  • Racial Justice & Reconciliation. SIGN UP!  If you are not one of the many who have already attended as session, check your calendar for which Sunday you can attend a small-group discussion on the topic.  Sign up for one of the remaining sessions, beginning with today’s session, or those scheduled for March 26, or April 2. Remember to come  to the home group primed with thoughts and questions on the topic from your reading/viewing of materials on the Resources listas well as from your own experience. The Lenten small-group discussions will be followed on the Sunday after Easter  (April 23) with a parish-wide luncheon meeting, and in May with a community meeting open to the general public (TBA).
