Pallottine Community Apostle Outreach
“Love Is Our Mission: The Family Fully Alive”
Our Lady of Grace School has built its cornerstone with the Pallottine benefactors since 1964. It is because of their bold vision our school has succeeded and our children have grown in a community filled with faith.
In 2013, Pope Francis declared that a Year of Consecrated Life (YCL) be celebrated throughout the world. YCL will begin on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 2014. It will close on the World Day of Consecrated Life, February 2, 2016.
We would like to invite any family from Our Lady of Grace School/Parish to participate in a family mass night in your home. Any family who wishes to have mass celebrated in your home please contact Father Peter at the rectory. With Sister Jyothi, Father Peter will prepare a liturgy and rosary. You can invite family and friends or request a private mass.
Our mission is to prepare families for WMOF which was conceived by Saint Pope John Paul II in 1992 to look at strengthening the sacred bonds of the family unit across the globe. The first WMOF took place in Rome in 1994, the International Year of the Family.
Every three years since 1994, families from all over the world are invited by the Holy Father to attend this global gathering. At the conference, families share their thoughts, dialogue and prayers, working together to grow as individuals and family units. Families can participate in discussion groups on the Christian family’s role in the church and society led by many distinguished speakers.
This year the conference will be celebrated in Philadelphia. You can read more information on this by visiting the following website: www.worldmeeting2015.org
I encourage you to participate and create memorable experiences with your family!
Mrs. Filomena Ranaudo-D’Amico
