Festival of Praise
November 10, 2018
ACCEPTING GOD'S LOVE AND MERCY
We may often think we are not good enough to deserve God’s love and mercy. In reality we can never do anything in life for us to “deserve” God’s love and Mercy. We need to accept the fact that God has painfully paid the price for us with the death of His Son, Jesus. All we have to do is accept it.
Our guest speaker and presider will be Father Joe Freedy currently Parochial Vicar at Holy Child and St. Barbara Parishes in the Bridgeville area. Father Joe has been described as a contemporary speaker, in touch with the moment, someone who understands real life, is reflective and also contemplative. At our November’s service Father Joe’s teaching will surely bring a new perspective to how we learn to accept Gods love and mercy.
In addition to Father Freedy teaching, the service includes adoration of the Blessed Sacrament ending with benediction. An open invitation is extended to you to join with us in celebrating the love of Jesus.
You are encouraged to visit the Festival of Praise page in the Holy Apostles Parish website. There you will find many pictures and videos of previous services. Our Praise Band Repertoire now includes more than forty beautiful songs and continues to grow monthly. Many of these songs can viewed and listened to on You Tube as performed by the recording artist.
ALL ARE WELCOME TO ATTEND!
There is more information on the Festival of Praise webpage. HERE
