William Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing
What:The Bard’s famous comedic romp known for the brilliant war of words between the feisty Beatrice and the staunch bachelor Benedick.
Much Ado About Nothing plays out amidst the brittle high spirits of a post-war house party. When Don Pedro Prince of Aragon visits Leonato,
Duke of Messina, love antics ensue. War hero Claudio falls in love with Leonato’s daughter, Hero and their marriage is agreed upon.
While marriage preparations ensue, Don Pedro schemes up a plan to make old flames and longtime bantering partners Benedick and Beatrice fall in love.

This charming exploration of love and marriage, friendship and honor, features some of Shakespeare’s wittiest and most poignant dialogue.

Directed by Ryan Bird

Bible Study Following the Call of Christ - Sacred Heart Parish Center
What:Bishop Robert Barron’s
CONVERSION
Following the Call of Christ

Bishop Barron uses six stories from the Bible to demonstrate how ordinary, sinful people are met by Jesus in all ages and are called to a better life through him. Conversion is not so much a one-time event, but a life-long process of focusing one’s attention and energy toward an ever-deepening relationship with Christ.

If you have never attended a Bible study or you attend Mass once a week and Holy days, Lent is a good time to come out of your comfort zone and see what Christ has just for you; you will not be disappointed.
The cost will be $20; please call our Pastoral Minister Deb Briancesco to sign up or with any questions.

Women's Conference - Evangel A/G Wilbraham
What:"Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above
yourselves." Romans 12:10

Do you know that once we say "I do" to Christ and accept Him in our lives and hearts we automatically sign ourselves up for war? We are not talking about wars like you know throughout history or hear on the news. No...we're talking about a war that you can't see with the
physical eye. A war that is happening all around us. A war led by the only true enemy behind all the struggles, battles, and trials we face.
We are talking about SPIRITUAL WARFARE. One we can't fight against with our physical beings, physical weapons or alone. Are you prepared?
Do you have the proper armor? Do you know who your fellow soldiers are? It's time to fight back! Are you ready?

Evangel Women is hosting our annual Women's Conference, and you are
invited! We will learn how to be prepared for battle, how to guard ourselves and how to help those that are fighting alongside of us. We
will be looking at scripture and lessons from local author, Sandi Michon's book, "Trench Buddies".

Friday- Doors open @ 6pm
Session I @ 7pm / Dessert bar @ 9pm
