New Fall Book!
Pulitzer Prize Winner
ALL THE LIGHT WE CANNOT SEE
By Anthony Doerr

Used books available at the rectory for $7.00
Book discussion Friday, October 25, 2019
7:00 pm in the Rectory Meeting Room


Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, a New York Times Book Review Top Ten Book, National Book Award finalist, more than two and a half years on the New York Times bestseller list.

From the highly acclaimed, multiple award-winning Anthony Doerr, the stunningly beautiful instant New York Times bestseller about a blind French girl and a German boy whose paths collide in occupied France as both try to survive the devastation of World War II.

Marie-Laure lives in Paris near the Museum of Natural History, where her father works. When she is twelve, the Nazis occupy Paris and father and daughter flee to the walled citadel of Saint-Malo, where Marie-Laure’s reclusive great uncle lives in a tall house by the sea. With them they carry what might be the museum’s most valuable and dangerous jewel.

In a mining town in Germany, Werner Pfennig, an orphan, grows up with his younger sister, enchanted by a crude radio they find that brings them news and stories from places they have never seen or imagined. Werner becomes an expert at building and fixing these crucial new instruments and is enlisted to use his talent to track down the resistance. Deftly interweaving the lives of Marie-Laure and Werner, Doerr illuminates the ways, against all odds, people try to be good to one another.

Doerr’s “stunning sense of physical detail and gorgeous metaphors” (San Francisco Chronicle) are dazzling. Ten years in the writing, a National Book Award finalist, All the Light We Cannot See is a magnificent, deeply moving novel from a writer “whose sentences never fail to thrill” (Los Angeles Times).

MEN'S SPIRITUALITY--THAT MAN IS YOU
BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 14, 2019


Men get together weekly on Saturday mornings to share faith
and ideas on topics that they are interested in pursuing.

After an extended "summer break" that began shortly after Easter, we are about to launch a brand new semester of TMIY. The title for this fall's program is "The Revelation of the Father", and will focus on how we, as Catholic men, can improve relationships within our families while strengthening our faith and spiritual lives.

During the next thirteen weeks we will discover:

* The true dignity of the heart of a father.
* The four types of formation necessary for fathers to properly nurture their children and families.
* The parenting methods inspired by the saints and proven effective with the most difficult children.
* The challenges confronting men in their fatherhood and the means to overcome them.

ATTENTION: ALL WIVES, SISTERS, MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS AND WOMEN WHO CARE: Now is the time to reach out to the men who are important to you and your family. Encourage them to join us on this journey. They won't regret it!

That Man is You! meets on Saturday mornings at 6:30 am for breakfast in O'Connell Hall at St. George School. All adult men, 18 and older, are invited to join us. To learn more about this program, please contact Don Budny at (708) 429-1823; dbudny3@aol.com or Gary Hendzell at (708) 614-1734; ghendzell@msn.com.
