'That your love may overflow..'
'That your love may overflow..'
15/09/2020

We hear readings from the Acts of the Apostles and the letters of St Paul in church – but how can we understand these and relate them to our own lives? In these four short videos our presenters, Dr Jessie Rogers, Dympna Mallon, Marian Mortell and Philomena Clare, will give an introduction to these scriptures which will help us make sense of the world of the early Church and how these readings can speak to us today.
Please access these videos in your own time, and they don't have to be viewed in order. If you would like to attend a webinar in October discussing some of the content, please let us know at info@galilee.ie
