Book Clubs and Bible Studies
Are you looking for community? Are you looking for a place to share your thoughts and your faith? Check out some of the wonderful groups we have gathering throughout the year.
Weekly Scripture Study
This group gathers weekly for Mass and Rosary at the parish (and adoration once a month) followed by sharing and reflection on the upcoming Sunday readings. Using St. Charles Borromeo's MS Bible study as a start, sharing also includes lector notes, history, liturgical season and personal sharing.
What began as a Lenten practice nearly 10 years ago, this group is one of women, men, young, old, long-term and short-term members of various faith traditions. We are a family of believers who take each Mass as a serious learning, growing and living opportunity. We develop a deeper and more personal embrace of the Gospel with our awesome Lord and Savior.
It is a great way to enrich life each week!
Parish Book Club
We meet during the school year on the first and third Thursday of the month (with exceptions for holidays and Holy Days) about 8:45 in Parish Hall 1, shortly after daily Mass.
Everyone is welcome to come to our meetings every time, or just when a book interests them. Sometimes we have a half dozen people, other times we may have twenty or more.
The first week of the month we discuss a book. The third Thursday we meet and either read together from a religious or philosophical book, or discuss a book like that.

We are not a structured group. Sometimes readers may bring discussion questions or summaries.
Sometimes we have a snack and we usually have coffee.
