I Heard God Laugh

This year, each family will receive Matthew Kelly’s newest book, I Heard God Laugh. We hope reading the brief reflections will provide insight and enrich our personal faith lives. To that end, an opportunity for guided discussion will be offered on July 21, August 18, and September 22 from 7-8 PM. Additionally, these three sessions will facilitate an in-person opportunity for returning families to reconnect and meet new RSPS families. Children are welcome and supervision on the playground will be provided.
