LENTEN FAMILY NIGHT AT ALL SAINTS PARISH

This inspirational presentation reflects on the Body of Christ and the Church in which we are called to BE bread for the World in imitation of Jesus. People are hungry for all sorts of things: food, fellowship, affection, reconciliation, and always, love.
Fr. Dominic Garramone, the “Bread Monk”, relates how different breads are symbolic of the great diversity of spiritual gifts and Christian witness and service. Fr. Dominic will present aspects of the bread-baking process as a metaphor for the spiritual life: mixing, kneading, rising, shaping, baking, blessing, and eating.
We will close by coming together as a family for refreshments to share different kinds of breads, discuss what we learned about ourselves, and how we fit into the “Bread of the Community”, this Body of Christ at All Saints! Butter, honey, jams, cream cheese, and other items will be provided to enjoy with the breads we will share.
We will also have many of the fine books written by Fr. Dominic available for sale after the presentation.
