Lenten programs and resources

Signs of Life Parish discussion beginning week of March 10

This Lent we have five families which have agreed to host conversations around the book Signs of LifeThe book seeks to familiarize Catholics with the roots and values of Catholic sacraments and devotional practices.  Some who know the practices, may better appreciate their origins and meaning others may discover hidden gems of the Catholic experience.  Most of all, we hope that it will help you find ways of drawing God into your daily lives.

Ask yourselves

Has this practice been part of your daily life.

Have you learned anything new about this?

Have you come to appreciate this practice in new ways.

Please pick up a book and start reading the introduction and number 1, 2 and 3.
