Our Lady of Mount Carmel Book Club
By meeting together we have more opportunity to engage with the book and learn from others. There is a wealth of great books on offer. The selection for books for 2017 follows suggestions from last year. Each book is relatively short and inexpensive. Time can often get away from us. If you have read some of the books but not all you can still contribute and you can certainly listen to others. Sharing our reading with others allows us the opportunity to hear their thoughts and perhaps refine our own. Prior to the book reflection month there will be a video presentation in the Meeting Room. This will help you understand the author and have time to ask questions of other readers about the book to be read for the following month.
If you have difficulty obtaining any book or any other questions please ring colleen through the parish office
