Christ came to call everyone, but He had a special devotion to those on the margins. If He were walking the earth today, He would likely have a ministry joyfully dedicated to our LGBT brothers and sisters. Here at the St. John-St. Paul Collaborative, we can be His hands and feet. Join us as we embark on a four-week study of Fr. James Martin, SJ’s essential book, “Building A Bridge: How the Catholic Church and the LGBT Community Can Enter into a Relationship of Respect, Compassion, and Sensitivity.”
Meetings will be facilitated by Megan Czerwinski. Megan studied theology at the University of Notre Dame and has been a freelance writer for Notre Dame’s website Grotto Network. She has also facilitated women’s Bible studies and serves as a Religious Education teacher here at our Collaborative. She is equally passionate about two things: learning more about her faith and helping every single person to realize how wildly and extravagantly God loves them.
Let us come together as a parish collaborative to explore the many ways we can show this love to all of God’s children.
Fr. Martin’s book can be purchased on Amazon or at local bookstores.
Meetings will be held on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm in the Collaborative Boardroom at the St. John Parish Center (39 Washington St. Wellesley.) The four-week schedule is as follows:
May 10 – Week One: First Lane of the Bridge (first half of the chapter “A Two Way Bridge”)
May 17 – Week Two: Second Lane of the Bridge (second half of the chapter “A Two Way Bridge”)
May 24 – Week Three: Scripture Study Part I (first half of the chapter “Biblical Passages for Reflection and Meditation”)
May 31 – Week Four: Scripture Study Part II (second half of the chapter “Biblical Passages for Reflection and Meditation”)
