CHAPLAIN'S CHATTER: THOUGHTS, REFLECTIONS AND MUSINGS FROM THE CATHOLIC CHAPLAIN
TONIGHT at our 7:00PM Mass, our Easter celebration will continue when we will celebrate the sacraments of initiation for three members of our Catholic community.
Please join us as we celebrate the baptism of Leia Tijou and confirmations of Hailey Trippany and Tyler Moesle. May they continue to listen for God's voice in their hearts as they discern how they are being called to share their gifts and talents in service to others.

“A Rwandan proverb says, ‘To go fast, walk alone. To go far, walk together.
’ When we learn how to slow down to make room for
walking together across divides, we become more Christian.”
Theologian, author, and lecturer Emmanuel Katongole is Associate Professor of Theology and Peace Studies and a member of the faculty of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies at the University of Notre Dame. Born in Uganda, Katongole was ordained a Catholic priest in the Diocese of Mampala and earned a doctoral degree at the Catholic University of Louvain. After teaching at universities in Uganda and South Africa, he served for more than a decade as professor of theology and world Christianity at Duke Divinity School, where he co-founded and co-directed the school's Center for Reconciliation.
The titles of his most recent books—Stories from Bethany: On the Faces of the Church in Africa (2012); The Sacrifice of Africa: A Political Theology for Africa (2010); Mirror to the Church: Resurrecting Faith After Genocide in Rwanda, co-authored with Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove (2009); and Reconciling All Things: A Christian Vision for Justice, Peace and Healing, co-authored with Chris Rice (2008)—as well as the topics of his many scholarly and popular articles, reflect a wide range of research interests that include the Christian social imagination; politics and violence in Africa; Christian approaches to justice, peace, and reconciliation; and Catholicism in the global South.
