Ladies Book Club



The Women’s Book Club continues to seek new membership. This group is comprised of women of varied ages and diverse backgrounds. It is a compatible group with members who share an appreciation for the Catholic Church and its teachings. The group strives to learn more about our Catholic faith through the works of varied authors and genre. Every other month, for approximately 90 minutes, the ladies gather to share ideas and insights acquired from a preselect
ed book.

Currently we are reading My Badass Book of Saints by Maria Morera Johnson

mybadassbookofsaints

In this edgy, honest, and often audacious book of Catholic spirituality, blogger and popular podcaster Maria Morera Johnson explores the qualities of twenty-four holy women who lived lives of virtue in unexpected and often difficult circumstances.

In My Badass Book of Saints, Johnson shares her experience as a first-generation Cuban-American, educator of at-risk college students, and caregiver for a husband with Lou Gehrig's disease. Through humorous, empowering, and touching portraits of twenty-four spiritual mentors who inspired her, Johnson shows how their bravery, integrity, selflessness, perseverance, and hope helped her and can help others have courage to reach for a closer connection to God.

She presents remarkable holy women and saints--including the gun-toting Servant of God Sr. Blandina Segale who tried to turn the heart of Billy the Kid, and Nazi resister Irena Sendler who helped smuggle children out of the Warsaw Ghetto during World War II--in a way that brings their vivid personalities to life and helps readers live out the challenges of their lives with virtue and conviction. The book includes a group discussion guide.

Our next meeting will be on March 10th at 6:30pm in the Saint Mark Library. Please consider joining us for a lively and informative discussion. New members are always welcome!
