Global Outreach Dinner

10-14-2018Weekly Bulletin LetterFr. Robert Seraph Aliunzi, AJ

In African Culture, and indeed in many cultures, sharing a meal signifies an intimate bond and shared common values. Offering food, no matter how plain and simple, to a stranger is part of basic African hospitality. Meals shared together create and recreate families, friendships, and business relations. Assuring social relationships through food can happen both around the evening fires or dinner table at home. Feasts, where those who don’t often eat together can meet up, is a great opportunity for strengthening bonds of friendship and for forgiving wrongs.


Life is Precious: As Good Stewards, We Must Respect It!

The little white crosses you see in our courtyard during this time should remind us, as stewards, of the horrors of abortion. In fact, each cross you see represents 3 babies per month lost to abortion in the state of Arizona.
