REACH offers opportunity for Catholics to learn more about how to live out the evangelical mission of the Church
BOSTON, April 16, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- FOCUS, the Fellowship of Catholic University Students, will be hosting REACH | Boston, a New Evangelization Prayer Breakfast on Tuesday, April 23, 2013. The event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Cambridge.
"We really believe the best days of our nation can still be ahead of us, but it will only happen if we begin with prayer," said Curtis Martin, President and Founder of FOCUS. "We have to recognize that the Church is asking us to live differently. We're no longer to be spectators; we all have an active role to play. Together we'll be able to discern what God is calling each of us to do."
REACH | Boston will feature speakers Fr. Robert Spitzer, President of the Magis Center of Reason and Faith; Margarita Zavala de Calderon, former First Lady of Mexico; and Sister Bethany Madonna Burwell of the Sisters of Life. Sean Cardinal O'Malley, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Boston will be celebrating Mass.
REACH is an opportunity for local community members to gather in prayer and fellowship, to encounter Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, to hear the words of inspirational speakers, and to learn more about how they can live out the evangelical mission of the Church in their families, parishes, workplaces and communities. In addition to the Boston event, REACH Prayer Breakfasts have already been held in Washington, D.C. and Kansas City, and there are also events scheduled for Omaha and Philadelphia this spring.
