Easter People

Posted: 3/31/2017

For many in the parish, the annual Easter People presentations provide two of the spiritual highlights of the entire year.

This year, we will be blessed to welcome two beloved Holy Comforter parishioners as our Easter People: on Sunday, April 30, Eric Beatty will present his reflection on his journey of faith to the present; and on Sunday, May 7, Emily Voit will offer her thoughts on her spiritual path, perhaps including a presentation on her pilgrimage last year to the shrine of Santiago de Compostela in Spain. Both of these events will take place during the formation hour at 10:00 a.m., in the Great Room.

For those not familiar with the Easter People tradition: since 1992, different members of Holy Comforter-representing a wide range of experiences, ages, and backgrounds-have discussed their lives of faith at the Adult Forum during the Easter season. We have Nancy Lovely to thank for initiating this marvelous practice and coordinating it for many years. Most years, we have been blessed by two such reflections, as will be the case this year. Easter People is perennially one of the most popular and potent events in our parish life, so please put these dates on your calendars now. It is hard to imagine two more wonderful presenters!
