We would like to let you know that our guest speaker for this Friday, Rabbi Richard Harvey, had to cancel his coming down here due to the weather conditions. We are really sorry about that, but there will be hopefully another date arranged with him.
We will still have our Friday night meeting here tomorrow, as well as the men’s day on Saturday. So we look forward to all of you who are able to come!
The speaker for our First Friday Fellowship Meeting for March will be Dr Richard Harvey, speaking on the theme “Messianic Jews today”.
Richard is a Messianic Jew and well known speaker and author. He has been involved in dialogue about reconciliation between the Roman Catholic Church and Messianic Jews. He spoke about this dialogue with Fr. Peter Hocken (just before Fr Peter passed away), giving a presentation in Rome at the Urbania University, on the 2nd of June 2017 as part of the official program of the Golden Jubilee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal.
