Fat Tuesday Food and Fellowship

Fat Tuesday, also known as Shrove Tuesday, is the last day before Lent begins. 
In some traditions it is marked by a Mardi Gras celebration and a lite dinner! 

Join us at St. Robert Bellarmine Church for our own Mary, Gate of Heaven Parish style of Mardi Gras!  
We will be serving soups, sandwiches and desserts on Tuesday, February 13, 5:30 p.m.

We are looking for people who are willing to make a crockpot of soup, sandwiches, 
or a dessert to help with this event. 

Please call Barbara Carlson @ 860-874-4713

Lectio Divina Introductory Workshop

Reading and praying Scripture is sacramental. It fills us with grace and conforms us to Christ. Jesus gave his life proclaiming the Word and explaining Scripture before revealing the Word by offering his body and blood. Just as the Lord incarnate made his dwelling place among us, our hearts are restless until we make our dwelling place in his Word. This is the what the Holy Spirit teachs us in lectio divina. Come and learn.

Where and when: St. Robert Hall - February 17, 2018 - 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

By: Commissioned Presenters of Contemplative Outreach:
Mike Smoolca and Nancy Stimac

Free will offering. Light breakfast available at 9:30 a.m. check-in.
