Context is a lectionary-based study on the Sunday Mass readings for the coming week. Essentially, it’s a Bible study night where we dive into and discuss the readings that will be presented to us at Mass the next Sunday. Context typically takes place on Thursdays beginning at 7:30 p.m.
Each night, we begin in a larger group where each reading will be read aloud. Fr. Joseph, or the leader, may also give background information on any solemnity or feast occurring that Sunday. Afterwards, we break into three groups, discussing each reading separately. From there, the small groups will come back together and share what they discussed to the large group. Each night ends with Eucharistic Adoration in our chapel.
While discussions will be facilitated with a Catholic perspective in mind, people of all faiths and backgrounds are welcome to come and participate!
