Lectio Under the Tent

Lectio at HNOJ is Back!

This summer HNOJ hosted “Lectio on the Lawn” and we are bringing it back this fall with "Lectio Under the Tent.” As in the summer, we will be taking some time to pray with the Sunday gospel reading, learn a little bit about it from a brief talk, and then discuss how this applies to our lives. HNOJ is getting a tent for a month this fall and we will be utilizing it to pray with scripture. 

We’ll meet for about an hour. There won’t be any homework. We will be using the Lectio Divina Prayer form to unpack the upcoming Sunday gospel. We are doing this to better prepare for Mass and to get into the habit of reading the gospel in preparation.

Please register for Lectio as we will have a maximum number of participants.
