Annual Charism Day: “Conversion: Turning Towards Joy”


In the very real struggle of our personal lives, and in the midst of a growing sense of darkness in our world, we are each called with new urgency to move toward the light. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin is quoted as saying: “Joy is the most infallible sign of the presence of God.” This Charism afternoon will be an invitation to turn afresh to that Presence. Inspiring and practical, with humor and deeply human stories, we will each be called to turn our hearts toward Joy.

Date, Time and Cost:

This afternoon program begins at 1:00 PM  on Sunday, March 6, 2016 and ends at 4:00 PM.  The cost is $25.00.
