Living the Word

Are you interested in diving into God’s Word in anticipation of the weekend Mass?

At Living the Word meetings, we discuss the Sunday scripture readings and how they apply to our daily lives. There is also an opportunity for faith sharing. 

Living the Word meets on Thursday evenings at 7 p.m. via the Zoom conferencing app. Zoom links with the dates and times are provided in advance to everyone registered with Flocknote. The Zoom meeting links are also posted every Thursday on the OLA Live page. 

On the fourth Thursday of each month, the regular meeting is replaced with a Taize prayer service and Lectio Divina Scripture meditation.

Our parish’s Living the Word group is a true blessing to all participants. By delving into the Word of God well before each Sunday Mass, we better prepare ourselves to enter fully into the celebration of the Liturgy.
