Leaven for the World: In this motivational presentation, Sean Bryan – the Papal Ninja – and Fr. Michael Sweeney, OP offer foundational insights into understanding the universal call to holiness. They will pull from Scripture, Tradition, and personal experience to articulate how to be a true disciple, and how to take joy in walking with our Lord throughout the day, seeing with his eyes and acting in his place in the world. The session will conclude with a “no-holds-barred” question and answer session, where you can ask about anything.

When and where: Feb. 7, 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., St. Thomas Acquinas Catholic Church, 13720 W. Thomas Road, Avondale
