Convert to Christ:  the Call to Discipleship in the Sermon on the Mount

 Lent is a time to pause and take discipleship to heart.  You're invited to a guided group reading of the Sermon on the Mount in Saint Matthew's Gospel.  We will focus on the concrete grace and seriousness of Jesus's call to follow Him and what that means for us as individual disciples and as a community of the faith.

Praying the Gospels for Lectors
through Lent to Holy Week and Easter Vigil
