Default Live in Houston? Funeral Plans?

Just to let ya'll know what is going on in Houston for the pope's funeral!


________________________________________ _______________

All Roads Lead to Rome: a Journey for JPII

Sponsored by: University of St. Thomas students & UST Campus Ministry
Targeting: Houston-area Catholic young adults

What: Have a mini-World Youth Day experience (well, sort of). We’re going to have a HUGE procession (with candles and singing and praying) from the back parking lot of Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral, to University of St. Thomas Campus (total trip approx. 2 miles). Upon arriving at UST we’ll have a prayer service. Then, we’ll watch a biography of the Pope and “camp-out” on the mall until 3am at which time we’ll watch JP II’s funeral mass outdoors on a big screen. Breakfast will be provided.

When & Where: Meet at Crooker Center on the UST campus at 11pm Thursday April 7th and we’ll take buses to Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral. Or meet us at the Co-Cathedral as we begin our procession at 12am. (If you meet us at the Co-Cathedral, make sure you have a way to get back to your car afterwards!)

Why: Pope John Paul II always sought to bring people together. This gives the people of Houston the opportunity to participate in the memorial of our late Pope locally, and in conjunction with the ceremonies in Rome. It’s an excellent opportunity for the evangelization he called us to… Let’s show Houston that the Pope was right about the strength of the youth!

What to bring: Wear comfortable walking shoes and a white shirt (so drivers can easily spot you). Bring a rosary and a flashlight. Candles will be provided, though you are welcome to bring your own. You may want to bring something to sit on if you are staying to watch the funeral, unless you are comfortable chillin’ on the grass...

This is the real deal – We received the OK this morning from our UST president and the City of Houston (we’ll have a police escort) and we’re currently contacting the local media, colleges, and young adult groups.

As for Pelosi, Chaput called her “a gifted public servant of strong convictions and many professional skills. Regrettably, knowledge of Catholic history and teaching does not seem to be one of them.”

Thumbs up Re: Live in Houston? Funeral Plans?

Oh, I pray that many young folks will be able to come out for that event. It sounds like it is going to be a wonderful evening.

If there was any way that I could be there I would.

God Bless

I went to that and it was awesome! A wonderful way to say goodbye to our Holy Father.
In Servitate Veritatis,
