WORLD YOUTH DAY 2019 PANAMA
In one year, there will be a fantastic opportunity for young adults to experience a transformational encounter with the Universal Church. Let’s see if we can get some of the Catholic young adults we know to go to World Youth Day in Panama: The next World Youth Day Pilgrimage is Jan. 21-28 2019, yes a year away! The Archdiocese of Baltimore is going to send a delegation of young adults (18-35ish) on this once in a lifetime adventure. Arrangements are available for flexible payments, but you need to sign up as soon as possible to reserve your space.
Please contact Sarah.Jarzembowski@archbalt.

One Day Retreat at the Shrine of St. Anthony, Ellicott City, MD
9 – 4 pm ($50 per person)
“Beholding the Face of Christ in Others”
Francis beheld the face of Christ through fervent prayer, meditation, and fasting. By doing so, he was able to encounter Christ in everyone he met, rich or poor, friend or enemy. How can we learn to do the same? Come and join us for a day of reflection on what it means to encounter Christ in our neighbor by using the means St. Francis and St. Clare taught us.
