Rediscover: speakers series kicks off Feb. 3

| January 29, 2014 | 0 Comments

The Rediscover: faith 2014 Speakers Series begins Monday, Feb. 3, with “Why Pray” at Holy Name of Jesus in Wayzata. St. John Neumann in Eagan hosts the session Feb. 4.

Father Bill Baer of Transfiguration in Oakdale will present the “Why Pray” talks.

The Archdiocese of St. Paul and Minneapolis’ Rediscover: initiative launched in December 2012 as a way for Catholics to strengthen their faith lives and invite others to know and love Jesus and his Church more deeply. Rediscover: also includes a prayer experience, “Cor Jesu,” book clubs and an archdiocesan-wide celebration in October.

The speakers series’ “How to Pray” session will be Feb. 10 at Holy Name of Jesus, and Feb. 11 at St. John Neumann with Pat and Kenna Millea presenting.

“We will share our experiences of the great ‘both/and’ of prayer through the Church — prayer that is both traditional and new, communal and personal, loud and silent, habitual and emotional,” Pat Millea said. “We have the relationship with God that we do because others have openly encouraged us, answered our questions and steered us toward God. If there is the possibility that God can use us and our story to bring others closer to him, then we are ready and willing.”

All Rediscover: faith 2014 Speakers Series talks are free, begin at 7 p.m. and run 90 minutes, including hospitality time.
