First Down with Fr. Eric (January 12, 2020)

Dear Friends,

Many people can be drawn to a favorite super hero who helps others. Just like super heroes, our Christian faith is meant to use our gifts to protect others, care for the vulnerable and for those who are victims to other’s selfish motives. For Catholics it is our Social Teachings that come from the Gospel message.

In the year 2020 we find that people can still be slaves to the evil designs of others. Sex trafficking is a horrible sin against humanity. Taking innocent people and ruining their lives. Our baptismal call is to care for all of God’s creation, most especially humanity.

Our Parish is offering an evening of awareness and action on January 16 at 6:30 pm in the Fenlon Hospitality Center. There will be a presentation on Sex Trafficking, to help raise our awareness and discern how we might be instruments of change in this serious issue. We hope everyone will find the evening informative and become aware this can touch the lives of people around us.

Peace in Christ,
Fr. Eric
