Blessed Trinity Lenten Program - "No Greater Love"
HE HAD “NO GREATER LOVE” - Filmed on location in the Holy Land, No Greater Love is a five-part video series that reveals the answers to the questions: What was Jesus going through each moment of His Passion? How did the Old Testament foretell of Christ’s death? What was the meaning behind the tearing of the temple veil, the crowning with thorns? Dr. Edward Sri guides you through the last hours of Christ’s life and will take you step-by-step from the Garden of Gethsemane to the Mount of Calvary.
Join us for this special Lenten program at St. John the Baptist - Tuesday evenings at 6:00 p.m. in the church hall beginning on March 12. St. Joseph - Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. in the parish hall beginning on March 13.The book, No Greater Love, will be available for purchase for $20. Call 515.885.2462 to register.
