NEW Program   

Read ,Engage And Discuss books in a different way. We will use the Benedictine practice of reading,  listening and discussing with "the ear of our heart". We will share how the stories/books spiritually impact our lives and listen to the wisdom of others. We hope this leads us into a deeper personal growth. Please join us and share your wisdom.  Books are not provided but are sold at Benet Gifts.   Although this is a FREE program, DONATIONS ARE ACCEPTED. Please register online for planning purposes.
