The four-week Advent program using a study booklet based on Raymond E. Brown’s larger work “The Birth of the Messiah” began this week.
In order to make this study more accessible Louise Penney will be offering it on Sunday mornings at 9:00 am, December 8, 15 and 22 in the Sears Room. +John will be offering it on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 pm, December 4, 11, and 18 in the Guild Room. (We will combine weeks three and four on the 18th.)
“The infancy narratives in Matthew and Luke represent a developed Christology proclaimed through a reflection on the origin of Jesus. According to Father Brown these appealing stories of Jesus’ birth and early life are the entire gospel story in miniature.”
Please, let the Parish Office know if you are planning to attend so that we can have enough of the study guides available.
