11th Annual Big Get Together: Saturday, September 8, 2012
We had a great Big Get Together at St. Thomas the Apostle Parish in Crystal Lake, IL on Saturday. As an important activity to recognize the support in the Rockford Diocese, this was the 11th Big Get Together held in the area. Led by Barb Wheeler and fueled by the energy of 20 past mission trippers from the parish, the event hit on every cylinder. It was great in expressing the spirituality, conviviality and productivity for our work! We want to thank the THP community in the Rockford Diocese, Monsignor Daniel Hermes and Fr. Jerome Koutnik, and the wonderful parishioners of St. Thomas the Apostle Parish. We also want to thank those Board Members and Volunteer Alumni who traveled and made an effort to be together with our community.
Deacon Patrick Moynihan spoke at the Rockford College Forum on Thursday, September 6, 2012, presenting “On Being a Catalyst for Transformational Development: Subsidiarity, Solidarity & the Catholic Missionary” at the Clark Arts Center – Maddox Theatre.
Deacon Patrick Moynihan spoke at Rockford College about the fundamental issues facing post-quake Haiti more than two years after the January 12, 2010 earthquake. The lecture addressed the rise of the Aid-Industrial Complex and the marginalization of the Haitian government; the well-intentioned but counterproductive programs that impede human development and perpetuate the status quo rather than encouraging systemic development; the value of Transformational Development guided by the Catholic missionary principles of Subsidiarity and Solidarity; and the importance of education as a fundamental tool in stabilizing the Nation of Haiti.
Through his examination of this complex nexus of issues Deacon Moynihan makes the case for what the country of Haiti truly needs at this seminal moment in its history.
