During this season of Lent, a Book Club is starting. See details below:


A Book Club to Enter into the Experience of Lent and Easter

Lent and Holy Week opens the writings of Thomas Merton in easily digestible pieces and eloquently pairs them with the words of other great spiritual thinkers. Designed for use between Ash Wednesday and Easter, this booklet offers readers an accessible introduction to contemplative dialogue and is built around eight compelling Lenten themes:

  • Week of Ash Wednesday: Where Do We Turn for Forgiveness?
  • First Week of Lent: Living More Deeply in Christ
  • Second Week of Lent: A Season for Compunction and Tears
  • Third Week of Lent: In All Things, Always Seeking God
  • Fourth Week of Lent: Choosing with Christ to Love the World
  • Fifth Week of Lent: In the Service of Peace through Humility and Prayer
  • Holy Week: Returning to the Source of our Unity in Christ
  • The Resurrection of the Lord: Liberated to Redeem the World

Our first meeting will be on Monday, March 4th, 2019 from 4:00-5:30 pm up at Montfort House.

To register please contact Lisa Hudkins at 860-379-1708 or at 627huds@gmail.com Please bring a journal with you for taking notes or reflections. Books will be available for purchase ($5.95) at the first meeting.
