The St. Paul’s Book Club offers parishioners an opportunity to engage with some of the great works of classic and contemporary spirituality in an informal and friendly setting.
Through reading, reflection and discussion, individuals deepen their engagement with God, further their spiritual development, and enjoy great fellowship with fellow pilgrims.
We are a diverse and lively group with a wide range of interests and backgrounds, and we meet following the 11 AM service on the first Sunday of each month in the Margaret Avery Memorial Library (also known as The King Room).
The Book Club Schedule for 2020 is given below.
