Charlie Neuman, OFS had his first Mercy Mat blessed by Fr. David at St. Ben's. We will begin our contributions to this important ministry at our Fraternal Gathering on Wednesday night, Dec. 9, at 6:00 p.m. in the chapel, then onto the Board Room at 6:20. Please bring plastic bags, scissors, rotary cutters, and cutting mats, if you have them. Or just willing hands to participate!
If you are able to bring and food donations they will be given to to the House of Peace as part of their collection in support of families in need this Christmas.
Question was asked if we'll be doing the Joy of the Gospel. Not quite sure - I'd suggest reading sections 176-202 in the hopes that our conversation turns toward the social dimension of evangelization as we join in service.
We talked at our last fraternal gathering about helping out at St. Ben's Community Meal Program together as a fraternity. If you are able to make it on Sunday, December 6 at 4:30 p.m. to St. Ben's a at 1015 N. 9th St., Milwaukee, please let Charlie Neuman know.
