Divine Mercy Celebration
Sunday April 8th, 1:30-6:30pm

"You and yours are invited to a traditional 
'cordero al asador' goat spit roast. 

This year we've expanded the liturgy!  We'll gather at 1:30pm to watch the final stages of the roast, taking it off the fire at 2 to rest while we enter the sanctuary to begin a Holy Hour with Exposition and Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament.  We'll follow with our traditional Divine Mercy Chaplet with a Benediction to follow.  

Then we'll carve the meat at 4pm and serve the meal shortly thereafter.  We'll play field games and enjoy the graces of the day until 6:30 or so.  We'll be roasting all day; come when you can, morning, noon or evening.

Meat and flatbread will be provided.  Appetizers, side-dishes, desserts and drinks will be potluck style, so bring your favorite dish.  Hopefully weather will permit outdoor play of all kinds.
All are welcome.  Bring your friends and family and celebrate this 2nd Sunday of Easter with us.

Have you enjoyed the roast in previous years? If so, we'd appreciate volunteers for helping to make it happen. We've got some kitchen setup, serving and cleanup duties that necessitate about 10 people, in about 1.5 hour-long shifts. 

Signups will be in vestibule starting this Sunday.  Questions can go to Lauren Sheard at 206-463-6328.  Thanks for considering!

In this book, Schönborn, the Catholic archbishop of Vienna, develops a theology of creation that deals with evolution and contends that science and Christian faith are not at odds.
