Top Five WWME Notables for April 2018

Below are the Top 5 things for this month!

  1. Two Super Sundays! – There are 2 Super Sunday going on this weekend (April 14/15) at St. Peter Chanel in Roswell, and Sts. Peter and Paul in Decatur! A “Super Sunday” is an inviting event at a Parish where the Priest allows a couple to give a witness talk (usually 3 min. right before the final blessing). The talks have an “outline” that allow you to put in your personal story about your lives before and after the weekend.  We have couples to help you write this talk, so if you are interested, please contact Doug & Maureen Newlands at newlands@bellsouth.net.  Talk to your Priest to see if we can schedule a Super Sunday at your Parish soon!  Start by telling him about your WWME experience, and how other couples in his parish deserve the invitation! Want to help out? Visit one of the parishes for Saturday/Sunday Mass and help hand out brochures!  See schedule below!

Wonderful speakers all day, finishing with Bishop Barron and Mass!!!  We have a table in the main hall with many other ministries. We need YOUR help to hand out brochures!! This is an incredible opportunity to get the message out to thousands of Catholic couples and Priests!!  Not only will you be able to hear awesome speakers and enjoy the day, but also have a hand in helping to invite to this lifegiving weekend!  PLEASE consider signing up to help hand out brochures for an hour of the day. E-mail Roger & Annie Borrello at rogerandann@mydoll.org  to sign up!
  1. Weekend Coming Up! – We have a weekend about to happen April 20-22 at the Marriott Peachtree Corners. Presenting teams: Al & Mary Nelle Connelly, Roger & Annie Borrello, Eric & Traci Barany, and Monsignor Bill Hoffman.  We need prayers and more couples!!  PLEASE call or e-mail 5 couples from your “fridge” list that you know deserve a weekend!!  If you haven’t been on a weekend in 8 or 10 years, consider going on another weekend!  The outline has been updated and you are probably in a different place in your life, that you will “hear” different things!  It is a great way to get back on track with dialogue and the tools you learn on the weekend!  The rest of the weekends this year are:
