A PARISH-WIDE BOOK STUDY
WHY ARE WE READING A BOOK?
Well, as a family, here at Christ the Redeemer, we find ourselves at an important moment in our history. What lies before us is an opportunity to unite our parish family around a common vision and mission. Where are we going as a parish? What will our future bring? What is "the plan?" All of these questions are good questions, and reading this book is our first step forward. If we are going to embrace our future as a parish we must do so together.
WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES FOR READING THIS BOOK?
Reading the book will help put things into context. It will help us understand where we are now. It will help us appreciate the reality of where the Catholic Church is now. It will unite us in a common language as we begin to have conversations about our future.
HOW CAN I GET A COPY?
Books are available at the Information Desk in the church vestibule or at the church office. The cost of the book is $17.00. If you can afford the investment we are appreciative of your purchasing the book. If you cannot afford the $17.00, we are happy to let you have one for free.
