Women at the Well - Women's Group

Women of all ages are welcome to join our “Women at the Well” group. We meet weekly on Monday mornings between 10:15-11:15am on Zoom, to pray with the Book of Proverbs through Lectio Divina.

God made us for community, to share His love, so this is also a time for laughter, friendship, support, encouragement and spiritual growth.

If you are interested, please contact esmfaith@gmail.com

Monday Rosary

Please join us in praying the Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary on Mondays at 7 pm (St. Bernard's Church)

Tuesday Evening Lectio Divina Group - Diving into the Sunday Readings

The traditional monastic practice of Lectio Divina (Latin for “holy/divine reading”) provides a way to enter into Sacred Scripture as a living Word for our time. Lectio Divina becomes more about divine listening than divine reading when we take the time to do it. This is why we pray Lectio Divina — to become better listeners of the Lord, to hear more clearly what God is asking of us - opening ourselves to peace, gratitude, and living rooted in Christ.
