OUR LENTEN CLASS LIFE TRANSFORMED: THE WAY OF LOVE IN LENT - Thursdays in Lent, 6 pm – Soup and bread, 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm, Forum. The journey through Lent into Easter is a journey with Jesus. This Lent, you are invited to walk with Jesus in his Way of Love and into the experience of transformed life. Together, we will reflect anew on the loving actions of God as recounted in the Easter Vigil readings.  This set of Adult Forums ties the Easter Vigil readings to the practices of the Way of Love. We will be doing the first five.

Session dates are:

March 14 at St. Peter’s, Perth Amboy;

March 21 at St. Luke’s, Metuchen;

March 28 at Trinity, Woodbridge;
