Finding the Hope and Joy
November 21, 2020 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm
Together, let us open our hearts in love and hope as we wait the celebration of our precious Jesus’ birth. Although we can’t gather in person for this event, we can gather spiritually as sisters in Christ and in our League.
Therese Lee, the organizer of the event, is a parishioner at Our Lady of Lourdes in Waterloo. She has been organizing the WHY@Breakfast presentations since 2010. This year, the series will be offered online via ZOOM, due to COVID. It is a FREE event and all fellow Catholics are invited to attend. The purpose of the series is to help provide meaningful support as we prepare for the coming of the Advent season. Therese writes: “By November 21st, we would have eight months of pandemic life! Some of us might have experienced struggles in faith, difficulties in grieving, decline in mental health, loss of the sense of real connection with the community, etc. On November 21st, Father Con plans to help us align our Hope and Joy with our honest experience during this difficult time. Elisa’s dramatization will pass on the wisdom of our great church doctor St. Teresa of Avila to focus on the Hope of all Christians.” “Fr. Con probably needs no introduction in our diocese. Elisa Lollino is an actress and playwright. She has been featured on Catholic Register and performed at school board events, parishes, and Catholic conferences. She is going to be so convincing as St. Teresa on November 21st.”
You may register online or by email (email to firstname.lastname@example.org). Once you have registered, you will be sent two ZOOM links – one for the 9:30 AM morning session and one for the 2 PM afternoon session. The time between sessions is meant for your own time of reflection and lunch. The afternoon session will end by 3 PM.
