Parish mission: Why be Catholic?

Join St. Martin Parish’s Mission and Healing Service entitled: “Why Be Catholic?” Fr. Ken Geraci lived the life of the prodigal son for most of his young adult life. Raised in a nominal Catholic family, who only lived the externals of the faith, Fr. Ken left the Catholic Church for many years. Focused on money, fitness, and success, he made little room for God, but God did not give up on him. Through a series of conversions, years of struggle, study and questioning, Fr. Ken found his way from agnosticism to non-denomination Christianity and ultimately back to the Catholic Church. Fr. Ken joined the Fathers of Mercy in 2006 and was ordained in 2012. This mission is for people of all ages and levels of faith, from those who are madly in love with Jesus, to those who cannot stand church or religion. The dates for the mission are Nov. 26, 27, 28, 29, 30 at St. Martin Parish, 5856 State Route 81, Owensboro, Ky. We will have Adoration, benediction, confessions, healing service and music. Tuesday night will be a great night for teenagers and young adults. This mission is free. CDs will be for sale. More info: [email protected].

Brescia seeks licensed psychologist for tenure-track position

Brescia University is proudly rooted in the Ursuline tradition, valuing education, and serving community. Pandemic and social upheaval have shown us many heroes, for whom we are truly thankful, especially given the shortages that are seen across so many professions that make the burden of these heroes greater. We pray for our heroes and we also call others to join them in serving community. We have graduate programs in Business, Social Work, Speech and Language, and Clinical Psychology. These offer training and skills to grow strong shoulders. Currently, to help us prepare others, we have need of a licensed psychologist for a tenure-track position in the MS Clinical Psychology Program. Some of the benefits include health, dental, life insurance, retirement, and tuition. Responsibilities include teaching in a hyflex format (in class/online hybrid), serving on committees, providing supervision, and community service. Brescia University is an equal opportunity employer. Diverse candidates are urged to apply to help us better serve our diverse community. Visit www.brescia.edu/employment for more information about this position!
