St. Rita’s Prelenten Mission
February 5, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - February 7, 2018 @ 7:00 pm
Our Mission Preacher will be Fr. Albert Haase, OFM, a Franciscan ordained in 1983. Fr. Albert is a popular preacher, teacher, spiritual director and radio personality. A former missionary to mainland China for over eleven years, he is the author of nine books on popular spirituality and the presenter on four bestselling DVDs. He has trained spiritual directors for ten years and resides in Texas. You may visit his website at www.AlbertOFM.org
Over 3 nights, Fr. Albert Haase, OFM, will lead us in a parish mission entitled SIGNED AND SEALED WITH THE CROSS. As early as the 3rd century, Christians started to sign themselves with a cross. Eighteen centuries later, we continue the practice of making the sign of the cross when we start to pray, when we celebrate the sacraments, and when we enter a church. Done so often and usually out of habit, has this ancient gesture lost its meaning for us? We will explore the identity of our God proclaimed in the ancient gesture of being signed with a cross. We will also explore the challenges and responsibilities we accept when we seal our lives with the sign of our salvation.
Make plans for three wonderful nights of spiritual growth!
