Friends of Fr. Augustus Tolton
February 16 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm
We welcome Franciscan Fr. Derran Combs from our neighboring church, St. Peter’s on Madison Street, to our next meeting at 12:00 p.m. in the rectory on Sunday, February 16th. The title of his presentation is ‘Tolton’s Church: The Beloved Community’.
Fr. Derran will reflect upon Tolton’s attitude and stance on the Church, seeing what it ‘could be’. He will also compare Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. with Tolton, acknowledging the similarities that both had hope of a better and more inclusive Church.
Also mark your calendar for Wednesday evening, March 11th, when our Faith Formation Commission has invited Bishop Perry to speak about the life of Fr. Tolton and the cause for his canonization.
