      Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan

      A Holy Spirit Lenten Project
      Education is a Fundamental Right For Everyone! It Is The Catalyst For Dignity And Independence.
      The crisis in Sudan over the past several years was brought closer to the Rochester Catholic community through the spiritual intervention of Fr. John Lasuba, Associate Pastor at St. John the Evangelist Church. Having personally faced the tragedies of war in his hometown of Yei, South Sudan, he is living proof that although there is much darkness in the world, there is a God of hope and love who asks us to be witnesses in His name.
      Fr. John and a number of St. John parishioners have taken this spiritual invitation seriously and have formed a nonprofit organization - Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan. The primary purpose of this organization is to respond to the need for quality Catholic education in Yei. The goal of Seeds of Wisdom in South Sudan is to build a Catholic school campus on the 37 acres of land already donated by Fr. John’s people. Significant strides have been made over the past several months in achieving this goal. At this point, the organization is reaching out to the Catholic community with its fundraising efforts.

      Lenten Stations at Assisi Heights

      “Lenten Stations: Here – There - Now 
      Assisi Heights Spirituality Center
      Wednesday, April 16 at 7:00 PM
      This prayer service weaves the traditional Stations of the Cross into 14 current Social Justice topics; examples will include updates on poverty, education, health care, unemployment, and human trafficking, among others. You will recognize a global perspective and see how these issues impact us here locally in Rochester.

      Good Friday Prayer Vigil in St. Paul

      Are you looking for a powerful way to spend time in prayer with the Lord on Good Friday?
      A group of Christians from Rochester will be carpooling to the twin cities for part of the Good Friday Vigil held in front of Minnesota’s highest volume abortuary: the mega Planned Parenthood in St. Paul. Fifteen area pastors will lead in scripture and prayer, one each half hour throughout the day. A life-sized cross will be our only sign as we carry the cross of abortion. An area will be sectioned off for a family-safe day of prayer. Thousands of Christians join in prayer throughout the day at this vigil each Good Friday. You are invited to experience this day as never before!  
      We will be meeting in the north parking lot of Holy Spirit Catholic Church (the smaller parking lot to the right as you drive in) around 8:15 AM to figure out carpooling details and leaving at 8:30. We will get back between 2:30-3:00 PM. 
      For more information about this event in general, please visit the webpage (http://plam.org/programs/good-friday-prayer-vigil/).
      You are encouraged to CHECK THE WEATHER and dress accordingly, as this is an outdoor event. You do not have to bring anything to carry, but if you wish, you are welcome to bring a sign, a rosary, etc.
      Please contact Erin Weigel at (507) 358-1458 or at eaweigel@juno.com for more details about the event and carpooling plans.
