Book Club Reminder (St. Joseph, Aug 2018)

Greetings Readers! Reminder our meeting is fast upon us in a couple of days, this Monday, August 13th to discuss Joseph: The Man Who Raised Jesus by Fr. Gary Caster, at 7:00 pm in the one story Conference Center off the lower parking lot.

This is not a book that goes much if at all into how Joseph is depicted in art, pious legend and practice, or daily life at the time of Christ. It’s catechetical.

Next month September 10th is In This House of Brede by Rumer Godden.

We need to pick books for October, November, and January at our meeting. Also, if anyone can check Netflix (or has the DVD!) maybe we could hold a Diary of a Country Priest movie watching party.

Here is some art from This is from the 1960s and is in the Church of St. Lawrence (today’s feast day!) in Florence. Happy Reading, Karla
