Knowing the Unknown? a Lenten Quiet Day - Saturday, March 7, 9:30am - 2:30pm
Join the Rev. Catherine Munz for “Knowing the Unknown" a quiet day, looking at what do we know. What don’t we know. What do we don’t know that we know, or know what we don’t know. Many of us were taught one thing in Sunday school, another thing in Bible study, and yet we know the Holy Spirit moves in our life. So maybe we know more than we thought. The Rev. Catherine Munz is Priest Associate here at St. Paul’s. She retired last Feb. from 25 years of parish ministry. There is a $15 charge to cover the lunch provided. You can register here!
