Lenten Book Study We will be reading and studying Pope Francis’ recent encyclical, Laudato Si — On Care for Our Common Home, which raises exciting challenges and basically asks us to reconsider the way in which we live on a planet beset with climate change, limited resources and global inequities. Most remarkable is its loving and hopeful tone. The study will take place on Tuesdays, March 1, 8, and 15 from 5:00-6:30 PM. Watch the bulletin.
