Parish Table Talk
• Archdiocese of Baltimore Formation for Ministry with Young Adults: The Archdiocese of Baltimore is sponsoring a two-part training workshop for all those interested in learning more about and acquiring skills in ministry with, for, and to people in their 20’s and 30’s. This would include clergy, religious, young adult ministry core teams, sacramental preparation ministers (especially for Baptism and Marriage), and vocation ministers. The training will be at the Church of the Resurrection in Ellicott City, MD from 6-9pm on May 16 and May 30. Please plan to attend both sessions.

• Requiescat in Pace: We were saddened to learn last week of the death of Sr. Mary Teresa Day, SNDdeN. Sister was a faith formator known for her exuberance, her life-long commitment to life-long formation, and her kindly guidance to others in the ministry. Please keep Sister and her family in your prayers.
