After a huge, positive turnout for THIRST three years ago, the chance to encounter the love of Christ in a setting like no other will return on Oct. 28-30.
The event will, once again, be held at the Bismarck Event Center and offer a schedule of influential speakers and evangelists in celebration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.
Plans are still being finalized, but the list of speakers includes most notably, Cardinal Edwin O’Brien, who serves as the Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. This organization’s principal mission is to reinforce the practice of Christian life by its members in absolute fidelity to the pope and sustain and assist the religious, spiritual, charitable and social works and rights of the Catholic Church and Christians in the Holy Land.
Other speakers include: Fr. Dwight Longenecker, Fr. Scott Traynor, Leah Darrow, Fran Beach, Judy Hehr and Dr. Ray Guarendi, the popular author and radio talk show host. Local speakers include Monsignors James Shea and Thomas Richter. Other speakers will likely be added to the lineup, as well as entertainment and other features. More details will follow in the coming months.
The late Michelle Duppong, headed up the plans for the previous conference while working as the diocese’s coordinator for the Year of Faith in 2013. She shared these words about the THIRST 2013: “Please join us for this conference! Why? Because Jesus is real and you and I need Him. We need His love. We need His mercy and healing. We need His encouragement. We need to know what He has made us for. God will be changing people’s lives at this event—guaranteed. Will you let Him meet you?”
Her passion for bringing others to know the Lord rang true then, and still applies today. We invite you to attend the life-changing THIRST 2016!
A funeral vigil for Travis Burgad will be held at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, April 4th, at Myers Funeral Home in Linton, ND. The Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Tuesday, April 5th, at 10:30 a.m. in Sts. Peter & Paul Church, Strasburg, ND. Burial will follow at St. Anthony Cemetery in Linton, ND.
On Ash Wednesday we were reminded of our mortality, that we are “dust.” We all have good intentions of using Lent to get our priorities back in order, putting our pursuit of heaven at the top of the list. Many of us fail because we don’t make concrete plans. I hope these suggestions help you to do just that.
I'm excited to announce that our parish will be offering the adult education program called Symbolon. This program will help our parish discover the big picture of our Catholic faith. Symbolon reveals for us us the richness of the Catholic Faith and is comprised of beautiful and engaging video presentations filmed in different locations including Rome, the Holy Land, and Calcutta. In the 20 session series, a variety of teachers will take you through the entire story of the Catholic faith to answer questions like, “Who was Jesus? Why did He start a Church? How can I get the most out of reading the Bible? Why do I have to confession? Why must Catholics care for the poor?” And much more!
Everyone is invited to participate, especially those who are not Catholic or who wish they understood their Catholic faith better. Plan to attend, and invite others to join you.
When: Thursday evenings beginning January 28th, 2016, at 7 p.m.
Where: Sts. Peter & Paul Church basement, Strasburg.
