Scripture Reflection Gathering—
You are invited to reflect on the Sunday readings for March with members of our community. Our next gathering will be Saturday February 29th at 9am in the parish office. Whether or not you are able to prepare, you can always gain insight and share thoughts on the Sunday readings that have touched your heart. If you can, take time to prepare by reviewing the Sunday readings from March 1st to March 29th. This is a great way to grow during the season of Lent. You may choose to concentrate on any of the readings, but please consider the Psalms provided during this time of the year. Also read a few versus before the chosen reading and a few after. You may want to read a little more to get the idea of what the Gospel writer is trying to say.
