Read, Learn, Grow — Life is Messy Book Study

“The mess of life is both inevitable and unexpected.” Expand your Faith in 2022 by joining us for a 6 week virtual book study where we will explore Matthew Kelly’s latest book, Life is Messy. “This is quite simply the right book at the right time.”

And a great opportunity to connect with fellow parishioners AND, some of our brothers and sisters from Annunciation of the Lord Parish in Ottawa, will be joining us.

Our book study will be hosted on Zoom and will begin Monday, January 17 at 7:00 pm and will run until Monday, February 28 2022.
