“Beyond Sunday: Becoming a 24/7 Catholic”
*March 21, 2019 – Joint Event with Faith and Ale
Countless Catholics settle for a life of faith that begins and ends with the obligatory Sunday Mass. While essential, giving just one hour of our lives to God a week can never satisfy our deep longing for a purposeful, joy-filled life. Join us on March 21, 2019 at St. John XXIII Catholic Church at 7 pm to hear nationally acclaimed author, speaker and Catholic talk show host Teresa Tomeo speak on Beyond Sunday: Becoming a 24/7 Catholic. Based upon her latest best-selling book, motivational speaker Tomeo gets real about what it takes to live as a Catholic every day of the week and offers practical tips for seekers in any stage of faith.
