    of Philadelphia. Our guest presenter is Father Michael

    Thomas of Villanova Augustinians who is presently heading
    the cause for the canonization of Father Bill Atkinson. There is

    SUFFERING YET STILL BELIEVING
    Wednesday, March 29, 2017
    7:00 PM to 8:30 PM - Saint Jude Church
    Have you ever wondered why there’s so much suffering in the
    world and in our own lives? The Prophet, Job, also sought the
    answer to this poignant question. Ideal for the season of Lent,
    this presentation will offer an overview of the spiritual lessons
    from the Old Testament Book of Job. Join us as we take a
    deeper look into the make-up of this heroic character with the
    goal of pointing us toward the way of wisdom in our own
    lives! There is no cost to attend this event. Registration is
    encouraged at faith@stjudechalfont.org or 215-822-9225 (ext.
    234). We welcome Father Thomas Dailey, O.S.F.S., Professor
    of Theology at DeSales University, as our guest presenter.
