Religious Articles for Missions –
Due to limited resources, Catholic missionaries around the world welcome donations of devotional items to share with the faithful in their home countries. These include rosaries and chaplets, statues of religious figures, Bibles, holy cards, crucifixes, framed religious pictures, prayer books, and other spiritual reading material.
If such items are now taking up space in your basement, attic, or garage, because they require repair or are no longer needed, you can give them new life during a class about “Religious Articles for Missions” (RAM). This class is taught by Father Edward Brienz, Director of Propagation of the Faith and Missions Office of the Diocese of Youngstown. Those who complete the class will be invited to volunteer on a regular basis in this important work of the Church.
When: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, October 25, 2014
Where: St. Columba Rectory, 159 W. Rayen Avenue, Youngstown, OH 44503
What: Segment 1 of the RAM class will include a discussion that will cover the meaning and history of sacramentals; an explanation of religious articles for Missions Apostolate; devotions to Jesus, Mary, and various saints; and sacramentals associated with them.
Segment 2 will be a hands-on workshop during which you can choose to work in the Organizing Station; Cleaning Station; Rosary & Jewelry Repair Station; Painting Station; or Polishing Station. All necessary materials and guidance will be provided. 107 Registration: By Wednesday, October 15, 2014; call the Propagation of the Faith/Missions Office, 330 / 744-8451, x 277, to reserve your place in this class. 4 hours of Religious Education Continuing Credits will be awarded upon completion of this class.
