Announcing Our Lenten Read-Along

Finding God in the Mess Lenten Read-Along

Plan now to join a special Lenten read-along with Loyola Press. We’ll be reading Finding God in the Mess: Meditations for Mindful Living at a relaxed pace that will give us time to savor what we read during the weeks of Lent.

The book, by Jim Deeds and Brendan McManus, SJ, helps us learn to pause, to take time to be with God, to contemplate our lives, and to recognize God’s presence in all of it, especially the hard times.
