Reservations available for Parish Retreat 'The Bible: A Love Story'

The Bible is, above all, a love story... a Divine Romance! The theme of marriage runs throughout the sacred scriptures, starting with the marriage of Adam and Eve in the Garden, and culminating in the marriage of Christ and the Church in Revelation, with the crown jewel in the center...the Song of Songs.

The next Parish Retreat will explore these themes and more with speaker Bill Donaghy. The retreat takes place December 14th at 2 p.m. in the Parish Center and reservations are now being accepted.

How is it that we too often see the Bible as a kind of Divine Rule Book or cold collection of ethics? Is there a beautiful truth we've been missing, or perhaps one so beautiful we fear to come closer to it? Come and see the scriptures come alive as never before. Come to the wedding feast where Divinity marries humanity!
