While book clubs can enrich the mind, the Spirituality Reading Club also explores the heart and the stretches the spirit. SRC challenges people to reach beyond a surface relationship with God to explore other’s ideas and commentaries on our Christian faith.
SRC members read and study one book per month to strengthen their spirituality and dialogue about the viewpoints of well-known Christian authors. In a group setting, participants will share their thoughts about a book’s topic and answer questions that tie it back to faith, a relationship with God and living in the world today. The Rev. Orrin Halepeska, parochial vicar at CtR, leads the group in discussion. He facilitates deep conversation that allows participants to express their beliefs and find answers to tough questions the books may present.
The club meets at 10 a.m. on Monday and 7 p.m. on Tuesday during the fourth week of every month. Please read the book before class each month.
To sign up, contact Margaret Carnicle, Director of Family Life, at email@example.com or 281-469-5533.
Next in MarchGod will always give us more than we ask for. Our next book will be "The Way of Perfection" by Teresa of Avila. It will great during our Lenten journey. March's meetings will be at 10 a.m. beginning March 24 or 7 p.m. beginning March 25.
Millions have read and benefited from this book since it was first written nearly 500 years ago. St. Teresa's message of humility, simplicity, persistence, and faith is replete with language that is at times earthy, and full of self deprecating humor.
All are welcome to the group. Please read the book before class each month. Please register at the start of each month, so you don’t miss out on the thought-provoking discussion and fruitful relationships.
