Saturday, October 10, 2020 - Young Adult Pilgrimage
Join young adults from South Bend on a 4-mile walking pilgrimage from Christ the King Parish to Saint Joseph Parish. St. Joe's is hosting a traveling exhibit for Carlo Acutis, a 15-year-old computer programmer virtuoso who died of cancer at 15 and is being beatified. This will be a great event, is totally free for guys in HLS, and features food and music at the end of the pilgrimage to meet other young adult Catholics! Sign up HERE.
Holy Person of the Week
Carlo Acutis was your average dude who loved computers almost as much as he loved the Lord. Given the propensity of images of him wearing red shirts, we can only assume he was a huge fan of the dorm of saints and scholars, Zahm House.
Beneath the surface of going to high school and building computers, Carlo also had a deep, deep faith. He went to daily Mass, weekly confession, and prayed often to his favorite saints whom he grew to know well. He was deeply drawn to the Eucharist and was fascinated by Eucharistic miracles. So, as any young tech savvy Catholic does, he began visiting as many sites of Eucharistic miracles as possible and started a website that is still active. Check it out HERE. Carlo is getting beatified on October 10th and an exhibit highlighting his life will be at St Joe where we are making a pilgrimage to next Saturday the 10th!
Take a page from Carlo and strive to be a great saint. As Carlo would say: "We are all born original, but many die as photocopies." *mic drop*
