Who hasn’t, at some point in their life…if not daily, experienced stress, anxiety, fear, worry, grief, disappointment, or any other “trying” state of emotion. These are all just some of the sources of knots in our lives that keep us from living as God intends: sin, life circumstances, things beyond our control, things that we’ve brought upon ourselves, and things others have done to us.

If you are seeking peace and want to find solutions to those unnamed knots in life, then Tied in Knots: Finding Peace in Today's World by Greg Willits, is the book for you. It serves as a companion on a journey toward greater peace. This book helps you discover the root of the knots in your life and ways to begin having them untied for good. But how?

Join us as author, Greg Willits, editorial director of Our Sunday Visitor, discusses his new book. You'll have a chance to ask questions...and maybe win a copy of his book!

The Shepherd Who Didn't Run

Cost: Free
 

Join us to hear award-winning author Maria Ruiz Scaperlanda discuss her book about Fr. Stanley Rother, the first US-born martyr, who will be beatified on September 23, 2017.

"The shepherd cannot run at the first sign of danger."

Fr. Stanley Rother was true to his word. He did not run.

Fr. Stanley arrived in Guatemala in 1968, and immediately identified with his parishioners' simple, farming lifestyle. After nearly a decade, the violence of the Guatemalan civil war found its way into the peaceful village. Disappearances, killings, and danger became daily occurrences, but despite this unrest Fr. Stanley remained hard at work--and was martyred at the age of 46.

Maria will answer audience questions after her presentation.
