At the #VisitationPlace Open House last night (BTW great turn out!) a few of us were talking about the popularity of the last Thursdays in September and October. We will postpone Mass and a Meal this week and move October's date also. We suggest Tuesdays for Oct and Nov. Dec date floats around already depending on schedules and holiday celebrations. I need to confirm with Father Charlie, but we are tentatively looking at Tuesday Oct 24 (we said 17 but I have a commitment at the Chaplaincy Centre that evening). See you at Theology on Tap Sept 28 and SDU Faith and Knowledge lecture Oct 26. ...
It seems we may be getting back into a routine of other sorts...where Theology on Tap is scheduled for the same nights as Mass and a Meal :-( ...
Theology on Tap: The Cultured Despisers of Religion
September 28, 2017, 6:30pm - September 28, 2017, 7:30pm
Ladies and Gentlemen,
All are invited to the first installment for our fall Theology on Tap series. The guest speaker for this even is none other than Dr. Joe Velaidum from the UPEI religious studies department, speaking on "The Cultured Despisers of Religion". Dr. Velaidum is well known for his popular Religious Studies online courses at the university, and is also involved with the new SDU Institute for Christianity and Culture. We are fortunate to have him speak with us at this event.
Doors open at 6:30, with the event starting at 7:00 sharp. While this is a 19+ event, peoples of all faiths, backgrounds, and otherwise are welcome to attend. Come! Have a beer, some food, and an inquisitive spirit!
A special thank you to the SDU Institute for Christianity and Culture for funding this presentation

True confession and then restoration of the whole ... August Mass and a Meal had no tea. Linda Martin boiled the kettle then asked where the tea bags were. Uh oh! Fixed with 240!
We set some dates - the last Thursday monthly - Sept 28 (my mother will be here), Oct 26 and Nov 30.
We tend to use Facebook to invite/advertise. Please use your networks to reach out to those who may be interested.
Previously I have said "Come when you can." I'm changing my message. Please do all that you can to be on time. I realize life happens and plans change. But for the most part, please be prompt. We begin at 6:00 with mass followed by supper.
I hope everyone is having a fantastic summer! As much as we hate to admit it, fall is quickly approaching, but the good news is, that means Mass & Meal will be starting back up! :) Lets get together this coming Thursday for our fall Kick-off. Looking forward to seeing you there! :)
On Friday, the Feast of Saint John Vianney, I was blessed to be able to attend Mass (I'm often working through the weekdays and unable to make it). I offered it for all of our priests. They need our prayers, so let's remember to pray for them daily.
"After their ordination, all priests have an indelible mark on their souls. This mark makes priests prime targets for the devil and his evil ways. Here are six prayers (from some of our favorite saints!) to say today to intercede for our shepherds here on earth."
