  • Book Group

    As autumn quickly turns to winter, we invite you to join a book group. The group will read and discuss the book Falling Upward by Richard Rohr.

    We’ll listen and explore what the Spirit is calling forth in our individual lives.
    The book group will meet every two weeks or once a month on Tuesdays from 9:15 AM – 10:15 AM in the St. Mary gathering space.
    The group gathered will decide the frequency of the meetings. The flow of the hour will be opening prayer, discussing the chapters using guided questions, and close with a prayer. The only cost is the purchase of the book Falling Upward.
    It costs between $14-$20, depending on where you purchase it. If you’re interested in this opportunity, please sign up in the back of church by the elevator or call/text the facilitator Caroline Coughlin Lampereur (715) 850-0816.
    Our first meeting will be Tuesday, Dec. 4th.
    Read “The Invitation to a Further Journey and Introduction” for this meeting. Looking forward to the connections and conversations ahead.
