YEAR OF AMORIS LAETITIA.
The Pope has invited us to read and celebrate a whole year on the encyclical signed by him 5 years ago, about the holiness of Family Life.
- As we did with the proclamation of the Year of St. Joseph, we will participate actively on the study, reflection and celebration of the sanctity of human life, during the whole year.
- Because of Covid-19 some of the activities will be virtual and some of them will be in person in church.
- IN PARTICULAR: 1 – We will present a 10-week Program on the Spirituality of St. John Paul II on THE THEOLOGY OF THE BODY.
- 2 – CHILDREN’S ROSARY GROUP beginning on May 1st. More info will follow. 3 – WEEKLY STUDY of the document AMORIS LAETITIA, with small videos on different topics of the document.
- During the year we will organize various events, like Marriage Renewal Weekend, Chastity for Teenagers, Retreat for Singles and Grandparents and various celebrations of ANNIVERSARIES of Marriage (5-25-50-75).
