POCASSET, Mass. — St. John the Evangelist Parish in Pocasset will be the site of a Day of Reflection sponsored by the Diocesan Council of Catholic Women on April 9 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The purpose of the day is for women to celebrate the mercy of God within their families.
The guest speaker will be Alicia Ambrosio, a senior producer for the Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation based in Toronto and Montreal, Canada. She will be speaking on the importance of media on Marriages and family life.
Ambrosio is the host of the weekly television series, “Vatican Connections.” On its website, Salt and Light asks viewers, “Ever wonder what goes on in the Vatican on a daily basis? What does the pope do? Who helps him? Why does it matter? Get answers to all these questions on ‘Vatican Connections’ with Alicia Ambrosio. Over four seasons, Alicia has brought you the inside scoop on what happens behind Vatican walls.”
Vancouver, Canada native Ambrosio went to Rome and finished her graduate studies at the Salesian Pontifical University and worked with CNS in Rome.
After returning to Canada, she joined the Salt and Light team in 2008.
