Please RSVP "Yes" or "Maybe" only as we are working to gather an idea of how many people plan to attend.
Using a workbook called Opening Your Heart, along with short talks, videos and interactive learning, we will gather and discover how God's word applies to our life right now. Fellowship and bonding are encouraged as we drop our mask and come together as daughters of the King! We feature no homework, good wine and no obligation to make it every week. Come as you are and come when you can!
It all began back in 1984 with a small band of women who gathered each Tuesday morning to pray in the Pauline Chapel.
For several years this faithful group gathered to intercede for family and friends in the presence of the Eucharist. Then the parish decided that it would begin to use the Little Rock Scripture Study to encourage parishioners to study the Word of God.
The women who been gathering for prayer chose to incorporate this program into their Tuesday morning prayer time… The Tuesday Morning Scripture Study was born! And continues to this day. Each fall, the group welcomes new participants(both men and women) as well as “old faithfuls”, bringing a variety of life experiences to the study table.
Join us as we begin our study of Ephesians on Tuesday, October 1 at 9:00am in the Julie Penrose Hall.
Ephesians was one of the most widely circulated of St. Paul’s writings because of its powerful, practical instructions for Disciples of Christ. This Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance study examines several much-discussed themes in today’s Christian culture and society – the nature of marriage, the purpose and role of the Church, the preeminence of grace in God’s plan, and the reality of spiritual warfare.
In this 8-session program, presenter Jeff Cavins explores what Paul’s letter to the Ephesians tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. The cost will be $30 for workbook and materials.
For more information and to register, contact Betty Faricy at [email protected] or 719-491-8010.
If you prefer an evening study, Vincent Onoja will be facilitating a study on Thursday evenings from 6-8 pm in Conference room C. These study sessions will begin on October 17 and will run for 8 weeks.
Thursday Evening Bible Study: Wisdom
Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church provide an abundance of wisdom, though it can often be challenging to apply it to our lives. In this study, we will examine biblical wisdom as it relates to daily life. Drawing on the wisdom literature of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes—Wisdom will teach you how to actively seek out sound guidance and increase your sense of peace in navigating life. In everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being. With this theme, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom, and you will experience the joy it brings to your life.
In this study, you will:
Discover what wisdom is (and what it isn’t!)
Learn new habits for increasing wisdom in your daily life
Gain confidence, through role models and practice, in living according to God’s vision
Gain confidence in discernment as you learn Biblical wisdom and see how God's vision relates to your daily life.
Our parish evening bible study group will begin an 8-week study of wisdom based on the tradition of the Catholic Church and the wisdom literature of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes, on Thursday, Oct 17 from 6– 8pm in Conference room C. The study is open to Adult men and women in the parish. For more information or to register for the study, please visit the registration table in the vestibule after Mass or call the parish office at 719-471-9700.
