Pope Francis and the Joy of the Gospel

In his apostolic exhortation, The Joy of the Gospel, Pope Francis begins with this message: "The joy of the gospel fills the hearts and lives of all who encounter Jesus . . . I wish to encourage the Christian faithful to embark upon a new chapter of evangelization marked by this joy . . ." Many Catholics are encouraged by the tone and spirit in which the Pope delivers his message. Please join us in a forum that will explore the calling of Pope Francis for us to develop a loving encounter with God and our neighbor. We hope that this forum will provide continuing steps in strengthening the bond we share in faith.

Keep the date!!! Sunday, April 19th

The YOM HASHOAH service will be held at Temple Emanuel on Sunday, April 19th, 2015.

This year's speaker is Mr. Irving Roth, Holocaust survivor, writer and internationally - known educator. Irving Roth was a teenager when he was taken by train with his brother and grandparents and 437 other Jews to Auschwitz.

The mission of the YOM HASHOAH Committee seeks to honor the memory of the victims of the Holocaust and those who helped the victims, and to tell the story of the Holocaust in such a way as to encourage resistance to any future holocaust.

Churches United has been one of the long time sponsors of this committee and encourages anyone interested to attend this moving service.
