The Chosen

The Chosen is a multi-season series TV show about the life of Jesus Christ.  It allows us to see Jesus through the eyes of those who were his first disciples.  It’s free and available as an App by just searching for The Chosen.  The first season is available and future seasons are being worked on.  In the first season the Lord’s call and the subsequent following of Peter, Mary Magdalene and Matthew are beautifully portrayed.  Watching The Chosen could be a good way to grow in friendship with Jesus during this Lenten season.

Thursday Morning Zoom Bible Study

A group of sustaining members gather on Zoom at 9 a.m. on Thursdays to discuss the upcoming Sunday Mass readings, especially the Gospel passage.  This group has been meeting for a number of years, but welcomes new members.  If interested to get on the email list for the Zoom link, please contact Sue Ripp,
