Are you going to be “Enriched” this May?
Come to Spring Enrichment!
Our Diocese’s 40th annual SPRING ENRICHMENT is just a couple of weeks away. Starting on Monday, May 13 – Thursday, May 13 this four day conference is designed to meet the needs of all people interested in increasing their knowledge of the Catholic faith and the skills to minister in the areas of catechesis, youth ministry, liturgy, pastoral care and parish life.
This year’s Spring Enrichment includes a variety of sessions dealing with the Holy Spirit, Vatican II, evangelization and both basic and advanced theological and scriptural topics. There will also be numerous opportunities for spiritual renewal culminating with a concert Thursday evening, May 16. For most of the four days participants will be able to visit the “Marketplace” and check out the products and services available from various publishers, artists, service providers, crafters, retreat/spiritual centers as well as diocesan offices and programs. For more information, go to our diocesan website ( rcda.org) and click on the link for Spring Enrichment.
Looking for something that would offer you a little “soul time” every day. Then, make a ‘Sacred Space’ in your day, and spend ten minutes, praying, as you sit at your computer at this website which offers the help of on-screen guidance and scripture chosen specially every day.
The following items are accepted in the big blue bin at the corner of our parking lot:
clothing, sheets, blankets, towels, drapery, paired shoes & sneakers, stuffed toys, handbags, belts, and hats.
Every Tuesday & Saturday, St. John’s/St. Ann’s Center serves a hot lunch from 11:30am to 1pm to their economically disadvantaged neighbors in Albany’s South End.
They rely on a variety of organizations, (Churches, men’s/women’s organizations, faith formation classes, youth groups, committees, Boy/Girl Scout troops, school groups, fraternal organizations, offices, etc.) to help them prepare and/or serve the meal.
They are in need of additional groups if they are to continue this service to the poor. If you have a group of 6 – 12 people who would like to help serve God’s poor, please call Leo at 439-2102 or email him at email@example.com.
Thank you on behalf of the staff & volunteers of St. John’s/St. Ann’s Outreach Center and the people they serve in Albany’s South End.
