Have you ever wondered why we as Catholics honor Christ and venerate Mary and the Saints with statues and images in our Churches and our homes? Or why we place relics in the altar of a Church and honor the bones of martyrs and saints? Or why the Church encourages fasting and mortification as part of our spiritual journey? Is there a biblical foundation for such Catholic practices? If curious enough, then join us on Thursday, September 28th, at 7PM in the rectory for the on-going discussion of Dr. Scott Hahn’s book, Signs of Life (pages 158 thru 181). All are invited.

While our Catholic Book Discussion group finished the book, Beautiful Mercy, the real “work” now begins – living the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy every day whether convenient or inconvenient. The Jubilee Year of Mercy is rapidly coming to a close – but living lives of Mercy and Compassion goes on for all of us. Our Book Discussion will resume in January. Members are looking for a specific book or theme to read. If anyone has any ideas, please share them with a member of the Discussion Group or speak with Father Peter.
Following are the study outlines we used with “Beautiful Mercy”.
Following are the study outlines we used with “The Jesuit Guide To Almost Everything”.
Following are the study outlines we used with “My Life with the Saints”.
