PLEASE JOIN US FOR “FINDING HOPE ON THE ROAD TO EMMAUS” by Colleen Lowery
Before meeting the risen Lord on the road to Emmaus, the disciples were discouraged by all that had happened. We, too, at times, feel discouraged when our efforts do not achieve the fruitfulness for which we hope and pray. Join us as we break open the Scripture and reflect on how we, just like the disciples after Jesus revealed himself to them, move ahead full of hope, knowing Jesus the Risen One is still with us, meeting us on the pathways of our lives, sharing our concerns, enlightening us with his word, strengthening us with his presence, nourishing us in the breaking of the bread, and sending us forth to be his witnesses.
Date: Tuesday, April 3 at 7:00 p.m. – refreshments to follow. Open to everyone. Bring a friend.
Place: St. Matthew Church, 1555 Glen Ellyn Road, Glendale Heights
Facilitator: Colleen Lowery, M.S.Ed., an instructor for the Cardinal Newman Institute for Lay Formation and a consultant for the Religious Education Office
