What will be covered?

St. Paul exhorts us: Keep your eyes fixed on Jesus. As disciples of Jesus we are invited to encounter Christ so deeply that the relationship with Him takes over our lives. All our actions to bring about social justice should naturally overflow from our encounter with Jesus Christ. These actions bring about encounters with Christ which are uniquely different from mystical, charismatic, and sacramental experiences and enhance our awareness of God’s presence in our lives. Fr. Archambault will share life experiences from his thirty three years of being a pastor in an urban parish on how Catholic Social Teaching flows from scripture and can take flesh in our parishes and in our minds and hearts.
