 Experience the Unconditional Love Christ Has for You

     We often hear about Jesus’ passion and death, but imagine experiencing them for the very first time. In No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we are going to walk step-by-step with Jesus on his journey from his agony in the garden to his crucifixion on Calvary.

     Along the way, we will unpack the biblical background to these events, the prophecies, and most especially, the ways Jesus is inviting us to walk more closely with him today.

     No Greater Love is a five-part Bible study program that will run from Tuesday, February 28, 2023 through March 28, 2023 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm in the Rectory Conference Room as well as Thursday, March 2, 2023 through March 30, 2023 from 7:00pm to 9:00pm via ZOOM. For more information visit, or to register contact Mary Hart at (413)455-4778 or

     No Greater Love is a biblical pilgrimage that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Best-selling author Edward Sri guides you through the last hours of Christ’s life. Every step of the way, Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ’s suffering and death. Experience a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s immeasurable and unconditional love for you—grow closer to Jesus than you ever have before.
