St. John's Reading Club

CURRENT SELECTION

George Bernanos "The Diary Of A Country Priest" to gather for a Group Discussion via ZOOM - so start reading now!

Awarded the Grand Prix for Literature by the Academie Francaise, this novel recounts the daily life and spiritual turbulence of a young cleric as he attends to the needs and whims of his provincial parishioners, increasingly lay bare the Christian soul of a young country priest, who discovered the divine grace that lies beyond all human suffering.

The St. John's Reading Club is open to the public and meets regularly via ZOOM to discuss a novel previously selected. It is assumed that all participants will have already read the book by the time of the meeting, at which all will be welcome to discuss their reactions to the work with all the others gathered.
