Presenting the Case Against Article 22
Aug 20 @ 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

Prop 5 has become Article 22 – a proposed amendment for Vermont’s Constitution. It will be on the ballot this November. If approved, Article 22 will have profound effects and ramifications for parents, families, health care providers and their conscience rights, hospitals, the court system, religious institutions, and all Vermont taxpayers.
Come learn from a panel of experts about Article 22 and its ethical and practical aspects. The panel will speak on Saturday, August 20 from 9:30 to noon. Location: Fr. Joseph Lively Center, Summer St. and Winter St. in St. Johnsbury.
The presentation will include some scriptural background, moral, practical, and parental concerns, some of the history on this amendment. The amendment as proposed goes beyond abortion. And the legislators know it.
 
Presenters will be:
Deacon Pete Gummere, Bioethicist, Diocese of Burlington
Matthew Strong, Executive Director, Vermonters for Good Government
Carol Kauffman of Vermont Family Alliance
Sharon Toborg, Public Policy Analyst, Vermont Right to Life.

Grief & Loss Support Group for Widows/Widowers
Aug 23 @ 9:45 am – 11:00 am

Society promotes many misconceptions about grief (e.g., emotions are only acceptable at funerals, grief is brief, only immediate family are impacted, …etc.) that may hinder the recovery process. There is no single pattern to grief. The benefits of a support group with others who have experienced the loss of a spouse or partner helps universalize your experience. You are not alone, although it may feel that way sometimes. Listening to the experience of others who have traversed rough waters usually lends helpful insights into personal practices. For example, ‘how do you make the big house feel less empty’? ‘I don’t want to cook only for myself’. Please join us every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of the month in the rectory parlor to explore supportive ways grief and loss can be the entry point of God’s healing in your life.
Please join us!
