Over the years of St. Vincent’s summer series, we made our way through the books of the Tanakh – the Law, Prophets, and Writings of the Hebrew scriptures.
Since then, we’ve used the summer series to focus on the Eucharist, on Pope Francis’ call in Laudato Si to care for Creation, and on elements of the Mass.
This summer we return to Scripture to delve into the book of Acts. St. Vincent has undergone much change in the last nine months. Like the followers of Jesus in Acts, we are “in process,” with our Christian family. Now where did I put that Bible? Click here to read the Acts of the Apostles online.
