ADVENT: Waiting for God
An Evening of Spiritual Reading and Poetry
December 12 @ 7pm at St. Julia Parish Hall
Join us for an Advent evening of Spiritual Reading, Poetry and discussion, led by Father Tom Fitzpatrick, SJ, from Weston’s Campion Center.
Father Tom’s writing reveals a lifelong spiritual journey with God. He uses humor and images of nature, with simple and direct language, to make God real for us.
Father Tom has been a Jesuit for 64 years and a priest for 51. He founded the Jesuit Center in Amman, Jordan, and remained as director for 14 years. Father Tom also served as director of the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Jerusalem for 10 years, and taught for more than 10 years at Fairfield University.
Father Tom has written numerous articles which have appeared in periodicals in the United States, Jordan, and Jamaica. His play, The Gentle Whisper of Trees, premiered in December 2019.
Light refreshments will follow the presentation. Please reach out to Deacon Phil at the Parish Office so we can get an approximate headcount of attendees.
