Reading Catholic author Flannery O’Connor’s short stories evokes various reactions from people.  O’Connor’s style is described as Southern Gothic.  Her stories often include grotesque, morally-flawed characters and can include incidents of violence.  In her own words, ““The truth does not change according to our ability to stomach it.”  The challenge for the reader is to confront the issues at hand, their own reactions, and the opportunity for God’s grace.  Despite being written over 60 years ago, many of the issues, prejudices, and sin are still present in our world today.  The group meets on Tuesdays at 7 PM online to discuss a different short story each week.  The discussion is casual, not an in-depth study.  No additional materials are required other than to access your own copies of the stories – either in print or online. Join in as many of the scheduled sessions as you like.  The sessions are on-going.  Please email mdougherty@stjosephodenton.org if you would like to join in.

The group gathers on Thursdays at 10 AM to examine the Mass readings for the upcoming weekend. Bring your Bibles, bring your questions, and bring your answers. Bring your love of Sacred Scripture!
During the COVID-19 restrictions, the group is meeting online via Zoom.  For more information, and join information, please contact Adriane Irving at 410-903-0376 or adrianei09@comcast.net.
