January 06
2:30 PM to 3:30 PM

The next meeting will be Sunday January 6, 2019 from 2:30 to 3:30 Waiting for Christ: Meditations for Advent and Christmas

 

Based on writings of Blessed John Henry Newman, edited by Christopher O. Blum (Augustine Institute)
Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was one of the most beloved and inspirational preachers of his time. Originally an Anglican priest, Newman converted to Catholicism becoming a Catholic priest and Cardinal. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010. His depth of knowledge regarding Sacred Scripture and Catholic doctrine as well as the lives of the saints is revealed in his writings and sermons. This book contains daily readings based on Newman’s sermons and leads us through the liturgical seasons of Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany as we each experience our own personal “waiting for Christ”.

The St. Olaf Book Club meets monthly at the parish, in the Fleming Foyer.  The books cover a variety of topics, and all are invited!
If you would like assistance/suggestions as to where to obtain the books, contact Book Club coordinator Jeanne Krumpelmann at 612-722-4084
or kile0016@umn.edu.
