Join us for a morning of reflection and presentation by Fr. James Alison. He'll be presenting a talk on How Forgiveness and a New Creation come together.
Fr. James' has worked to bring the great French thinker René Girard to a wider public. In addition, he is known for his pastoral outreach to the marginalized, especially the LGBTQ community. Fr. James said: "For God there are no "outsiders", which means that any mechanism for the creation of "outsiders" is automatically and simply a mechanism of human violence, and that's that."Fr. James will be at St. Thomas More on the morning of Saturday, March 25th, the feast of the Annunciation. The morning will begin at 8:30 AM with the presentation starting at 9:00 AM. There will be some quiet time for reflection and sharing. The morning will conclude with Mass.
