Presentation: What Can We Do?
The Role of Laity in a Time of Crisis

As the Church undergoes this period of profound crisis, many of us feel helpless as we watch a drama unfold that we can do nothing about. But the truth is that we are not powerless. The history of the Church tells us that lay people have a role to play in the Church’s times of turmoil. Join us for an evening of reflection on the mission of the laity in times of ecclesial crisis and learn what you can do to cooperate with Christ’s action to purify and heal His Church. Speaker: Meghan Cokeley, AoP Dir. Of Office for New Evangelization.

RSVP: phillyevang.org/events.

All scheduled for 7 PM with Dates below:
Tues., 9/17 at St. Stanislaus, Lansdale
Tues., 9/24 at St. Catherine of Siena, Horsham
Mon. 10/7 at St. Andrew Olde Church, Newtown
