Reflections on the Sermon on the Mount – Lent 2021

Lent is an opportunity to reflect on the many burdens and blessings we carry as individuals as well as those that we share as a church family and world community. On March 11th, 18th and 25th we will gather via Zoom to consider how we can answer the call given to us in the “Sermon on the Mount.” (Matthew 5 through 7:1-28 and Luke 6:17-49)

We will reflect on how we can more deeply live in accordance with Christ’s teachings in the face of the pandemic and deepening divisions in our country and the world. Christ has called us to be the salt of the earth, and a light to the world; what does that mean to you, today, as a Catholic American? Share your thoughts and ideas as we discuss how we can use our faith to guide us in actions that contribute to greater mercy and justice in our families, communities, and the world. We invite you to join us on our ongoing Lenten journey. Perhaps your participation in this reflective process could be a balm for you, your family and others in these challenging times.

The St. Thomas Social Concerns Ministry will host these discussions on three consecutive Thursday nights: March 11th, March 18th, and March 25th from 7:30pm to 9pm, via the Zoom platform. Call details and suggested reference materials will be emailed to you once you register. You may register for all three sessions at once; or up to the day before an individual session via
