"Wonder, Desire, and Longing: Bearing the Image, Part I"
Join us for Mass, supper, a live-streamed talk, and time for fellowship!
This month’s Disciples’ Night is a potluck and will also include a supply drive for the Dorothy Day House.
6:00 Mass at Nativity (Confession available beginning at 5:40)
6:30 Dinner: Chili cook-off
7:00 Fr. Ryan Adorjan: "Wonder, Desire, and Longing" via live-stream
7:45 Discussion and social time
In part I of a three-part Theology of the Body series, Fr. Ryan will explore the basic questions of the human heart—Who am I? Why am I here? Where did I come from? Where am I going?—through the lens of wonder and human desire. We yearn for something greater than ourselves to take us outside of ourselves and into relationship and authentic communion with another—with creation, with other people, and ultimately with God. Fr. Ryan will employ the writing and thought of C.S. Lewis, Father Peter Cameron, and Father Luigi Giussani.
Father Ryan Adorjan is a priest for the Roman Catholic Diocese of Joliet-in-Illinois and a frequent speaker in his home diocese and around the country.. He is the parochial vicar of the Cathedral of Saint Raymond Nonnatus and Sacred Heart parish, both in Joliet.

This month’s Disciples’ Night will also include a supply drive for the Dorothy Day House of Hospitality in Moorhead. Please feel free to bring a contribution-clean blankets, new underwear, and new socks are top priorities. After that: white T-shirts, powdered laundry soap, dish soap, hygiene items (i.e. shampoo-conditioner, men's body wash, deodorant, shaving cream/razors), and gift cards (Sam's Club, Wal-Mart, Hornbacher's) would be welcomed! The Dorothy Day House of Hospitality in Moorhead serves the hungry and homeless in our area. Bring your items to donate to the February Disciples' Night meeting, and they will be delivered for you!
