Virgin Mary, Bishop of Rome, Hospitality to Strangers
In January, we focus on blessings and the legacy of the Protestant Reformation. In Lent, we study the Virgin Mary and Pope Francis, our “Bishop of Rome.” We will also pray with Christian art. In Easter, we practice our Baptismal promise of “respecting the dignity of every human being” by expanding our knowledge of the Muslim community and learning about El Hogar. Join us on Sunday at 9am in Room 2. —The Rev. Margaret K. Schwarzer
