The discussions around this book are an invitation to explore the many facets of community — that unity with God in Jesus that gives birth to a oneness in the Spirit, that we call the church.
Opportunities to be and live together, to share together, simply to care for one another in the ordinariness of daily life — these “moments of community” provide a school for “Communio”, a mirroring on earth of the life of our Trinitarian God in whose image we are made.
The sessions will consider the Why, How, What and Who of Community. In different but complementary ways, our answers to the questions will be grounded in an openness to Transcendence, a willingness to sacrifice individual interests for the common good, a search for an inclusivity that gets beyond narrowness and prejudice. Participants are asked to purchase the book on their own and read Forward and Part I in preparation for our first session, the first of four April Wednesday mornings.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
