We will also have book club on Feb. 7th @ 7pm at Faith@ Work

Our book is:  Where There Is Love, There Is God: A Path to Closer Union with God and Greater Love for Others. Subject:  Mother Teresa.

“Taken largely from her private lessons to her sisters,  Where There is Love, There is God, though not an exhaustive anthology of Mother Teresa’s teaching, nonetheless shows what she believed and taught about important issues that confront all people. Due to her constant interaction with people of diverse backgrounds, no life situation was foreign to her and in this book her role is primarily one of teacher and guide.”

Volunteers Needed for SOS

This year, as we have done in the past, St. Anastasia Parish will be supporting ‘host’ parishes that are assisting South Oakland Shelter (SOS) members and their needs.  If you are not familiar with SOS, they are an organization focused on helping people who find themselves in need of temporary shelter.  The individuals that are assisted are usually employed with the hope is that this short term assistance that will help them through a challenging time in their lives.  In many instances, this aid leads to them establishing a new lease on life.  A wonderful cause indeed.


That said, we are in need of volunteers on the weekend of 3/3/13 in Birmingham.  Volunteer positions needed are in transportation (drivers), food preparation, and overnight hosting.  If you are able to assist in some way please contact Greg Bright at or 248.396.7417
