Fr. Albert Haase, OFM:

Contemporary Holiness: Becoming the Person God Calls Us to Be

January 21, 2017
St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, Las Cruces 9am - 4pm

There are many ways to think about the spiritual life. In recent years, many spiritual writers have talked about the True Self and the False Self. The True Self is the person whom God has created me to be. The False Self is the person whom I have made myself into.

On Saturday, January 21, Fr. Albert Haase, OFM, will lead us in a workshop dealing with the True Self and the False Self. He'll begin by discussing how the spiritual journey is a process of transformation. He will discuss the 10 characteristics of the True Self which indicate we are growing in the person God calls us to be. He’ll discuss the “lie” of the False Self’s agenda and how we all become trapped in it. Finally, he will discuss how to break free of the False Self’s agenda and begin the transformative journey to the True Self.

Fr. Albert's books and DVDs will be available for purchase during the day (cash or checks only). The day begins at 9am and concludes at 4pm. There is a $10.00 donation payable at the door. Lunch will be on your own. No prior registration required.
