Lecture to use Bible story as model for church youth outreach

When Jesus encountered disciples on the road to Emmaus, according to the Gospel of Luke, their eyes were kept from recognizing him.

Claire Bondy will explore how this story can be a model in a free public presentation “Called to accompany: How to draw young people back into the life of the church,” at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church Hall, on Tuesday, September 18, at 7:30 p.m.

“Each of us is called to walk along the path with the young church, whether they are sitting in the pews every week or have wandered in a different direction,” Bondy says.

She is a family and youth ministry specialist for the Roman Catholic diocese of London. Her talk is presented by Assumption University as part of its Christian Culture Series. Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church is located at 4401 Mount Royal Drive.
