Renewal through Outreach
St. Veronica Gives Back! (March 5-12, 2017)
Go directly to the sign up genius page by clicking on the blue headline.
It has all the information about each service opportunity that week.
From March 5 through March 12, all parishioners are invited to join together in a unique renewal opportunity.
Renewal is meant to stir the flame of the Holy Spirit in all of us, empowering us to live, teach and proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others with new energy and enthusiasm. The opportunity to practice this Renewal through active involvement with those disadvantaged in our neighborhoods and community is an exciting step for St. Veronica.
How will it work?
Parishioners will come together on Sunday, March 5 to pray and reflect on the call to service in our community. Then we will be sent forth to help at one of several social service agencies in the Cincinnati area on a day the following week. Finally, we will come back together the following Sunday, March 12, to share and reflect more deeply on the encounters we’ve had and how we can bring that spirit with us beyond the week.
Who can participate?
Families, individuals, groups and parishioners of all ages are invited to participate and grow together as a parish. The outreach opportunities will all be tailored to meet the wide range of needs and abilities in our parish. SEE THE LINK BY CLICKING ON THE HEADLINE
