Intended to be a one time only, four-week session, Evenings for Women is now in its 28th year. Meeting in the Ark (2nd floor of the Fr. Connelly Parish Center), on the third Tuesday of each month, from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm, we are led by Sister Katherine in a spiritually uplifting ninety minutes. One night, we might analyze a chapter in depth and find we all agree or possibly that we disagree with the author. Another night, the chapter might be a springboard to a related or possibly even an unrelated discussion. Then there are nights which are truly inspired and we never even mention the book!
The wealth of experience and knowledge that the women bring to the group is tremendous. From new moms to great-grandmoms, the core group of usually 15 to 20 women, guarantees a lively exchange of ideas. Grounded in our religious faith, bonded by our love of God—we invite you to join us in a laugh, a cry, a prayer, and usually a good dessert! If you want to be uplifted and renewed, have we got an evening - an Evening for Women - for YOU!
The book for this year is Around the Table by R. Scott Hurd and can be purchased from the parish office. This book helps the reader to discover the meaning of the Eucharist through the unique and imaginative stories of fourteen biblical characters. Hurd incorporates traditions of the Church and his own lifelong fascination with Eucharistic mystery we celebrate today.
