The Parish Life Office of the Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown will sponsor a Catholic Life Day of Reflection on September 30 at the Bertschi Center at Mount Aloysius College in Cresson.
Bishop Mark will deliver the keynote address focusing on the theme of the day — “The Virtue of Magnanimity.” Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI noted that in our time, we have lost the art of living and loving in such a big way. Magnanimity is the crucial life skill (virtue) of living and loving in a positive, intentional, big way.
Also scheduled for the Day of Reflection — a spiritual reflection presented by Monsignor Robert Mazur, Rector of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament and Diocesan Director of Liturgy. Monsignor Mazur will guide the participants in a personal prayer experience on Hope.
