Growing Deeper Together

Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life
with Marcellino D’Ambrosio, Jeff Cavins, and Edward Sri

Whether you are getting to know Jesus for the first time or have been His friend for a while, this series, filmed in the Holy Land, will be like a hometown visit with Jesus, seeing His life in the context of where He lived. Not all of us may be able to visit the Holy Land, but this series allows us to visit what St. Jerome called the 5th Gospel, the homeland of Jesus, giving us fresh insight into the accounts of His life recorded in the four Gospels of the New Testament. Come and get to know Jesus better.

Please note we will not gather on November 2 (due to the All Souls Day Mass) or during Thanksgiving week. The final session of the fall will be December 14. Childcare will be available.
