Lenten Offerings for 2017
Lenten Reading: Wondrous Encounters by Richard Rohr
All are encouraged to join one of several small groups meeting weekly during Lent to “read, mark and inwardly digest” this beautiful collection of meditations on the daily readings for Lent. The book can be purchased from our bookstore. The meeting times for these book groups during Lent will be on Tuesdays at 1 p.m., Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 6 p.m. in Room 304.
