Life with the Saints starts this fall
The Women’s Circle will be meeting again the fall, this time on Wednesdays. We will be starting September 18, meeting 7-9 pm, every second Wednesday. We will be reading My Life with the Saints by James Martin, an accessible, engaging book of essays on the author’s personal experience with holy men and women ranging from Ignatius of Loyola to Dorothy Day. We will meet in a restaurant (location forthcoming) for a lively discussion and chance to get to know each other. Please email Laurna at Laurna.firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to let her know you’re interested.
Prepare for Aug 4th by grappling with greed and refocusing on the treasures we have in God.
