February 28th House Meeting

By | Home Page News | No Comments
The beatitudes speak of justice; Lent is a time we examine how we can more fully live out our lives following the Gospel. Those are two great reasons to join fellow parishioners on Wednesday, February 28th at 7pm in Centennial Hall for a “House Meeting” sponsored by the St. Anselm MOC (Marin Organizing Committee) core team.  We will identify issues in our local and wider community where we can make a difference. MOC is best known for REST, the program that has fed the homeless for 10 years and work on Immigration and Housing.  There may be issues closer to our hearts that need to be addressed and we are asking you.  Join us in this exploration!
Thank you,
Pat Langley
