This past week, we had the privilege of listening to Simone Campbell's dynamic presentation on her theology of abundance and her insights into the reality of 21st century poverty.
She left us with a beautiful poem about the power of community
and with four virtues to live as a faith community:
joy; holy curiosity;sacred gossip (sharing what you have heard and learned)
and doing your part.
If you missed the event, there is still an opportunity to buy her latest book:
A Nun on the Bus: How All of Us Can Create Hope, Change and Community.
Books are for sale at a discounted price of $13 in the parish office (1025 Masonic).
You make our work possible.
