This coming Tuesday one of our Franciscans, originally from Detroit, will be buried here. Fr. Rock Travnikar was one of the first friars I got to know when I came to Southfield in 1968 to begin my college studies. He began as a brother, but discerned a call to the priesthood and was ordained several months ahead of me. In recent years he served as pastoral minister in a retirement community in Tampa. The funeral will be at 10:00 am on January 10th.
Did one of your New Year's resolutions have anything to do with becoming better acquainted with the bible? You are welcome to join our Thursday evening bible study which has resumed its meetings in the Duns Scotus Room on Thursday evening. Our Tuesday morning bible study continues to meet at 8:45 am in the same place.
On Tuesday, January 17th, we resume our ChristLife program and offer the second of three parts: Following Christ. I hope that those who attended the first session will continue, even if the first session dates back to the last winter when we offered ChristLife for the first time. You'll find a list of the topics for Following Christ elsewhere in this bulletin.
