Encounter Christ This Lent Read, study and pray as a parish family.   All are welcome and encouraged to join our SJ Parish Family as we read and discuss Scott Hahn's book, The Lamb's Supper during Lent this year.   This book reveals the early Christians' key to understanding the Mass: the Book of Revelation.   This book will help all of us see the Mass with new eyes, pray the Liturgy with a new heart and enter into the Mass more fully and actively.
You are welcome to read and study on your own or with friends and we will also have small group time slots available for those who would like to study and pray in community.   In addition, the Good News! will feature questions and discussion topics as we progress in the book and in our Lenten journey.   If you are looking for a way to deepen your prayer life, reconnect with God, and gain a new understanding of worship, join us this Lent as we study and pray as a parish family.
