Calendar of archdiocesan events

Saturday, Jan. 25
Presentation, Boston -- A Methodist Bishop once said: "One of the greatest tragedies for people with dementia is not that they forget, but it's that they are forgotten." How can we make sure this does not happen? Come and learn from a panel, led by Jennifer R. Getchel, MD, PhD, who will provide information for families and caregivers providing support for those walking the journey of Alzheimer's disease and dementia. The event will take place at the Paulist Center Library, 5 Park Street, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The building is wheelchair accessible. To register, please call 617-742-4460.

Wednesday, Jan. 29
WINGS, Holliston -- WINGS (Women in God's Spirit) meets on Wednesday mornings from 9:45 to 11:15 a.m. in Saint Mary's Parish Hall, 708 Washington Street. Our winter season is "Great Themes of the Old Testament." In this session, Sister Agnes Therrien will speak on "Surrendering to God and His Power to Save." We are all called to make our own Exodus journey, where we learn to trust God, say yes to Him, and put our lives in His hands. All women welcome. For more information or to sign up, call Jennifer at 617-852-9632 or email betty.febo@gmail.com.

Thursday, Jan. 30
WINGS, Lexington -- The fourth session of the Lexington Catholic Community's WINGS (Women IN God's Spirit) group's five-week winter program is being led by Liz Walz, an associate of the Sisters of Providence of Holyoke. Ms. Walz will explore "Saint Brigid of Kildare, Saint Francis of Assisi, and the World is My Monastery." Brigid was a fifth-century abbess, foundress of several monasteries, and is one of Ireland's patron saints. Francis was a twelfth-century monk who founded the Franciscan order. This session will explore icon gazing, aromatherapy, and gentle movement as we begin to recognize the world around us -- wherever we are -- as our monastery. Please join us from 9:30 to 11:15 a.m. at the Saint Brigid Parish Center, 1995 Massachusetts Avenue. Refreshments are served and membership is not required to attend any session.
