"The Ministry of Reconciliation: Building Peace, Restoring Hope." Event Details

Close
2:00 pm

St. Joseph Parish, 107 East Pearl Street, Wapakoneta, will host a presentation on Sunday, October 12, 2 p.m., by Father David Kelly, CPPS, entitled "The Ministry of Reconciliation: Building Peace, Restoring Hope." The event will be held in the Parish Life Center and is free and open to the public. Those attending should access the building via the Blackhoof Street parking lot.

Father David Kelly grew up in St. Joseph Parish, and is a member of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. For more than 30 years, he has served as a chaplain at the Cook County Juvenile Detention Center and at the Cook County Jail in Chicago. He holds a D.Min. from the Catholic Theological Union in Chicago.

In 2000, Father Kelly co-founded the Precious Blood Ministry of Reconciliation with three friends and fellow members of the Missionaries of the Precious Blood. Their dream was to create a ministry to work for healing and reconciliation in the midst of the violence and alienation. Part of their dream was realized with the establishment of the Precious Blood Center for Reconciliation in the Back of the Yards neighborhood on the South Side of Chicago. In this violence-plagued setting, the Center is a haven of safety, and a place of hospitality and community. Father Kelly is known for the compassionate presence and sense of solidarity he brings to those who suffer from violence and poverty and for his ability to inspire others toward the same compassion and solidarity.

Father Kelly appears at St. Joseph as part of the parish's yearlong celebration of its 175th anniversary. St. Joseph is currently served by Father Patrick Sloneker, pastor, and Father Daniel Hunt, associate pastor. The parish is in the Petersburg Pastoral Region with Botkins Immaculate Conception, Fryburg St. John, and Rhine St. Lawrence, so named for the now-vanished Petersburg settlement (between Wapakoneta and Botkins) from which the parishes emerged in the 19th century.

Those with questions should call Rachel Barber, 419/738-4924.

The Sew-a-thon is the third sponsored by the Social Justice Commission this year.
