Parish Lenten Mission: Fr. Thomas Loya
Mon. April 3 & Tues. April 4 at 7pm. Using Pope St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body, Sacred Scripture, Christian mysticism, the arts, and the liturgical heritage of the Eastern Catholic Churches, Fr. Loya helps people to transform their lives through the rediscovery of the original “ethos of seeing” the Sacramental-liturgical worldview. This is a way of seeing life – and indeed the entire created order – honestly, as it truly is, and, in turn, learning how to relate honestly to the entire created order, most especially to the human person.
