For Our Unique Learners

Certified Special Education teacher Nicole Gordon and I will host an information-gathering meeting for all families exploring our Alternative Curriculum options for students with any special needs.  We hope to learn from the families what they need.  We will determine timing of the class at that meeting, based on Nicole’s availability and popular vote.  She will teach ONE weekly session, on a weekend, probably before a Mass.

The meeting is scheduled for Saturday, August 2 at 10 AM in room B.
Those wishing to assist in this endeavor are also welcome to come to the meeting!

Catholic Biblical School of Michigan

Embark on a Journey

Study Sacred Scripture… Understand the significance of God’s Word in your life!

This fall the Catholic Biblical School of Michigan (CBSM) continues with this exciting Scripture study at multiple locations (including St. Anastasia!) in our Archdiocese. Based on the curriculum of the immensely successful Denver Catholic Biblical School, this remarkable program offers an opportunity to read and study the entire Bible over the course of four years. Under the guidance of trained, inspired instructors – all have at least a Master’s Degree – participants study the Bible systematically with the help of lectures, small-group discussions, weekly coursework, and an annual day-long retreat. Archbishop Allen Vigneron supports this important endeavor and the CBSM courses are available for academic credit through Sacred Heart Major Seminary. Whether you have been a long-time student of the Scriptures or are a beginner, these classes will help you discover the timelessness of God’s Word and transform your life!

Course of study:

  • YEAR A: From Eden to Exile: Salvation History from Genesis to 2 Maccabees
  • YEAR B: Proclaiming the Kingdom: The Synoptic Gospels, Acts and the Letters of Paul
  • YEAR C: A Future and a Hope: The Prophets, Tobit, Judith and Esther
  • YEAR D: Wisdom and the Word: The Psalms and Wisdom Literature, Catholic Epistles, John and Revelation

St. Anastasia will be starting a new round of Year A classes on Thursday mornings and Thursday evenings!

**All prospective students must attend an INFORMATION SESSION at any site prior to enrollment.

Information Session Options:

  • Thurs. June 12 at 7 pm
  • Wed. July 16 at 7 pm
  • Wed. August 20 at 7 pm

Knit? Crochet? Read On!

We need knitters and crocheters to make a shawl for ill or grieving persons. We also accept a handmade scarf, hat or mittens for the homeless. This is a great activity for teens and young adults who like to craft in the summer, or any crafter.  Every item is deeply appreciated by the recipients, and much needed. To all who have helped out this year with your handiwork or a yarn donation, a great big Thank You!

Prayer Shawl Ministry will meet at Faith@Work  (on  Wattles and john R) Wednesday, May 7, 2014 from 12 noon—2 p.m. and/or  7—9 p.m . You are welcome to join us for one or both sessions. This will be our last meeting until Sept.  If you are not able to attend, and have completed projects to return, please drop them off  at the parish office for Kim Houseman.  If you would like to work on an item over the summer, and cannot attend the meeting to pick up supplies or directions, call Pat Pillot, 689-8189 to set up a time.
