Bethany Ministry Workshop: “Love Your Neighbor As Yourself”

Saturday, April 18, 2015   ~   9:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

A ministry of caring is an important part of parish life. The gospel of St. Matthew 25:34-46 calls us to be more aware of the needs of the people around us and places great emphasis on the Works of Mercy. Join the Bethany Ministry staff for a mini-workshop on ways to reach out in love to those in our parish families who are homebound, bereaved, coping with health problems, or experiencing other difficulties.
