Great Books and God, July 15

July 15, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Ignite a flame under your summer…

Join Great Books and God at 6:30 pm on Tuesday, July 15th when we meet to discuss The Church of Mercy by Pope Francis (Loyola Press, 2014).

This first Vatican-authorized book by Pope Francis is a collection of his speeches, homilies, and papers that were presented during the first year of his papacy and provides insights into his vision for the Catholic Church.  Pope Francis’s deep wisdom reminds us that the Church must move beyond its own walls and joyfully bring God’s mercy wherever suffering, division, or injustice exist.

The Church of Mercy encourages each of us to ignite the flame within to help share the light of Christ and revitalize the Church.

Great Books and God is an “open enrollment” book club.  Members choose the books and you can join at any time.  If you have questions, contact Deacon Dean at deanvaeth@comcast.net or just drop in on Tuesday, July 15th in the Parish Center at 6:30pm for discussion and light snacks.  Bring the book.  Bring a friend.
