Lenten Series – Scripture Reflection

PLEASE NOTE THE SCHEDULE UPDATE FOR THE REMAINDER OF LENT!

The Adult Faith Formation ministry is offering several opportunities each week during Lent to gather with fellow parishioners to read and reflect upon the upcoming Sunday Gospel. These informal gatherings are a great way to deepen your faith, meet new people, and pray in community.

This is not a Bible Study. No prior experience is needed and there is no homework! We will prayerfully read scripture and listen for the quiet whispers of our Lord.

For this series our motto is “No sign up – just show up!” Come to the session that is best for you each week.

Groups will meet as follows:

Tuesday evenings at 7:30 pm beginning Feb. 28

Friday mornings at 11:00 am beginning March 3

All sessions will be held in Rooms A/B in the Lower Level of the Church and will last approximately one hour. Check the bulletin for weekly updates.

For questions or more information, please contact Tracy Liston at tliston@optonline.net or 908-393-4456.
