Announcement from Holy Family parish:
Living our faith in today’s world is a challenge. Combining family life with work is tough enough in itself; finding time to pray and get to Mass can feel like an added challenge. In addition, it can be hard to reconcile contemporary cultural trends, lifestyles, and world view, with Church teachings which are often misrepresented in the media and/or difficult to understand, or can simply seem out of touch.
At the same time, the Catholic Faith is a source of inspiration and strength for countless men and women of all ages around the world. It can be a moral and spiritual anchor, a driving force for increased respect of human dignity, and a key for interpreting the events and dilemmas of our dynamic, information-filled, and constantly more connected world.
Young Catholic adults, wherever you are in that picture, we want to hear your thoughts and get to know you! As a parish we want to better address your needs and answer your questions, and bring together Catholic adults who can support each other.
So, we would like to invite young Catholic adults (parishioners of Holy Family or not, ages roughly 20’s-30’s) to meet at the Dog Bar on Thursday, February 21, at 7PM, for an informal gathering to get to know each other over food and drink, and to discuss plans for future social, service, and prayer activities. We will be easy to find, as Fr. Matthew Green will be there sitting at a table wearing his distinctive Roman collar, probably munching on a plate of nachos or wings…
If you plan on attending, please RSVP by Wednesday the 20th by email to this address: capeanncya (at) zoho.com
You can also stop in last minute if necessary, but it would be helpful for me to have an estimate of how many people will be there, to give a “heads up” to the management. Hope to see you there!
- Fr. Matthew Green
