Social Justice Formation

Who is my Neighbor?

Meeting the second Monday of each monthdoors
September 11, 2017 through March 12, 2018
6 to 8:30 p.m.
Jesus engaged everyone around him, from fishermen to lepers, from the Samaritan Woman to the Syro-Phoenician, from tax collectors to the poor widow. When asked, “Who is my neighbor?” Jesus offered a parable, and then his own question: “Now who would you say was a neighbor…?”

As Christians we are formed to be and bring the Word to life in our world. Who Is My Neighbor? invites us to listen to the stories of those who might not usually cross our paths, who seem different from us, but who have engaged in their own learning and discerning to love and care for the other.

Each session will include a light supper, a guest speaker, Lectio Divina, reflection and shared conversation. The purpose is simple: to be formed to see with new eyes, as we learn, pray, discern and live out our call to be a neighbor.

Cost: $125.00 includes 7 sessions with light supper
Please register by August 31
