Advent

 

It is the beautiful task of Advent to awaken in all of us memories of goodness and thus to open doors of hope.

This Advent, our Pax Christi group gathered together to share a meal and hopefully undertake the beautiful Advent task of which Pope Benedict XVI speaks, to open doors of hope.  We wrote and sent cards to some of the men on Alabama’s death row.  They await an uncertain fate in cramped cells and harsh conditions, but hopefully we can be a reminder of God’s Love, that Jesus came for us all.

Thank Goodness I’m Fed

This week we have been participating in a program coordinated by Greater Birmingham Ministries,  TGIF – Thank Goodness I’m Fed!  GBM provides the funds and we shop, pack, and deliver lunches for low-income children in the Birmingham area who might be missing meals on account of being out of school for the summer.

It has been a great opportunity for us to come together to serve our community!
