This Week at Holy Family

SUNDAY, JULY 29 TENTH SUNDAY AFTER PENTECOST Our readings for the day will be: 2 Sam 11:1-15, Ps 14, Eph 3:14-21, JN 6:1-21.

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 29 BOOK STUDY: “THE BOOK OF JOY: Lasting Happiness in a Changing World”, by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Archbishop Desmond Tutu with Douglas Abrams. Learn how to find joy in the face of inevitable suffering from two of the world’s modern day spiritual giants. Written with humility and humor, you may laugh and cry. Bring a journal, as we will also do a written reflection or two. We will meet at church and start promptly at 6:30 p.m., ending at 8 p.m. Order your own book from a local bookseller or Amazon.com. You might even find a copy in the library or at Goodwill. If you are coming straight from work, feel free to bring your own dinner or snacks.

DIOCESAN WOMEN’S RETREAT: Boldly Forward: Bible Women Inspire Our Lives August 17-18 (5 p.m. Friday to 4 p.m. Saturday) at the Bosque Center, ABQ. Who are Mary the mother of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judith, Ruth and Esther? What inspiration can they offer women of faith? Carpools from Santa Fe are planned. Registration is $50, including three meals. Some half scholarships are available.  Contact Cindy Davis at cdavis@cynthiadavisauthor.com. Flyers with more information are available on the bulletin board in the hallway.

PRAYER SQUARES The Prayer Squares group meets the second Wednesday of each month to knit and crochet squares, which are then sewn into blankets/shawls. We meet at church from 6:30/7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. No experience is necessary and yarn, hooks and needles are supplied. Please join us August 8 for fun, fellowship and treats.
