Word and Deed
    An on-going Generous Promises Grant Fund Program

Director: Dianne Hanley, MPS

A program to promote spiritual growth through the integration of spirituality with social justice work in the community. Requires a commitment to consistent prayer and working for systemic change.

Does your spirituality draw you to impact our world? Are you looking for a community that actively lives out their faith through social action? This project has been partially funded by the Congregation of St. Joseph Generous Promise Grant Fund.

Join in the conversations, companionship and activity of a faith lived out in word and deed.

The next Word and Deed gathering will be held on Monday, April 10 at 6:30 at St. Paul Catholic Church.

1. If you are unable to attend a program for which you are already registered, we will refund your fee, upon request, less a 25% administrative charge. You also have the option to transfer the fee to a future program sponsored by the Center.

2. Weekend program fees will not be refunded if cancellation occurs within a week of the program.

3. We rarely cancel. If we do, we will refund the entire fee. When making a last minute decision to attend a program, it is wise to call the Center to make certain that the program is still on schedule.

Although we are entirely dependent upon program fees and donations for our support, we would not want anyone excluded for lack of funds. Please call the Center for more information on our policy of reduced fees or scholarship availability for our programs.
