Happy (Catholic) New Year!

August 23, 2019


November 27th, 2016 marks the start of a NEW liturgical year on the Catholic Calendar!  In the “spirit” of this newness I am ORGANIZING our SPSE inventory and PLANNING events for 2017.

2017 marks the 100th ANNIVERSARY of Mary’s appearances in Fatima, Portugal.  Events are planned around the world, and I propose we make it a point to “hit the streets” on the 13th of May, June, July, August 19th*, and September 13th and October 13th — even for just an hour or so on the sidewalks.

We will also visit the “usual” festivalsHomewood’s Health & Safety DayOLS 4th of July FestivalHomewood’s Back-to-School BashOur Lady of Lourdes Labor Day FestivalHoly Infant of Prague’s OktoberfestHomewood’s “Howl-O’Scream” John Carroll HS football games, and Homewood’s Christmas Parade.  We may add Homewood’s Easter Egg Hunt (with our own eggs filled with TRUE treasures :-)) and We Love Homewood Day.  NOTE: most of these links have 2016 info as 2017 dates have not yet been set.  And I’m eager to see where else the Holy Spirit guides us in 2017.

Any suggestions? Let me know!

In His Peace,

Teresa

*The mayor of Ourém kidnapped the children and they missed the August 13th date, but many persons who had gathered that day witnessed supernatural phenomena.  The children did her on the 19th.
