Second Sunday

Second Sunday is a community circle in which women and men and families gather to reflect together on the Sunday scriptures. Second Sunday began among the Sisters of St. Joseph in three community houses.

We reflect on the Sunday gospel and nourish one another's lives with this sharing.  We share bread and wine and lift up the prayers of all gathered and concerns for the world. Following, we drink coffee and enjoy treats. All are welcome and invited to come when you can.  The group is a new blessing each month.
