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?

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.
