An AMAZING Experience!


At my parish of Ss. Simon and Jude Cathedral we have an annual tradition called “Teaching Tuesdays”. On each of these series of Tuesdays we attend the 6:30pm Mass and afterward walk across to Smith Hall for an inspirational talk given by our Cathedral’s rector Father John Lankeit (–my all-time favorite speaker!  Father Lankeit recently began a course on contemplative spiritual direction (which basically means helping people learn to pray on a deeper level). He found what he’s been learning so far has to be so fascinating that he’s chosen it as this year’s Teaching Tuesdays theme, the title being “Teach Us To Pray” (Luke 11:1). Having been able to already glimpse a little of what we’ll be discussing in his homilies, I can tell that it’s going to be an AMAZING experience! I’d like to invite anyone reading this post to consider visiting our Cathedral on the Tuesdays of February 24 through March 24 to experience this “amazingness” for themselves. (Even if you aren’t Catholic, I’m certain you will find it enjoyable. Father Lankeit is such an excellent speaker!) The info is listed below, and if you need more info, you can contact me at Oh, and if you end up missing the first one or two talks, don’t worry. It’s the kind of series that you can still gain a lot from if you miss part of it.
