In a different kind of session, come and hear Fr. James Martin read excerpts from his first novel, “The Abbey.” Anne is a recently divorced woman struggling to make sense of the death of her young son. Mark is a handyman at a Trappist abbey, frustrated with a stalled career and the turns his life has taken. Paul is the abbot of the Abbey of Sts. Philip and James, and wonders about the loneliness he often feels. Come and see how God brings all three of these people together and what you might learn from how each of them encounters God.
