33 Days to Merciful Love, A Do-It-Yourself Retreat by Fr. Michael Gaitley, will begin here at Nativity, November 27 at 6:30 pm. During the seasons of Advent and Christmas, let St. Terese of Lisieux be your teacher. St. Terese helps us understand the importance of consoling Jesus when we surrender to his love and mercy by following the “Little Way”. She leads us to console Jesus by accepting the mercy that so many reject and to allow that mercy to be given through us as a gift to so many others. By doing little things with great love, and being merciful to our neighbors in deed, word and prayer, we show Jesus’s love and mercy. Come join us as we go deeper in our understanding of “Divine Mercy.”
Our classes will be facilitated by Corinne Busek. She will lead the classes on November 27, December 4 and 11, and January 8, 15 and 22. The classes will meet Mondays at 6:30 pm in the Nazareth Room. Please let Chris Steffan know if you are interested in attending and if you need the book.
Contact Chris before November 21 so that the materials may be ordered. Phone 701-232-2414 or email Chriss@nativitycatholicchurch.net.
