Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Our Lady Of Mercy - "Spiritual Hours"

Our Lady of Mercy - "Spiritual Hours"

Thursdays 6:00 pm- 7:15 pm (Chapel)

The "Spiritual Hours" are much more than a holy hour. These unique gatherings were inspired by Blessed Mother Theresa who stated that the fruit from the Spiritual Hours could not only change families and society, but would change the world.

Each nine weeks a new theme is offered that utilizes education "Catechesis," prayer, devotion, and brief discussions.

We are taught each week through the use of DVD's by men and women such a Blessed Mother Theresa, Pope John Paul II, and Cardinal Arinze, not to mention numerous other inspiring and holy leaders of the faith.

These gatherings are designed to educate us in the faith, provide spiritual nourishment, and help direct our lives through connection with the deep Traditions of our faith, Catholic Dogma, and the Magisterium of the church.

So who would benefit from such "Spiritual Hours"?

Anyone with a desire for greater fulfillment in life, a yearning for a closer relationship with Christ, and a  hunger to experience the richness of Catholic Tradition.

Do I have to attend all nine weeks?

No, although each nine week session (Novena) has a common theme, each week is delivered as a unique and stand alone complete session.

Is there any commitment?

No, Only a commitment between you a Christ.

Who Leads / Guides these Gatherings?

Deacon Pat and Liz Kearns
