Attend “Salt and Light: A Transformative Journey into Catholic Social Teaching,” presented by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati Catholic Social Action Office. Join us on an adventure into the social dimension of the Gospel, focusing on how caring for God’s creation is caring for our brothers and sisters. We’ll use our experience as an example of how we can address any real, local issue of poverty or injustice that calls for a Christian response. Kicking off with an exploration of Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI’s writings, this series will include an immersion experience, and opportunities to transform society by seeing and judging how the Vatican and U.S. bishops’ statements on the Church’s social teaching, can lead us to avenues for action through organized parish social ministry. Five Thursday evening sessions: Sept. 13, 20, 27, Oct. 4 and 11 from 6:30-9 p.m. at the St. Charles Center * Lower Level Lounge. Please register by contacting Tom Kueterman at 419-925-5022 or email firstname.lastname@example.org by August 30. Cost is $25, payable the first night.
