Parish Mission: Desiderata – A Christian Perspective

  “Desiderata a Christian Perspective”

Presented by Deacon Ben LoCasto
Wednesday, December 15th, 7 – 8 pm
Church of the Holy Family, Hebron

“You are a Child of the Universe,
No less than the trees and the stars,
You have a right to be here”

In the 1920s a writer named Max Ehrmann wrote a prose poem entitled Desiderata (Things desired)

50 years later the poem became a sensation widely circulated around the world.

It is a poem of faith and hope which emphasizes the worth of every human being, no matter how humble, and highlights the importance of each of our own lives and aspirations.

Come hear how this seemingly secular poem has deep roots in Christianity and has real meaning and significance for all of us today.

This presentation is free of charge.
Free-will donations are greatly appreciated.

*Please wear your face covering*

7 PM, Wednesday, December 15, Church of the Holy Family, 185 Church Street, Hebron
