Exploring Advent with Luke

Four Questions for Spiritual Growth

An exploration of the events leading up to the birth of Christ. We will learn how Luke composed the first chapter of his gospel to deepen the understanding of the birth of Jesus and how meditating on the questions posed by its main characters, Zechariah, Mary, Elizabeth and the people in the Temple, spur us to personal reflection on disappointment, inadequacy, openness and trust.

Facilitated by Linda Borchardt on Mondays, November 24, December 1, 15 and 22 from 9:30-10:30 A.M. in the Faith Formation Office of the Parish Centre. RSVP to Linda by email or 314.878.2120. Please pick up your book before the first session.
