You're invited - Lenten Faith Study Group
Every Wednesday Evening
February 17 (Ash Wednesday) - March 24
7:00 - 8:00 PM PT
Please join us for our first ever alumnae faith study. All are welcome. Please feel free to share this invite with family and friends connected to our Carondelet Community.
As we navigate our daily life and sometimes challenging times, we can lose sight of our faith as our anchor. Faith and community are a tangible part of our Carondelet experience. Lent provides us a beautiful opportunity to carve out important time for reflection. In that spirit, we would like to come together and remind one another of the light that surrounds us.

As a guide for our discussion, we've selected “Let us Dream: The Path to a Better Future" by Pope Francis. "In this uplifting and practical book, the preeminent spiritual leader explains why we must—and how we can—make the world safer, fairer, and healthier for all people now." 
Nancy Marshall Jordan '86 and Heather Gargaro Anton '88 will facilitate the discussion.
