"Sober Intoxication of the Spirit" Lenten Groups
Small Groups offers a wonderful opportunity to connect with other parishioners while enriching our faith. Those involved in small groups consistently cite a greater feeling of community as well as better clarity in what it means to live out their faith on a daily basis.
Through prayer, fellowship, and discussion, come explore the newness of life found in the Spirit by joining a small group this Lent!
We will be reading Sober Intoxication of the Spirit: Filled with the Fullness of God by Raniero Cantalamessa, O.F.M. Cap. Fr. Cantalamessa is an internationally acclaimed speaker and writer, who in 1980, was appointed as the preacher to the papal household and continues to serve in this capacity. In his book, he reminds the reader of the immeasurable power of the Holy Spirit which is made available to each baptized believer. As seen in Sacred Scripture and the Church Fathers, the Holy Spirit is the action of God, made available through the sacraments---most especially in the Eucharist--- that purifies us of sin, renewing the spirit and enlightening the mind. Grow in your own understanding of the Holy Spirit, the meaning of Pentecost, the charisms, and the unique gifts that God wants to bestow on you in service of His Church.
Small Groups meet on different days and times, choose one that works best for your schedule.
BOOKS COST $10.00 AND CAN BE PURCHASED FROM THE PARISH OFFICE OR CHURCH BOOK RACK.
