Local Event: Fr. Vince's Teaching of Mary in the Family

Father Vince Crowing Our Lady

. . . PEACE in the Family

According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “the Christian family is a communion of persons, a sign and image of the communion of the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit.”  However, our families are under increased attacks in today’s society to include divorces, substance abuse, falling from the faith, etc.  When our families are damaged, our relationship with God also suffers.  Our families need help and they can find it through the intercession of the Blessed Mother Mary and the Sacraments.  She was the “Rock” of the most perfect family, the Holy Family, and we can look to her so that our families can be more like the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph.  Fr. Vince Inghilterra, Associate Director of the Priestly Discernment Program at Franciscan University at Steubenville, Ohio, will share how you can start the conversion in you and your family’s life… to bring God’s love, peace and joy into your family through the intercession of the Blessed Mother and how vital her role is in the family.
