Local Events for Lent

A LENTEN OPPORTUNITY

The Care of Creation Ministry of St. Eugene has invited Father John Rausch to come to share his knowledge and understanding of the social and ecological concerns as they relate to all of us as Christians.  Fr. Rausch is a Glenmary priest and director of the  Catholic Committee of Appalachia.

“My main ministry is to help people think,” says Farther John Rausch.  He will further share in our community by celebrating the weekend masses.  Please join us for two events.

Friday, February 22, 7 p.m.  “The 7th Day of Creation: The Spirituality of Working in God’s Garden.”  Based on the 7th Day as one of rest and appreciation, the talk will use stories to focus on the scriptural, theological and ecclesiastical teachings about humanity’s role in the care of creation.  The Q & A following will invite participants to engage the topic through their own stories and concerns.  The evening is intended to stretch the imagination and spark some inspiration.

Saturday, February 23, 9 a.m. – 1 p.m.  “The Rising Tide and Destructive Storms of Climate Change.”  We’ll begin the morning with viewing “The Hungry Tide” a documentary about south Pacific islands endangered from global warming.  Following the documentary, there will be three breakout sessions on local endeavors to care for creation.

Both events will be held in the Social Hall. Father Rausch will also be celebrating the weekend masses on Sunday.
