Lenten Book Discussion: Who Was Jesus?

Join fellow parishioners on three Wednesdays in Lent, Feb. 24, March 10, and March 24 at 7:30 pm for a Zoom discussion on Jesus Before Christianity by Albert Nolan, O.P. We'll explore who was the historical Jesus and what can that person teach us about our lives in the 21st century. What choices did Jesus make in his life that led him to his death in Jerusalem?
