St. Bonaventure Lunch and Talk Series Presents…
So Great a Cloud of Witnesses
A Presentation on the Church Triumphant
What does it mean when we call someone a
Saint? How does one become a Saint? In the next four weeks, we will answer these questions and take an in-depth look into the lives and legacies of three
extraordinary Saints. This series will be both informative and deeply spiritual as we learn from those who loved Jesus so intensely. Each presentation will be given by Dave VanVickle, the parish Director of Evangelization.
The dates and topics are as follows:
Thursday, October 10th What is a Saint? The Spirit and Process of Sainthood
Thursday, October 17th St. Anthony of the Desert
Thursday, October 24th St. Thomas Aquinas...The Angelic Doctor
Thursday, October 31st Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta…The secret life and legacy
The Lunch and talk will begin promptly at 12:00pm and end by 12:50pm for those needing to get back to work. All are welcome, but you must have a reservation. Lunch is just $12. To make a reservation, email

We are all called to be saints. Come and learn how.
