Take 5 for Lent

A Parish Lenten day of reflection based on Gaudete et Exsultate: On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World – the 2018 Apostolic Exhortation by Pope Francis. Take Five for Lent

In it, the Pope suggests how to effectively live out our baptismal call to be saints. He warns against traps that prevent living out this daily calling and encourages the faithful to live out the Beatitudes as a road map to holiness. We’ll begin with lunch and end with Vespers.  Presented by Al McCauley.
