Busy-People's Retreat: "Rekindling Hope"

The world can challenge even the most firm believer, and it can come in all areas of our life. There may be times we feel tempted to feel discouraged, and to even give in to that discouragement. And yet St. Paul encourages us with the words, "Hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us” (Rom 5:5).

How do you rekindle hope when you are discouraged? Where do you find hope?

This virtue of Hope will be the focus of Jordan Ministry Team's October Busy-People’s Retreat. Using stories from Scripture, from the tradition of the Church, and from our lives, retreat leader Peggy Guerrero will explore the many facets of the gift of Hope.

The cost for the retreat is $15; light refreshments will be provided. To register, please contract Jordan Ministry Team at JMT@jordanministry.org or (520)623-2563.

Luthen Lecture: "Eucharist: Pathway to Spiritual Transformation, Healing and Discipleship"

In the Gospels, Jesus literally ate with “saints and sinners” alike; and many walked away transformed, healed of their sins, and eager to share their story with others. Each time we come to Mass, we, too, dine with Jesus, but do we walk away any different? This presentation by Dr. Mary Amore of Mayslake Ministries will explore the ways that our experience of Jesus in the Eucharist can be a pathway to spiritual transformation, healing and a renewed call to discipleship.

About the presenter: Dr. Mary Amore holds a Doctor of Ministry Degree in Liturgy and Master of Arts in Pastoral Studies from Catholic Theological Union in Chicago. Dr. Amore is the author of Primary Symbols of Worship and the Call to Participation, as well as the creator of the DVD Series: Eucharist: Pathway of Transformation, Healing and Discipleship published by Pauline Media.  A Cardinal Bernardin Scholar and distinguished member of the North American Academy of Liturgy, she has been a presenter at the LA Religious Education Congress, University of Dallas Ministry Conference, Diocese of New Hampshire Ministry Conference, as well as conducting parish missions, retreats, and adult faith formation programs. Dr. Amore serves as the Executive Director of the Chicago-based Mayslake Ministries and is a proud member of the Catholic speakers bureau, CMG Booking.

Thanks to the support of benefactors and friends, each of the lectures in the Lüthen Lecture Series is free and open to the public; no registration is required and all are welcome.

Each lecture begins at 7:00pm and is followed by a reception. A free-will offering will be collected after the lecture to help support Casa Hogar de los niños, a Salvatorian-sponsored orphanage in Venezuela.
