For this Lenten season, we invite you to join one of the study groups now forming— or you are welcome to gather people you already know and begin a small group of your own. The sign-up sheets are on the table in the back of the church. Groups will be reading Amazed & Afraid from The WORD Among Us Press. As quoted by the publisher, “The stories and questions in this book will help you get to know Jesus yourself…you’ll see what He did, hear what He said, and meet the riveting characters who chose to follow Him.” Study groups are responsible for ordering their own books priced at $10.

REMINDER! Eucharistic Adoration is every Wednesday during Lent 9:00 am – 9:00 pm and Benediction is 9:00 pm at the St. Norbert Chapel.
