Holy Saturday, April 11 Blessing of Easter Foods
At 11:30 am, we invite you to join in Swieconka, the Slavic Easter celebration.
"Deception and treachery, lust and adultery, ambition, jealousy, and murder-no this is not a soap opera. It's the content of the Books of Samuel. Few sections of the Bible are as shocking as the stories of Samuel, Saul, and David. The transition from the period of the judges to that of the monarchy is set out in all its splendor, its intrigue, and its scandal. In this presentation, we will explore the historical, literary and theological aspects of the Books of Samuel.'
Note: this program, while always open to all, will be of special interest to those parishioners who are participating in the Scripture Study groups starting again this Fall, since they have chosen the Books of Samuel as their focus.
Our presenter will again be Dr. Pauline Viviano, a retired Associate Professor of Theology from Loyola University in Chicago.
