The weekly book discussion group has been meeting for more than 18 years, and generally reads 4 or 5 books a year. We meet weekly on Thursday at 7:15pm to discuss and debate current, timely books on contemporary Catholic topics. Dr. Tony Tambasco, a theologian and biblical scholar at Georgetown University, leads the discussions.  All are welcome!
