...the Eucharist as the Perfection of Memory

Dr. Matthew Kuhner

Sunday, October 21, 2018
St. Mary's of the Lake
9:45-11:15 AM


Sharing on the challenges of presenting
to our young people a faith that is at its core,
Eucharistic and life giving
in the midst of the competing voices being heard in today's world.

Join us for a time of prayerful reflection and discussion
on the role of memory in our lives,
and how it is fulfilled and perfected in the Eucharist.

Looking for Survey Participants  

Greetings, I am a doctoral candidate at Northeastern Seminary in Rochester.  My dissertation involves a study of small faith communities in Wayne County to determine how relationship, resilience, and service have informed your faith community over the years.  I would appreciate your assistance with this survey which needs to be completed by October 27, 2018.

All responses will be anonymous.  You may access this questionnaire online at  Paper copies with self-addressed stamped envelope are also available in the back of St. Mary's Church if you prefer.  

Thank you for your time and consideration.
