 ”Hearing the Good News of Jesus Christ All Over Again— For the First Time.”

As part of your Lenten observance, please join us in welcoming back Marie “Marijka” Chmilewsky Ulanowicz, former Director of Adult Faith Formation at the St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Prince Frederick, Maryland, and Master’s graduate of Washington Theological Union, DC, with a concentration in Sacred Scripture.

Last Wednesday night we explored the “good news” of our own lives in light of the Good News that comes through the Gospel and St. Paul’s letters.  On Wednesday evening, March 25th, Marijka will lead us during her final talk into the personal and theological meanings of “salvation,” “justification,” “reconciliation,” “sanctification,” and “transformation.”  Please enter through the side door on 2nd Ave., and join us in the Chapel at 6:30 or join us at 5:30 for dinner first and stay for the program.
