The Kingdom of Happiness begins in Oct. at St. Leo the Great: For 8 weeks, escape the kingdom of man, expose the “anti-beatitudes” and dive deeper than ever before to discover TRUE happiness Thursday evenings October 11-December 13, 7-8:30pm. The Kingdom of Happiness is a new 8-part parish program that unveils Jesus’ plan for happiness in the Beatitudes. In a world that offers fleeting pleasures in place of true happiness and false promises that actually lead us away from happiness, it’s time more than ever to turn to the Beatitudes and enter into the Kingdom of Happiness. Send $20 cash or check payable to St. Leo the Great, 885 Sweet Home Rd., Amherst, NY 14226. Questions contact Adult Faith Director Dawn M. Iacono 835-8905×12 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life.

Starting September 22, twice monthly through Dec 15 on Sat. mornings 9-10:30am
