Director's Message

April 2017

Dear Friends,

The Lenten season is in full swing as we welcome April. Our free online non-credit course for Lent is open to the public … feel free to join, read, discuss, and meditate. You work at your own pace so there is no timeline. Also this month we celebrate Saint John Paul II with the annual memorial event featuring the Saint John Bible experience. 

With Holy Week beginning on April 9, let us reflect on the meaning of Lent and the message to help one another. This is what Jesus teaches us. The first sign of this love "without end" (Jn 13:1) is the washing of the feet. "The Lord and Master" (Jn 13:14) stoops to his disciples' feet, as only servants would have done. He shows us by example that we need to allow his love to reach us, a love which bends down to us; we cannot do any less, we cannot love without letting ourselves be loved by him first, without experiencing his surprising tenderness and without accepting that true love consists in concrete service.

As always, we invite you to attend any of our events and join in the many discussions. And we invite you to keep up-to-date by following us on FacebookTwitterYouTubeInstagramLinkedIn, or sign up for our E-newsletter. We thank you for your continued support.

God Bless and Be Well.

"A specific priority is the need to examine the predominant values and norms of modern society and culture in a Christian perspective, and the responsibility to try to communicate to society those ethical and religious principles which give full meaning to human life."

- Pope John Paul II
