Dallas notes/Men’s Vigil Reminder September 8, 2015Posted by Tantumblogo in Basics, Dallas Diocese, Domestic Church, family, General Catholic, North Deanery, Our Lady, priests, Society, Tradition, Virtue.
The next men’s vigil outside the so-called Men’s Club will be this Wednesday, Sept. 9 @ 8 pm! At least, I’ll be there! I pray many of you are, as well. If you are new, for all the details on location, the response we get, etc., go here.
Two other local notes. A representative from Wyoming Catholic College will be at Mater Dei parish in Irving on Thursday, October 1 at 7:15 pm. He works in the admissions office and will be on hand to answer any questions you or a young person you know might have regarding Wyoming Catholic College. The meeting will be in the parish hall.
Wyoming Catholic is one of a few colleges this blogger would contemplate sending his kids to. A representative of the university a few years ago said that tuition and fees were not as high as many other small Catholic colleges – $24,000. That may have been all inclusive, I don’t recall. The point being, it’s not as prohibitively expensive as many other Catholic colleges. This is not the post to re-examine my concerns over students going into huge amounts of debt for degrees that do not appreciably increase their earning power (thus justifying the investment), but Wyoming Catholic appears more affordable than most. Plus, horseback riding and Dr. Kwasniewski.
Final note, Fr. Mitch Pacwa will be giving a presentation on “Challenges of the Christian Family in the USA” on Saturday, October 3 at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Catholic parish at 11:30 am. He will offer Mass on Saturday at 5:30 and Sunday at 8:30 and 11. His presence there is part of the Lebanese Food Festival offered at the parish every year, which runs from Oct. 2-4. This is a large festival attended by thousands every year.
I can’t watch EWTN anymore (no cable) and may as well pull the radio out of my truck because I never use it, but I always liked Fr. Pacwa. He’s been very supportive of Our Lady of Lebanon since serving as priest there many years ago.
