In our Catholic lives, we are asked to go on pilgrimages. Yet, typically, we put off making a pilgrimage until our 50's, 60's, and 70's because pilgrimages are no fun. However, what if there was a pilgrimage that did not resemble a pilgrimage? Join Theology and a Pub on Sept. 9th in its' new location at Claddagh Pub at 8745 Sancus Blvd. at 7 p.m. for a talk with Father Larry Rice on his upcoming pilgrimage to Camino next March. The admission is free and the doors open at for the happy hour. Food and drink can be purchased before the talk. For more information or directions, go to www.theologyandapub.org."

To inquire about purchasing tickets or event sponsorship, please contact Merry Ralston at 614-857-1236 or email@example.com
The office will be closed on Labor Day, Monday, Sept. 7th. Normal hours will resume on Tuesday, Sept. 8th. Have a safe and enjoyable Labor Day weekend.
As our US Bishops wrote in their document, A Jubilee for Workers: Challenges and Opportunities for the New Millennium: “It is worth remembering on Labor Day… that a person is more valuable for what she or he is than for what they have, for the work they do rather than for what they possess. We must join together… to build a society that respects each person and their work.” The Marriage and Family Life Office encourages you to talk with your children about how work gives witness to our faith, how each of us can make the world a better place by who we are and what we do, and how all that we do can manifest the love of God. Spend some time reflecting on how you bring holiness and wholeness to the work you do.
Lord, let our work be a source of joy to our family and a song of praise to you. Amen.
