Thu – Book Club

CATHOLIC BOOK DISCUSSION GROUP: Our Catholic Book Discussion Group will meet this Thursday, June 27, at 7PM in the rectory. Our reflection will center of Chapter 5, the final chapter, of Pope Francis’ Apostolic Exhortation, Rejoice and Be Glad. In this chapter, Pope Francis warns against “mediocrity” in our spiritual journeys and encourages us to be aware that “God may be offering us something more, but in our comfortable inadvertence, we do not recognize it.” An opportunity for participants to reflect upon and share what the “something more” is that God may be demanding of us as the spiritual journey goes on. Participants are also going to reflect upon the spiritual life of our Parish Community here at St. Aloysius Gonzaga for our Holy Father wrote that a parish is “a God-enlightened space in which to experience the hidden presence of the Risen Lord.” There is a need to discuss how we can together – through prayer and ministry – make St. Al’s even more “Godenlightened space”. Any ideas? Join us Thursday evening. Everyone is invited and bring a friend.
