CABRINI COMMUNITY EVENINGS
For these events contact Joe White, 612-339-3023 ext.114 or email@example.com.
Throughout the year we will be offering five Cabrini Community Evenings centering around the liturgical calendar:
October 24, 2012 – CABRINI ALL SAINTS/ALL SOUL’S EVENING
The Ancients believed that this was a time when the veil between this world and the next was the thinnest. For them, this was a sacred time to celebrate the ancestors and those special people who have passed on. We are all part of the Communion of Saints. Through presentation, prayer and hands on projects, we will remember those special Saints in our church and celebrate and remember those special saints in our lives.
November 28, 2012 – CABRINI ADVENT EVENING
In what is, for many, a very busy time of year, we invite you to step away from the hustle and bustle. Join us for an experiential evening of prayer, discussion, and hands on participation as we nurture our spirits while preparing to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
January 9, 2013 – CABRINI EPIPHANY EVENING (Pot Luck Dinner)
On Epiphany the Magi visited Jesus and offered him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh. As we come together on this Epiphany evening we are reminded of these gifts, and the gifts that we offer each other. Join us for a pot luck dinner, followed by discussion, prayer and activities designed to help us discover our own gifts, the gifts of others, and how we are all called to share these with the world around us.
February 6, 2013 – CABRINI CARNIVAL/NIGHT OF TRANSITION EVENING
It’s time for CARNIVAL!!!!! Join us for a Mardi Gras potluck dinner—complete with games, events and a special prize for whoever finds the baby in the “king’s cake.” Our evening ends with a prayer ritual that will close with the burning of palms into ashes for Ash Wednesday the following week. Join us as we transition into the Lenten season.
May 15, 2013 - CABRINI PENTECOST EVENING
The Spirit is always present and active, giving new life to our Church. Join us for an evening of prayer, discussion and hands-on activities, as we discover and celebrate the many ways that the fruits and gifts of the Spirit bring “new life” to our lives everyday.
PARISH ADULT EDUCATION
For these events contact Dave Schultz, Education Committee, 612-708-1924 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Each of us is called to continue growing in faith throughout our lives, and the Education Committee seeks to be one source of deeper reflection and understanding of what it means to be faithful people in our daily lives. Inspired by the concept of the Church as the “People of God” introduced in Lumen Gentium, one of the central documents of the Second Vatican Council, the Education Committee will provide opportunities for community members to explore this theme, through speakers, educational events, written reflections, shared readings, and times to think and discuss together.
Topics will include:
- People of God: A historical context from lumen gentium
- Laity: Big C little c church
- Call to holiness
