ST. CHARLES WOMEN’S COUNCIL TO HOST LAURA SOBIECH,
AUTHOR OF FLY A LITTLE HIGHER, A MEMOIR ABOUT HER SON, ZACH SOBIECH
St. Charles Borromeo Women’s Council will present an evening with Laura Sobiech, mother of the late Zach Sobiech, who captured the attention of millions around the world with his song “Clouds” that became a No. 1 hit just after his death in May 2013 at age 18 from a rare form of bone cancer. Laura will speak at the Women’s Council Connect, Tuesday, October 14, at 7pm in Doran Hall, St. Charles Borromeo Church, 2739 Stinson Blvd. NE in St. Anthony.
Laura, a member of St. Michael’s Church in Stillwater, will share Zach’s story and how the family’s Catholic faith and Zach’s embrace of redemptive suffering carried them through to ultimately see God’s higher purpose. She offers inspiration not only to other parents facing the death of a child, but to everyone in all seasons of life determined to live joyfully and in the present. The evening will include a short video, talk and book-signing. Refreshments will be served. A freewill donation at the door will be taken to cover costs. Call 612-419-7677 for more information.
