On Sunday, October 7, AT THE TSU CATHOLIC NEWMAN CENTER (3535 Wheeler Ave, Houston, 77004) we will have a special Eucharist and celebration shaped by Hispanic Heritage Month and the theme of that day’s reading from Hebrews, Pioneers in Faith and Sacrifice (Heb 2:10). Maria Bautista Vargas will be preaching, and the music and liturgy will reflect the 1.5/2nd generation Latino experience, as we give thanks for those who have been pioneers in faith and sacrifice in our own lives. All are welcome!
On Sunday, October 21, Bishop Fisher will be joining us at The Gathering at St. Luke the Evangelist to celebrate and preach and party with us. Even if The Gathering is not the normal way you connect to Houston Canterbury, we hope that you will mark your calendars to be there for some great conversation and quality time with the bishop.
