The Tysons Chapter of CBN had a wonderful kick-off breakfast on Thursday, February 27 at Maggiano's in Tysons II. Fr. Paul Scalia was the speaker and he kept the audience at attention with historical perspective on the Temptation of Christ, and insightful remarks on how this should help us understand what and why we are called to Abstain, Pray and do works of Mercy during Lent.
In addition, Fr. Scalia explained that his recent book contains sermons and speeches given by famous priests during times of historical church crises. His vivid depictions of what must have been happening at the time were amusing and relatable.
Attended by almost 30 Members and Guests representing various businesses from around and near Tysons Corner, the Chapter appears headed for a central role in CBN activities. Next month's meetings, also planned for Maggiano's, will have Dale Fickett, CEO of RVA Works, to speak on the importance of supporting entrepreneurial goals of our immigrant community, and how we can help.
