St. John's Adult Discussion Group 

Our next meeting will be held

in Mercy Hall

Friday, February 24th  7pm

Father Gould will lead our next discussion as we begin "Silence" by the Japanese author Shusaku Endo. It is a book Father John McCloskey recommends that every Catholic read. In the words of the translator, Endo’s work is about “problems of faith and God, of sin and betrayal, of martyrdom and apostasy.” It is also about another issue that is not unique to Japan, namely, does survival of Christianity in any given culture depend on its adapting itself to that culture?

Copies of the book should be available as soon as Wednesday, January 4. The suggested donation for each book is $10.00.

We will be discussing the first five chapters of the book, which end on p. 107.

For a copy of the new book or for further  information, please email jvolpe@infionline.net
or
call 540-272-0742.

The Arlington Diocese Office of Vocations presents

Vocations

Discernment:

"To know your vocation: ask God in prayer; ask one's spiritual director; ask oneself, knowing one's own inclinations."

 - St. Gianna Molla

 

Click on the logos to visit the Diocesan Vocational pages.

"Quo Vadis" means "Where are you going?" and its members are young men in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship and personal holiness to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be.

''FIAT' is a Latin word for 'Let it be done'. It was Mary's response to the angel Gabriel when she was asked to become the mother of Jesus. 'Let it be done unto me according to Your Will' refers to Mary's 'Yes' to God. The members of FIAT are young women in high school who desire to grow in faithful discipleship by modeling their personal holiness on that of our Lady. By doing so they hope to be better able to discover their own vocation invitation from our Lord, whatever that might be and make their own "fiat" or "yes" to Him.
