General Announcements 

Dynamic Catholic Institute’s ‘The Four Signs’ at St. Michael Church on Mar. 12

The Dynamic Catholic Institute’s “The Four Signs” presentation will be held at St. Michael Church, 250 High St., in Brookville, from 9 a.m.-1:30 p.m. on March 12. The presentation will be led by Father Bob Sherry and Jonathan Fanning.

“The Four Signs” is based on Matthew Kelly’s book of the same title. The presentation is designed to help participants master four life-changing habits: daily prayer, daily spiritual reading, donating 1 percent more of their income in the current year, and doing one thing each week to intentionally share God’s message. Each attendee will also leave the event with their own personal plan to help them become the best version of themselves.

While tickets are $20, which covers the cost of materials each participant receives, the presentation and speakers are offered by Dynamic Catholic at no charge to the parish. Participants will be invited to consider helping Dynamic Catholic create dynamic Catholics by joining The Ambassador’s Club at dynamiccatholic.com/give/ambassador-club.

For more information or to register, call 859-980-7900 or log on to www.DynamicCatholic.com/Brookville.

 

More participants needed in 40 Days for Life in Bloomington and Indianapolis

The 40 Days for Life campaign to end abortion by peacefully praying before abortion centers during Lent is no small feat. Over the 40 days, there will be a total of 450 hours devoted to prayer.

Currently, Indianapolis has at least one person committed to 291 of those 450 hours, and Bloomington has 161 hours committed. More volunteers would help bring the campaign to its fullest potential and biggest impact for our communities.

This is especially true for slots on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Indianapolis, and on Saturdays and Sundays in Bloomington.

If you or your organization would like to sponsor an open slot of time on a certain day(s), it would be greatly appreciated. This can be done by logging on to 40daysindy.org for Indianapolis or 40daysforlife.com/local-campaigns/Bloomington for Bloomington.

 

Retrouvaille weekend for healthier marriages set for Feb. 26-28 in Indy

A Retrouvaille weekend retreat designed to help unhappy marriages will be offered at Our Lady of Fatima Retreat House, 5353 E. 56th St., in Indianapolis, on Feb. 26-28.

Retrouvaille is designed to help troubled marriages regain their health. It helps spouses uncover or re-awaken the love, trust and commitment that originally brought them together. The program is successful in saving hurting marriages, even bringing reconciliation to couples who have already separated or divorced.

During the weekend, couples learn tools to rebuild their lives together in a new and positive way, and in complete privacy.

Registration for the retreat is $100. However, no couple is ever turned away for financial reasons.

Registration is preferred by Feb. 20, but will still be accepted after that date.

The next Retrouvaille weekend is scheduled for Aug. 5-7 at Fatima Retreat House.

For more information or to register, log on to www.retroindy.com, call 317-489-6811 or email info@retroindy.com.
