Faith-based Book Club - "By Way of Grace" by author Paula Huston

Would you like to read the above titled, faith-based book and share with fellow Catholics your thoughts about the book?  We would like to begin a Book Club that will meet in parishioners' homes once a month to discuss the book we have read over the past month.  Hosting is not mandatory.  Our first meeting to share Paula Huston's book will be on Thursday, November 29 at 1:00 PM.  Contact Mary Takacs to let her know you will participate and for location of the first meeting: mtakacs@stmartinvc.org or 330-483-3808.  

The book "By Way of Grace" by Paula Huston is available through Amazonsmile.com - Kindle Edition $9.99 or Hardcover $12.67.  If you choose Amazonsmile.com versus regular Amazon, a portion of your purchase can be given to Operation H.O.M.E.S. if you list them as your Charity of Choice.  You will be assisting the homeless in Medina County.
