November 18th: FOR PRISON VOLUNTEERS & THOSE INTERESTED IN VOLUNTEERING Stacy Golden, Coordinator of Pastoral Care for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, will give a presentation on prison ministry titled, “No one is beyond the reach of God’s mercy,” Pope Francis, on November 18, 2017 from 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. (Mass at 8:30 a.m.) at St. Lawrence Martyr Church, 7850 Parkside Blvd., Hanover, MD. Many prisoners suffer from past regrets that extend beyond their incarcerations such as abortion. We can show God’s mercy and forgiveness by recognizing the signs of post-abortion stress in men and women and provide healing. “Transforming Your Story” (Wendy Giancola) is a bible study used to aid in healing after abortion and can be integrated into prison ministry. Encountering Christ transforms lives so we will explore the Alpha course as a means for evangelization through prison ministry. Assisted by a key Alpha volunteer, Nicole Costello, we will give you a glimpse into running this program in prisons to bring men and women into relationship. Contact Chris Mahaley 410-547-5406.

November 25th: Beatification of Father Solanus Casey, OFM Cap. Mass of Thanksgiving at St. Ambrose Church Sunday, Nov. 26th, 10am. On May 4, 2017 Pope Francis announced that Father Solanus Casey will be elevated to Blessed in the Roman Catholic Church, which is the final step before sainthood. A member of the CapuchinFranciscan Order, Father Solanus Casey was born November 25, 1870 and died July 31, 1957. Father Solanus entered the Capuchin Franciscan Order in 1897 and was ordained a priest in 1904. Due to his inability to fully complete all academic requirements for priesthood, he was never permitted to preach, hear confessions or fulfill the usual pastoral work of Catholic priests. Instead, he was given the humble task of answering the door and talking to the many people who came to the Capuchin friaries in New York and Detroit where he was assigned. For additional information, call Father Paul Zaborowski, OFM Cap. St. Ambrose Parish @ 410.367.9918 email@example.com
