General Announcements

The Cup of Life Day of Reflection - June 22
Cedarbrake Catholic Retreat Center, in Belton, is offering a Day of Reflection on Wednesday, June 22 nd , 9:00am-2:30pm.  "Anyone thirsting for a more intimate life of prayer will find a wellspring of enrichment in The Cup of Life authored by Sister Joyce Rupp. The ordinary cup that we use each day can serve as a vessel that connects us with daily life. The cup is filled with symbolism: the broken cup, the chipped cup, the empty cup and the blessing cup. All serve as reminders that God uses the ordinary things to connect us to the extraordinary. Join us as we explore our own cup of life. Cost is $35 and includes lunch."  To find out more or to register, visit www.cedarbrake.org or call (25) 780-2436.
