Scripture reflections are held every Thursday morning from 9:00 – 10:30 a.m. in our Assisi Center. Because of Christmas, there will be no Scripture on Thursdays, December 22 and 29, but will resume on January 5, 2017. At these sessions there is reflection and sharing on the next Sunday’s Scripture readings. It is a good way to prepare for our Sunday Mass celebration and to better understand and apply the Word of God to our lives. The sessions are led by Sr. Marilyn Renninger, OSF. All are welcome. No fee and no need to register.
