We meet in the Conference Room (main floor) every 4th Sunday from 9:15am to 11:15am. Check the date in the Church Bulletin or on the Events Calendar on the website. Interested women are always welcome. Books are chosen by consensus of the members and are read critically with an open mind and a Catholic spirit.
For info about what books we are reading email Janet Allen at email@example.com with questions.
The Upper Room is a Catholic community of young professionals and graduate students in the Gainesville Area. We are open to non-Catholics as well.
We meet every Thursday at 6:30PM-7:30PM in Hurley Hall, the building by the church parking pot (behind the church). We have small groups, service projects, and social events.

From the U. S. Catholic Bishops, A Culture of Life and the Penalty of Death:
"Our nation should forgo the use of the death penalty because: The sanction of death, when it is not necessary to protect society, violates respect for human life and dignity. State-sanctioned killing in our names diminishes all of us. Its application is deeply flawed and can be irreversibly wrong, is prone to errors and is biased by factors such as race, the quality of legal representation, and where the crime was committed. We have other ways to punish criminals and protect society."
