The 7 Gifts and 12 Fruits of the Holy Spirit
We know that at some point Fr. Juan will ask us again in one of his homilies, "Come on, everybody. Tell me what are the Gifts of the Holy Spirit?" And of course we'll be trying to remember what we learned when we were confirmed. Well now we can be prepared!
Let's come together for a discussion on the 7 Gifts of the Holy Spirit placed in our souls and why (hint: to safeguard the Theological Virtues). We'll also discuss the Fruits of the Holy Spirit, which are to be visible in Christians as signs that the Holy Spirit dwells within us - "as a tree is known by its fruits". Don't be caught again without an answer!
Join us on Saturday October 28, 9:00-11:30 in the St. Thomas Room. All are welcome!
