Vino & Vespers - April 28, 2006

Vino & Vespers

Vino & Vespers gives busy people of faith a place to pray simply (you don’t have to plan a thing!), eat and drink well (you don’t have to bring any food), and talk candidly about faith, church, and real life (you don’t have to prepare any lesson plans or make any handouts!).

Gather with others who love the Church and spend an evening with three of God’s best gifts: prayer, food, and conversation. We’ll begin with Evening Prayer followed by an intimate conversation with our guest speaker about faith and daily life as we savor delicious desserts and fine wine.

Our guest speakers for this evening are
Rev. Eduardo Samaniego, SJ,
and Rev. Jon Pedigo

Fr. Eduardo Samaniego, S.J., is the pastor of Most Holy Trinity Parish in San José. Fr. Jon Pedigo is the pastor of St. Julie Billiart Parish in San José. Both of them traveled to Washington, D.C., last March to join other faith leaders from the Bay Area in a national prayer vigil on the steps of the Senate in support of comprehensive immigration reform. They were also part of a 25-member group who met with Senator Dianne Feinstein over lunch to share their concerns about immigration reform.

to take a stand for justice for all people.
Immigration reform has been called
this generation's new “civil rights movement.”
Come here the experience of those
who have gone to the forefront of the debate.

Vino & Vespers are interactive evenings that feature prominent Catholics talking about how they live their faith through the real events of contemporary life in the Silicon Valley. Young adults over 21 and those very much over-21 are especially invited.
