Cancelled: "The Medicine of Mercy: How Grace Moves Us to Become Persons of Mercy" with Bill Huebsch
We regret to share that this workshop has been cancelled. Preregistered guests will receive a notification and refund from our office. We apologize for any inconvenience.
In his opening speech at Vatican II, Saint John XXIII proclaimed that the time has come for the Church, “to use the medicine of mercy rather than taking up arms of severity.” The medicine of mercy, indeed. Here at the 50th anniversary of the close of Vatican II and the beginning of the Jubilee Year of Mercy (both occurring on December 8, 2015) let us pause to consider together how we can become persons of mercy and how we can lead our church to become a beacon of mercy to the world. This workshop is jointly sponsored by PastoralPlanning.com.
