STEWARDSHIP REFLECTION FOR THE PRESENTATION OF THE LORD, 2 FEBRUARY 2020
 “…they took him up to Jerusalem to present him to the Lord...” (Luke 2:22)
How seriously do you take being a Catholic?  Is “being Catholic” something I just do when I attend Sunday Mass or attend one of my parish functions?  It’s easy to be Catholic then, it’s harder to be Catholic when I am out in the world.  Would someone recognize you as a Catholic by the way you act, dress, and talk?  How do you present yourself to the Lord and to others?

‘BEING A CATHOLIC IN 2020 MELBOURNE'
Monday 3 February Archbishop Peter Comensoli
Where: European Bier Café
Level 1, 120 Exhibition Street CBD MELBOURNE
Doors open at 6.30 pm, the talk will commence at 7.30 pm.
Audience: 18 to 35 year olds; Priests and Religious of all ages welcome
Theology @ the Pub are thrilled to kick off the New Year with our very own Archbishop Peter Comensoli, talking around the topic of 'Being a Catholic in 2020 Melbourne'. As young adults in a very secular city, it can sometimes be difficult to navigate our way through the many challenges we face. How are we called to evangelise? What would the Archbishop like the young people of Melbourne to focus on this year? These are some of the questions he will be focusing on, whilst allowing time to answer questions from the audience.
