Discovering Christ Starts on Thursday!

Dear Friends,

The first session of our 7-week program – Discovering Christ – will begin this coming Thursday evening, April 12 at 6:45 in the OMGC Social Center.  My thanks to the 13 members of our team who have worked so hard during these months of preparation! 

We will begin with a sit-down supper (no cost). We will have some time to pray together. We will watch a 30-minute DVD about the meaning of life.  And we will have a friendly group discussion for about 45 minutes.  We promise to finish promptly at or before 9:15.

By now, you have probably heard me or Kevin Potts speak about the program.  About four years ago I introduced this ministry into my previous parish, Our Lady of Good Counsel in Staten Island, New York.  There and in numerous other parishes it has helped many people to come to a deep, meaningful encounter with Jesus Christ, or to deepen their relationship with Him.

If you’d like to join us, we need to know how many to prepare supper for, so please call the Parish Office at 601-525-0147, or register online at http://omgcparish.org/DC.  As of right now (Monday night) we’re expecting over 30.

Hope to see many of you there!

Peace,
Fr. Liam

Lenten Meditation Book

Liturgical Press has published a Lenten meditation book written by OMGC’s very own Michelle Francl-Donnay:

Not by Bread Alone 2018

We purchased a large number of the books for use of our parishioners, but we ran out of them and the publisher is sold out. 

It’s still possible to order the e-Book in various formats (Kindle, Nook, PC, Mac and others) from the publisher for 99 cents:
