Bishop Cupich among presenters at Pasco parish’s cultural festival
the Inland Register
(From the February 20, 2014 edition of the Inland Register)
In collaboration with a wide variety of individuals and groups from around the Northwest and the world, St. Patrick Parish in Pasco is eager to offer a new, free, cultural festival open to the entire public.
“Tri-Cities Encounter 2014: Beyond the Barricade” will take place on Saturday and Sunday, March 15 and 16, at Richland High School, in Richland, Wash.
Through exhibits, music, performances and art, the event examines the question” “What unites us, as persons, cultures and nations?”
“Will it ever be possible to obtain this brotherhood by human effort alone? As society becomes ever more globalized, it makes us neighbors but does not make us brothers. Reason by itself is capable of grasping the equality between men and of giving stability to their civic coexistence, but it cannot establish fraternity.” – Pope Benedict XVI, Caritas in Veritate.
Convinced that through a real encounter with other persons we can find something greater than ourselves, Tri-Cities Encounter 2014 will introduce a number of charitable and cultural initiatives.
Some of the speakers, performers and exhibits that will be presented include:
• Bishop Blase Cupich, on “Pope Francis, Beyond the Barricade.” Saturday, 4 p.m.
• Tall Heights: Nationally Acclaimed Folk duo from Boston.
Among the exhibits will be “A Mile in Their Shoes,” on empathy and service beyond borders, from Catholic Charities.
