You do not need to attend every session to participate; book chapters are stand-alone and do not need to be read in order. No cost to participate. Participants may purchase a book on their own, check a copy out from the library, or order through Risen Savior for $15. Book orders through Risen Savior are due July 10th.
About the book: James Martin has led an entirely modern life: from a lukewarm Catholic childhood, to an education at the Wharton School of Business, to the executive fast track at General Electric, to ministry as a Jesuit priest, to a busy media career in Manhattan. But every step of the way, he has been accompanied by some surprising friends–the saints of the Catholic Church.
Martin’s best-selling memoir encompasses saints throughout Christian history–from St. Peter to Dorothy Day, St. Francis of Assisi to Mother Teresa–and chronicles the author’s lifelong relationship with them. His witty, vibrant, and stirring stories enable readers to discover how the saints guide us throughout our earthly journeys and how they help each of us find holiness in our own lives.
