MASSES

 

Mass Honoring Couples Celebrating 50th and 60th Anniversaries in 2022

The Archdiocese of Atlanta would like to honor couples married in 1972 and 1962 with an invitation to a Golden/Diamond Wedding Anniversary Mass on Saturday, August 13, at 12pm at St. Brigid Catholic Church. A light reception will follow the mass for the anniversary couples and their families. Space is limited. Please go to http://tiny.cc/anniversarymass to RSVP for this event and for additional information. 

EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS

 

25th Eucharistic Congress Is Coming On June 17-18, 2022.

The Archdiocese of Atlanta’s celebration of the 25th Eucharistic Congress is welcome news to the thousands who have experienced these joyful events since 1996.  This year we will mark the inauguration of our Eucharistic Revival in the archdiocese.  With the addition of three new tracks, a family track, a Burmese track, and a social justice track we anticipate an even more exciting event.  

Focusing on the way that our Encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist both encourages and empowers us to share the love of Christ with others, speakers in all tracks will be giving their own personal witness of the power of this Encounter.  

Exhibits along the main concourse will highlight ways that people can engage in a more intentional way by getting directly involved in a social justice ministry.  

 

We look forward to being together once again this June as we celebrate the Source and Summit of our faith, Jesus, Real and Present in the Eucharist!

SPEAKERS

Restorative Justice in the Criminal Legal System Lunch Presentation

A primary point of departure in Catholic social doctrine is the life and dignity of the human person. This, too, is a core understanding in restorative justice, which seeks to promote approaches to justice rooted in human dignity, relationship and healing. As a community of faith that shares these ideals, we can help be part of that movement to shift our criminal legal system from one of retribution to one of restoration and transformation.

Join us via Zoom on Thursday, May 26, at 12:30 p.m. for Restorative Justice in the Criminal Legal System. This lunch hour presentation will look at the affinities between Catholic social doctrine and restorative justice, as well as the very real impact restorative approaches can have in our criminal legal system. We are pleased to welcome our speakers, Caitlin Morneau, director of Restorative Justice for Catholic Mobilizing Network, and Dr. Elizabeth Beck, professor in the School of Social Work at Georgia State University’s Andrew Young School of Policy Studies.

Please click here to register. This presentation is co-hosted by Georgia Catholics Against the Death Penalty and Justice and Peace Ministries of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
