Book Group

Book Group is scheduled to meet Wednesday mornings from 10:15-11:15 am at the Parish Center, Oak Bluffs. They read and discuss contemporary Catholic books. Currently they are on Zoom, but will return to in-person soon.

The new book, starting March 2024, is: “Catholics in Exile” by Dr. Scott Hahn & Brandon McGinley. From the day the Gospel dawned in the world, Christians have occupied a remarkable place—citizens of heaven, but heirs to the world; loving the world, yet persecuted by the world. A second-century author remarked that Christians are to the world what the soul is to the body. These authors demonstrate that the same power that converted the world in the first century is still converting the world today. The message of this book is at once bracingly realistic and hopeful. Christians today are living in exile. But Christians have always lived as strangers in a strange land—and have nevertheless prevailed. It is a timeless message, but calibrated here precisely for our time.

You are welcome to join at anytime as the books are read and discussed at each gathering. We would love to have you!
