Seminarian Talk: What is Freedom?

What does it mean for a person to be free? How does this fit into our Catholic Faith? How does this affect how we live our lives? What does this mean for the larger community and public life? Join us for a short talk from Trinity Parish’s Summer seminarian Greg Caldwell along with Q and A. There will be coffee and light refreshments.

 

Totus Tuus Catechetical Program for Grade School & High School

“Totus Tuus is Latin for ‘totally yours’ and is a Catholic youth program dedicated to sharing the Gospel and promoting the Catholic faith through catechesis, evangelization, Christian witness, and Eucharistic worship. The goal of Totus Tuus is to help young people grow in their understanding of, and strengthen their faith in, Jesus Christ. The program strives to bring our faith to life by creating a balance between knowledge of the meaning of the Sacraments and an authentic Sacramental life.”

Trinity Parish is hosting Totus Tuus June 19th through June 23rd 2017 for Grades 1-8, and June 18th through June 22nd 2017 for High School.

Presentation by Our Summer Seminarian

Our summer seminarian, Steven Marchand will be giving the second of a two-part presentation for the parish speaking about how Catholicism has and does affect culture. Attendance of the first part is not necessary to attend the second part. Topics will include questions such as: How does a Catholic view the world? How does a Catholic relate with creation and spiritual realities? Do the sacraments affect my worldview? How does prayer and the liturgy affect me and the wider culture? What is the role of beauty in our lives?

Where? The parish hall right next to St. Theresa’s Church in Orleans. Click here for directions.
