Vino & Vespers - April 27, 2007

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 speaker for this evening is
Br. Rufino Zaragoza, OFM

Br. Rufino ministers as a liturgical music consultant while continuing studies in multicultural ministry focusing on the Vietnamese-American community. He frequently travels to Vietnam, researching examples of liturgical inculturation and writes on the gift of Vietnamese liturgy for the American church. Read more about the Vietnam pilgrimages he organizes at vnpilgrimage.com/ocp.html.

Another very special guest will be
Bishop Patrick J. McGrath, Bishop of San José.

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.
