Book Clubs

Our Lady of Lourdes has several active book clubs.  Books are selected by the individual groups and scheduled to be read on a monthly basis.  A wide variety of books are chosen:  religious, novels, fiction, historical fiction, biographies, and current best sellers.  A group discussion is held on the subject book at each meeting.

Monday Night Book Club

 We meet once a month at 7:00 on a Monday evening for approximately 2-1/2 hours.  This includes prayer, discussion of the book and social time.  At each meeting we determine which Monday we will meet for the next month.  Generally we meet at Ray & Karen Brown’s except in winter when we meet at member’s homes in town.  Our books are chosen by the group once a year from a list that we gather throughout the year.  We read spiritual/inspirational, historic novels, fiction, and non-fiction/memoirs.  We are made up of a variety of people of different ages, diverse backgrounds and a variety of interests. We are men & women, single and married.
