Couples meet every other Wednesday at 4:15 PM. in Café Carmel. They review the Gospel and the readings from the Old and/or New Testament that will be read at the following weekend Masses. They discuss what the readings mean to them and how they apply to their lives today. They also read “Exploring the Sunday Readings” which helps stimulate meaningful and rewarding discussion. Some participants also bring Bible commentaries which put the readings in context and further enhance discussion.
The emphasis is on Bible sharing and not Bible knowledge or study. Thus, the discussion takes place in a non-threatening environment. Everyone is on equal footing and is encouraged to participate in the discussion. The meetings end with prayers of petition.
