good shepherdThe Community of the Good Shepherd (8815 E. Kemper Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45249) is presenting a Lenten Parish Mission, “Taking the Further Journey,” with Paula D’Arcy March 2, 3 and 4. She will speak at 9:30 a.m. and repeat the session at 7:00 p.m. each evening.

A sign over the altar at the St. Francis Cathedral in Santa Fe reads, Love one another constantly. The word “constantly” changes the phrase from a beautiful invitation to discipleship, to an even deeper challenge to move into the heart of love and forgiveness.  What does it mean to move beyond the small story of our lives and to answer the deep call of love?

  •  Monday, March 2 – “Walking a New Road – Meeting Life with an Open Heart”
  • Tuesday, March 3 – “Knowing the Power of Forgiveness”
  • Wednesday, March 4 – “The Richness of Our Loving”

Paula D’Arcy is a writer, playwright, retreat leader and conference and seminar speaker.
