May 31 – The Joy of the Beatitudes
With this lecture, we’ll contemplate the particular joy of Jesus Christ, who is meek and humble of heart. To do this, we’ll study the Beatitudes, both as His revelation of His Heart and His invitation to each of us. Again, we’ll meet at 6:45 pm in the Church of St. Vincent Ferrer.

June 14 – The Joy of Praise
With this final lecture of the series, we’ll take up the great theme of praise and thanksgiving at the heart of Christian life. Our aim will be to better fulfill our shared vocation to live to the praise of the Father’s glory.
