"Return to me with your whole heart. For gracious and merciful is God, slow to anger, abounding in loving kindness” (Joel 2:13). Care and Support Ministry is hosting another "Silent Saturday" and invites you to spend a few hours of quiet, uninterrupted time in prayer and solitude in our beautiful Pax Christi campus. We will create a peaceful environment for prayer time, journaling, walking, or just resting in God's presence. Silent Saturday is an opportunity to step away from the sounds and distractions of our lives and enter into nourishing silence. How you spend the few hours is up to you. Our hope is that you will leave feeling refreshed. The morning will begin with a short prayer followed by a simple tour of the facility to highlight quiet places and spaces available to you. We will conclude our time together with a short prayer and an optional group sharing time. There is no fee, but we do ask that you notify us if you plan on attending. Contact Jean Thoresen, Director of Care and Support Ministries, jthoresen@paxchristi.com.

Tuesday, March 6, 6:30–7:30pm, Thomas Merton Chapel

"Look, O Lord, at the anguish I suffer! My stomach churns, and my heart recoils within me.” Every human knows suffering. Our bodies ache, our spirits grieve, our communities feel broken. Have you ever asked questions like: Where is God in all of this? Why is there so much evil in the world? Is God making me suffer for my past life? How do I help someone who is constantly suffering? How do I “offer up” my own suffering? Do Catholics enjoy suffering? Is it possible for Jesus to heal me? What if He doesn’t? The Care and Support Ministry has invited Father Marc Paveglio to join us as we explore the mystery of suffering through the lens of faith. Drawing upon the Scriptures, the writings of Pope John Paul II, and personal experience, Father Marc will offer a teaching on the meaning of suffering, with space for reflection and discussion. This evening is for anyone who desires to hear Good News in the midst of suffering, whether it be in themselves, in their families, or in the world. No registration needed.

Friday, March 16, 6:30pm
Again this year we will provide the opportunity to experience a unique Way of the Cross, published by the Maryknoll Fathers. When we follow the Way of the Cross, we are given the opportunity to place ourselves into the passion of Jesus, grieving for the evils against ourselves or others. Our world still suffers from oppression and crucifixion. Can we take the time to realize who God has created each of us to be?  Meditating on these depictions and realizing that we have a chance to move beyond our shortcomings, we can seek forgiveness and experience the great gift of this holy season. Please join us Friday, March 16, 6:30pm, for this unique opportunity once again this year at Pax Christi.

The Journey Home: Honoring Community and the Common Good
The fourth in our Social Justice Speakers Series, we will meet Debbie Wyman and Chuck Peterson from Clare Housing. The work of Clare Housing is grounded in social justice and equity advocacy. As the only organization in Minnesota focused exclusively on the housing and supportive needs for people living with HIV/AIDS, Clare Housing is uniquely positioned to ensure that housing-based interventions are a key component in an era of rapidly changing public policy and programs affecting people living with HIV/AIDS. Research consistently links homelessness and housing instability to greater HIV risk, inadequate health care, poor health outcomes, and early death. Evaluations (including evaluations of Clare Housing’s work) indicate that stable housing with appropriate supports improve physical and mental health, reduce behaviors that can transmit HIV, and sharply cut public spending. Given this evidence, the unmet housing need among people living with HIV and those most vulnerable to HIV infection must be viewed as a moral/human rights issue, a public health issue, and an issue of fiscal responsibility. Come hear about the mission of Clare Housing!

Weekend of March 24/25
The weekend of March 24/25, parishioners are invited to bring their “Burgundy Bags” (or any bag or box of food we bring to share!) to Mass. Instead of placing your donation in the collection bins at the church entrances, please bring the bags/boxes INTO the church and keep them with you; then, as part of the Presentation of the Gifts, you will be guided to bring your “offerings” of food forward and place them in front of the altar. Volunteers will be present to assist young and old, single or families. All are welcome!
