Context is lectionary-based night that consists of a 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 at starting at 7:30 p.m.
Each night, we begin in a larger group where each reading will be read out loud. Fr. Joseph or the leader may also give any background information on any solemnity or feast occurring that Sunday. Afterwards, we break into three groups, each of which will take one of the readings and discuss it separately. From there, the small groups will come back together and share what they discussed with the rest of the large group. Each night ends with Eucharistic Adoration in the 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!
