Thanksgiving Day
Thanksgiving Day Mass, Thursday, November 26 will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. instead of noon.
Advent Book Study
C.S. Lewis’s The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is a classic of children’s literature, but it is also meaningful for Christians of all ages because of the powerful themes in the novel that resonate with our faith – despair and hope, sin and redemption. Heidi Haverkamp’s Advent in Narnia: Reflections for the Season weaves together aspects of the book with passages from Scripture to provide meditations on the Season of Advent. 
 
Join us this Advent for a journey into the enchanted world of Narnia. We will have four weekly forums on Mondays, November 30, December 7, 14 and 21 at 6:30 p.m. to discuss Advent in Narnia. All sessions will be online (not in-person as previously announced).

Click here to order the book.
