As we prepare for Veterans Day Tuesday, November 11, we’ll devote our Christian formation hour next Sunday, November 9 to discussing two short stories by Iraq War veteran Phil Klay from his recent book, Redeployment. Where is God in the midst of brutal conflict? What is the role of a military chaplain when soldiers and Marines are having the worst experiences imaginable? Join us for our conversation at 9 a.m. in the Bishop’s Room. If you wish to participate, send an e-mail to, and Fr. John will send you the two stories. Because of their realistic nature, this conversation is for those 18 and over.
