The Art of Accompaniment  – Cluster Workshop—Sat 21st October

Pope Francis is asking everyone in the Church to ‘make present the fragrance of  Christ’s presence… removing our sandals before the sacred ground of the other’ (Joy of the Gospel, 169). With these words the Holy Father is calling us to put the art of accompaniment at the very heart of our parish life. Bill Huebsch, an influential American lay theologian, and a warm, engaging speaker, will share with us ideas from his new book ‘The Art of Accompaniment’. We’ll learn about walking with others through the ups and down of life, perhaps family who have stopped joining us for the Sunday Eucharist, friends who struggling, or anyone feeling unsure about aspects of church teaching. Offered to the whole cluster, it will take place in St FX parish on Sat 21st October, starting after 10am Mass. Come help build the Church of Mercy!
