Tolle et Lege: Book Conversations

Want to go deeper in our Catholic faith?

Consider coming to Tolle et Lege book conversations, which is a conversation over a different book each month (option of morning or evening session), led by Brad Macke, Director of Adult Faith Formation.

Tolle et lege is Latin for “take and read”, which St. Augustine heard a voice say to him toward the beginning of his conversion to Christianity. His conversion involved his heart and his “head” (intellect) – a reminder that the Catholic faith affirms the importance of growing intellectually, since the more we KNOW Jesus, the more we can LOVE Him.

We will read a variety of books ranging from general Catholic topics, to spiritual writing for meditation, to works of literature. Books are typically purchased by the parish in bulk (discounted), then for sale in the parish office. See the line up of selected books and the schedule on this page.
