Readings for November 27th

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 the Psalms 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

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.
