 Deacon Trish Vanni to speak at Spirit of St. Stephen's Catholic Community

 On Monday, Jan. 29th at 7 p.m., Spirit of St. Stephen's Catholic Community (2201 First Ave S, Minneapolis) is excited to host Deacon Patricia Sullivan Vanni, MDiv, PhD, to give a talk entitled "Being the Church Together: The breakthroughs of Vatican II -- and beyond." Ecumenical Catholic Communion Deacon Vanni is a theologian who has explored how prayer and church teaching have shaped the self-understanding of the laity. She has spoken on the local and national level and has written extensively on the Sacraments.


Join us as we explore the evolution of our understanding of what it means to be the Church. Through storytelling and teaching, we will explore the critical changes that shaped us before, during and after the Second Vatican Council. These themes continue to call us, through the Holy Spirit, to live as the Body of Christ. All are welcome.
