Much More To Do Around Town

Synod Timeline Update 

Thank you to all those who participated in the first year of the Synod process! Over 8000 people participated in the 19 general prayer and listening events and 11 focus sessions, providing over 35,000 comments. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Archbishop Hebda has decided to delay the Parish Consultation with Small Groups from Fall 2020 to Fall 2021 to focus on our parishes and schools without distraction. The exact dates will be forthcoming. The focus areas for the Synod will still be announced soon! Stay in the loop by reading The Catholic Spirit newspaper or online at thecatholicspirit.com. Please continue to pray for the Synod and stay up to date with resources at www.archspm.org/synod.

Join with others who were sexually abused by clergy when they were adults. There are others who share a similar experience and who want to provide support, affirmation, hope, and empowerment. Often there is another layer of healing that is needed for these victim/survivors. This group will meet on the first Monday of the month beginning June 1. 

Offered in Two Great Ways this June—in Person or Online!
Join over 1,000 students who are now “activated disciples!” The experience begins June 2, at St. Pius X in White Bear Lake, and participants have the option to join in person, or via Livestream, for any or all of the lessons! Taught by Jeff Cavins, this course is open to all adults and teaches the basics of discipleship, how to share your faith with confidence, and how to cultivate a deeper life of prayer. In this 4-week course, students become “activated disciples” and embark on a guided 40-day discipleship challenge to help put what they learn into practice. The course culminates on August 8, with an interactive seminar featuring Jeff Cavins and Dr. Mary Healy, followed by a social gathering, where students share stories of their experience living as activated disciples. The cost for the course, materials, and seminar is $125. For more information visits semssp/ci.

Pacem In Terris

Retreat Center in Isanti Minnesota

Pacem in Terris is a place of beauty and incredible peace. Everyone who comes through the door feels special because they sense that God has prepared this place just for them. But our community house–Our Lady of Pacem–is only a doorway that leads to the heart of Pacem; the hermitage. In that sanctuary of silence and solitude, riches beyond the human imagination await the open heart. It would be our prayer that one day you will visit as our guest or as a hermit.
