Lent by filling acting and behind the scenes roles.
Presentation dates are Friday, March 23 at 7:00 pm at Holy Trinity Church and Friday, March 30 at 7:00 pm at
St. Rita. Practices will be Sundays, March 4, 11, and 18 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm. Please contact Elizabeth for more information and to sign up to help by March 1.

David the King

This spring, we will be offering a study of King David by noted author and video lecturer Bishop Robert Barron.  The New Testament foretold a son of David who would realize the fullness of Israelite kingship … but whose actual reign defied expectation. King David causes us to look back toward Adam’s kingship and forward toward Christ the King, seeing Christ as the fulfillment of the Davidic line and the realization of the Kingdom of God on earth.

Three separate sessions are offered beginning March 5, 7 & 8 and run for 7 weeks.
Groups meet on Monday mornings from 10-11:30 am, Wednesday evenings from 7-8:30 pm & Thursday evenings from 7-8:30 pm in Room 1. You can “Mix and Match”, attending any of the sessions in the same week.

Please email or call the parish office at 671-1100 and let us know which session you would like to attend. The cost of materials (workbook & study guide) is $15.
