Update on Adult Formation in Lent

Dear Saint James’ Learners,

I have attached an updated version of the information sheet for “Learning More about Jesus and Holy Week.”  On Sunday, March 12, we will discuss Chapters 2, 3, and 4.  I have just received another shipment of books and we’ve got room for more participants, so come join us if you are not already on board.

Faithfully,

Randolph
