Parish Book Club Reminder: Book Club meets Wednesday March 29 at 11:00 AM in the Library or on line. Please Plan on joining us. There are two books for March. The first is the "Didache" or "The Teaching of the Apostles." This ancient text was considered for inclusion in New Testament. In some ways it can be considered the first catechism of the Christian Church. It is a short "book" but filled with interesting and spiritual teaching. There is not an author per se and can be ordered on line or through your local bookstore.
The second book is a collection of short stories from the Dover Thrift Editions. The book is edited by James Daley and is filled with amazing stories from Rudyard Kipling, Herman Melville, Thomas Mann, Katherine Mansfield. Read all or just a few of this collection of short stories.
Inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.

Holy is His Name – The Transforming Power of God’s Holiness, beginning in Lent, a twelve-week video/ book series by renowned author, Dr. Scott Hahn - Schleigh Library, Thursday evenings @6:50 pm - starts February 23, 2023. Catholics are taught to prize holiness—to admire it in others and to strive for it in their own lives. But we’re never quite told what holiness is. In Holy Is His Name: The Transforming Power of God’s Holiness in Scripture, Scott Hahn seeks to define the term... to help us better understand our relationship with holiness. Tracing the meaning of holiness first through the Old Testament and then the New, Hahn masterfully reveals how God gradually transmits his holiness to his people—through creation, right worship, and more—and ultimately transforms them through the sharing of his divine life. It is not too late to join!
A Spiritual Journey Through the Jewish Calendar with Rabbi Joseph Schonberger: Continuing Wednesday, March 1, 2023 at 7:00 PM Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center will sponsor an on line class studying and discussing the Exodus, the Ten Commandments, the Sinai Revelation, Purim and beginning Leviticus.
