To help us further reflect on Father Solanus, our parish is honored to have special guest preacher next Sunday November 19: Father Roger Landry. Father Landry is an internationally noted speaker and writer. He will preach our November 19 Sunday Masses at 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:45am, and 12:30pm. Next Sunday will be the first ever World Day of the Poor, instituted by Pope Francis. It is indeed a movement of the Holy Spirit that this day fall on the very weekend that Father Solanus will be beatified. Father Landry will interweave the themes of Father Solanus and serving the poor.
Father Landry currently works for the Holy See’s Permanent Observer Mission to the United Nations. He writes for many Catholic publications and appears often on various Catholic radio and television programs. He regularly leads pilgrimages to Rome, the Holy Land, Christian Europe and other sacred destinations and preaches several retreats a year for priests, seminarians, religious and lay faithful. Invite a friend to join you at these Masses to be inspired and renewed.
