ST. CASIMIR PRAYER GROUP . . . APRIL 29, 2018 . . . Church of the Holy Sepulcher Tomb of Christ Restoration. Presentation by Jon Meyer, parishioner at Mount Calvary Catholic Church, Diocese of the Personal Ordinariate of the Chair of St. Peter
Our speaker made a pilgrimage to Israel in 2013 and visited “the holiest site in Christianity” many times, to include the Tomb of Christ, which is protected by the Edicule or structure that preserves the tomb. In 2016 the Edicule underwent an archaeological restoration after a historical agreement was reached by the governing religious authorities of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher. Jon will discuss the history of the church, the structural problems that had to be addressed as part of the restoration, and next steps in preventing further deterioration. He will also relate to how his pilgrimage was instrumental in entering into full communion with the Catholic Church. Please join us for Jon’s presentation, as well as coffee and pastries Sunday April 29th following the 10:00 AM Mass in the Cupertino Center. ALL ARE WELCOME! For more information email Molly at email@example.com or Ken at kbauer@wrallp .com.
