Rediscover Catholicism

July 13, 20, & 27
Nativity Church Hall, 4 Green Street, Merrimac

About a year and a half ago, the Matthew Kelly book Rediscover Catholicism was widely distributed in both of the parishes of our collaborative for parishioners to read. It is our goal to revisit this book during the summer by inviting you to do some “summer reading!” Whether you read the book or not we invite you to join us on three Wednesday evenings, July 13, 20, and 27, at 7:00 p.m. in the Nativity Parish Hall, 4 Green Street, Merrimac as we develop some of the main themes of the book. Please come and see this as an opportunity to invite someone who might be enriched in “Rediscovering Catholicism.” Rumors are that strawberry shortcake will be served.

Matthew Kelly, author of Rediscover Catholicism, writes, “Catholicism is a treasure map: It may be old, but it still leads to treasure. Let us rediscover it together, and help others do the same.” Please find a copy of the book in the church vestibules, the Immaculate Conception Parish Center, or on your very own bookshelf and start reading for our three Wednesday evenings in July. We hope you will join Father George Morin and friends. Sign up by phone or email: Mary Bragg 978-465-8779,
