Dr. Thomas Droleskey Speaks
Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey, the editor-publisher of www.Christorchaos.com, will present a comprehensive review of the Catholic Faith, “Living in the Shadow of the Cross,” from Monday, July 9, 2007, to Saturday, August 25, 2007. Each lecture will last for two hours. The program is being presented so as to help Catholics to seem themselves and the world more clearly through the eyes of the true Faith. Those who attend do not have to be parishioners of Saint Gertrude the Great Church. Indeed Catholics across the ecclesiastical divide are very welcome to attend. Free will offerings will be asked from those who attend these lectures.
All talks will be given in Helfta Hall.
Dr. Droleskey and his family are traveling missionaries of Christ the King, itinerant evangelists, entirely dependent upon your charity. Please check on Christ or Chaos – Donations in order to make a donation, or you may help them through St. Gertrude the Great. Offerings through the church are tax deductible.
