 Council of the Baptized Open Forum, January 9, 2018

  

The Council of the Baptized will be using the Open Forum time on Tuesday, January 9, to plan its 2018 focus.   You are welcome to join us or to email us your ideas at info@cccr-cob.org

Our meeting is as usual at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church, 700 S. Snelling, St. Paul, at 7:00 p.m. 

 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.
