The Lamb’s Supper: The Mass as Heaven on Earth by Scott Hahn

The Lamb’s Supper is a very transformative and insightful book as Scott Hahn uses his personal conversion story to Catholicism along with his deep scriptural and theological knowledge to open up the book of Revelation to show how the Mass is meant to be an experience of heaven on earth!  Have you ever wondered if the Book of Revelation is accessible even with its apocalyptic style of writing?  There is a lot going on in that book, but there are many beautiful truths communicated by St. John in his inspired writing such as how the Mass is an eternal event of Jesus’ love offered to the Father.  In addition, this book reveals the meaning behind so many of the prayers of the Mass, and it can certainly bring the Mass into a greater light and fuller reality.  If you want to get more out of the Catholic Mass or have a greater understanding of what the Catholic Mass is meant to be for those attending and participating, please join us in reading this book or even just joining in the discussion.  God Bless you!

Please email or call the office to be put on the list and receive the Zoom meeting info towards the end of every month!

​​The Book of the Month - June

"The Book of the Month series here at Our Lady of the Visitation Catholic Church is a faith formation opportunity for anyone at anytime!  The book will be selected by Fr. Ben and published about two weeks before each month begins, and this gives everyone time to purchase it if they so desire for that particular month.  There is no commitment, and you may join in or choose to forego any month and at any time.  The meeting for each book  is at the end of the month, and it will be offered both in person and on Zoom. The details and reminder are sent for each meeting are sent out via email. To join this email list, please contact the parish office or myself directly (if you join this email list, there is no commitment to have to come  to each meeting!)   You can certainly join the meetings even if you didn't read part or any of the book, and the basic summary and Q&A will be published afterwards online.  Reading books is one way God can transform our hearts! God Bless you, and let's pray for each other during this time!  - Fr. Ben Dunkelberger."

Please mark your calendar for Saturday July 10th.       The parish will be hosting a mini retreat from 9am-3pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
