Parish Mission: “That One Thing”

Wed, 10/23/2019 - 19:00

“THAT ONE THING” – Parish Mission at St. Anne, Saskatoon – Mike Gormley will be visiting Saint Anne’s Catholic Church in Saskatoon all the way from Houston, Texas, to deliver a parish mission on Oct. 22, 23, and 24, starting at 7:00 p.m. each evening.

Michael Gormley is the producer and cohost of Catholic podcasts “Catching Foxes” and “Every Knee Shall Bow”. He holds a Master of Arts in Theology and Christian Ministry from Franciscan University of Steubenville. He currently serves as the Coordinator of Evangelization at St. Anthony of Padua Parish, a Catholic megachurch in Texas.

Talk One will bring us into confrontation with false images of God the Father, in particular, that thing we call “Catholic guilt.” Rooted and grounded in the endless mercy of God from the first talk, the second talk will lead us into repentance by asking one question: What is that one thing that is keeping you from a better relationship with God. The final talk hones in on two things: how to stay free of that one thing, and how to take the faith to the next level.

For more information on the parish mission visit saintannes.ca/mission.
