St. Anne Parish will present Bishop Robert Barron's Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues program during each Soup & Sandwich Supper. Pride, envy, anger, sloth, greed, gluttony and lust: these “seven deadly sins” are patterns of dysfunction that keep us separated from God and ultimately lead to unhappiness. Join us as we embark on Bishop Barron's exploration of these seven sinful patterns and also learn how practicing countervailing virtues can break the cycle of sin.
