Sunday, August 27 • 11 a.m.
The Rev. Canon Rhonda M. Lee, co-author of Love and Happiness. Rhonda will give a talk entitled, “Beatrice’s Smile: Love, Politics, and the Path to God in Dante’s Comedy.” Drawing on one of the world’s greatest love stories, she will invite us each to consider: What are my earthly desires and loyalties that can either draw me closer to or farther from, God? Who are the fellow pilgrims who help me use my gifts to better love God and my neighbor, and how can I accompany others in their efforts to do the same?
Be part of St. Michael's permanent history by signing your family up for a parish photo. We've been publishing directories for close to 70 years, and we want your family to be part of this fall's project. Mark your calendars for Sept. 17-20 and Oct. 4-7, when representatives from Carico Productions will be on site taking pictures of every family.
No purchase is necessary. Every family photographed will receive a free directory.
Please join us for classes!
