Doubts & Questions: Understanding Your Faith Journey
A Workshop on Wednesday, May 16 from 7:00 - 9:00 pm
Led by Deb Turnow Director of The Intimacy Project, Kavanna House
Do you, sometimes, have questions about where your spiritual life is taking you? Have you found yourself having doubts, asking questions, feeling as if you don't "fit in" any longer, and perhaps even feeling that your faith is slipping through your fingertips? Have you struggled in your church context?
How would it feel to know that what you may be experiencing is completely normal and may even be a sign of deeper growth in your life with God?
This workshop, based on The Critical Journey, a book written by Janet Hagberg and Robert Guelich, will outline the stages of one's journey with God. It will also help to answer questions like the ones above. If these questions resonate with you, join Deb Turnow at the Parish Resource Center for this introduction to The Critical Journey.
Join the Parish Resource Center for its first mini-golf outing at Village Greens! Celebrate the beginning of summer with a round of mini-golf, a bounce house, and lawn games with family or friends. A light lunch is also provided as part of the ticket price.

The Rev. Gregory J. Boyle, S.J., founder of Homeboy Industries is widely known as the New York Times bestselling author of the books Tattoos on the Heart and Barking to the Choir. Boyle's Homeboy Industries is located in Los Angeles, the largest gang intervention, rehabilitation, and re-entry program in the world.
About Father Boyle: In 1986, he was appointed pastor of Dolores Mission Church in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of East LA. At the time, Dolores Mission was the poorest Catholic parish in the city, located between two large public housing projects with the highest concentration of gang activity in Los Angeles. He witnessed the devastating impact of gang violence on his community during what he has called "the Decade of Death" that began in the late 1980's.
By 1988, having buried an ever-growing number of young people killed in gang violence, Father Boyle, his parish, and community members sought to address the escalating problems and unmet needs of gang-involved youth. They developed positive opportunities for them, including establishing an alternative school and day-care program, and seeking legitimate employment for them.
Today, Homeboy Industries employs and trains former gang members in a range of social enterprises, as well as provides critical services to 15,000 men and women who walk through its doors every year seeking a better life.
