Book of the Month - May and June 

Carlo Acutis: The First Millennial Saint by Nicola Gori

I'm very excited to introduce the Book of the Month for May and June of 2023, and it is a short biography of sorts that covers the brief life of perhaps one of the most modern Saints we've ever seen.  Blessed Carlo Acutis was born in 1991 in Italy, and his short yet extraordinary life of holiness is not only relatable but deeply inspiring to people of all ages.  We long for stories of authentic holiness, and Carlo's life is exactly that type of story.  From sports, to video games, from daily Mass and frequent confession to creating a website of Eucharistic miracles, please join us as we look deeper into Carlo's life in this insightful and short book (143 pages).  As always, you will have to purchase this book yourself (please contact us if you have monetary issues in this regard), but please also just come to the Book Discussion either way if you can, which will be held Wednesday, June 28th from 7:30 - 8:30 pm in the social hall. 

Thank you and God Bless you!
