PARISHIONER DAY OF RECOLLECTION
St. Callistus offers another great growth experience as speaker Fr. John Mark Ettensohn, OMI, guides us on How to Face Fear with God's Help - a topic so pertinent for our times. Attending IN-PERSON is STRONGLY ENCOURAGED, as there will be group activities involved in the Hall that cannot be live-streamed. These activities will meaningfully enhance the benefits derived from this event.
Parishioners, please note:
All are welcome inside, no Vaccinated Card or proof of COVID test within 72 hours need to sit in the pews with masks.
Outdoor mask optional.
Food and beverage are offered during lunch break for those who RSVP.
Attendees are welcome to bring snacks as supplement.
Livestream links to Facebook and Zoom are found in our saintcallistus.org/mass web page. Scroll down past the Mass Intention information on the day of the event. Please be aware that livetreaming the event gives much less benefit than in-person because of group discussions.
RSVP for Flocknote users are extended to Friday, November 26, 12:00 p.m. RSVP through the office ends Wednesday, November 24, 12:00 p.m. due to office closure during Thanksgiving holiday.
