at Sacred Heart Church. Several priests will be available for the anointing. Sacred Heart is conveniently accessible for people with wheelchairs. All are welcome.

Since the renewal of the sacraments after Vatican II, the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick has experienced changes. The very name for this sacrament has been changed; from Extreme Unction, which describes a sacrament for the dying, to Anointing of the Sick, which describes a sacrament for those who are ill. The sacrament confers a special grace on persons experiencing illness. The sacrament may be offered more than once, especially in the case of a person becoming seriously ill again or the worsening of a condition. The sacrament is administered to bring spiritual and even physical strength during an illness, especially near the time of death. It is a rite that conveys God’s grace through the power of the Holy Spirit.

 

What's Behind the Smoke

April 8, 2019

You are invited to join us for an evening of knowledge, purpose, and advocacy. Sandy Bernier, Tobacco Control Coordinator, will share her expertise on some of the latest trends of juuling, e-cigarettes, and vaping. The risks involving these products, for teens and adults, are greater than we believe.

Also that evening, Holy Family parish member, Linda Kroll, will describe her experience of trying to help her son, Adam, battle through his marijuana and alcohol addictions and his death. Hear the ways God has blessed her through grief. A true testimony of how, if we listen, God can help us turn over our worst losses into something so meaningful.

We hope to see you April 8, at
Holy Family Hall, at 6:00 pm.
