Come to Colorado Springs and join us in God's country for two one-of-a-kind events.
On August 30, the Institute and the Diocese of Colorado Springs will be sponsoring An Evening with Mark Shea.
Mark will speak on The Care and Feeding of the Lay Catholic Apostle . Lay Catholics are called to do the vast majority of the work in the New Evangelization. This talk gives some tips, not only to lay people about the cultural and theological glitches that confront the lay apostle in Millennial America, but to clergy and pastoral leaders who are interested in helping to form their flocks into fellow workers in the Vineyard.
The evening will feature a talk, Q & A, and reception/social hour afterwards. The presentation will begin at 7:00pm on Thursday, August 30 '07 in the parish hall downstairs at Holy Apostles Catholic Church (4925 Carefree Circle North Colo Spgs, CO 80917). A free will offering will be taken to cover expenses.
And on August 31, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (adults only*)
The Catherine of Siena Institute is presenting a day-long gathering on the subject of "Building Intentional Community" at beautiful Penrose House in Colorado Springs.
One of the comments we hear repeatedly from lay people around the country is a desire for a deeper experience of community and personal support as we seek to follow Christ in our parishes, families, and in the marketplace.
Come hang out, share, discuss, stroll, pray, eat, and play with former members of the famously Nameless Lay Group of Seattle including Mark Shea, Sherry Weddell, and other denizens of the Intentional Disciples blog. We will be drawing upon the wisdom of Scripture, contemporary Church teaching, Canon Law, your own experience of Christian community and what we have learned as we have traveled to hundreds of parishes around the country. You will also have the chance to participate in a small Christian community gathering.
A catered lunch will be provided and the day will conclude with a 6pm barbecue at a local park.
The day at Penrose House is for adults only but we invite family, children, and friends to the evening barbeque.
