Jesus – The Way, The Truth & The Life Bible Study

The marvelous treasures of the Catholic Faith—the Eucharist, Mary, the saints, and the Creed—are all centered on a single figure: Jesus Christ. Jesus is more than a historical or theological figure. He is our Savior, our Redeemer, our Lord, and our God. While many of us already know a lot about him, how well can we say we really know him? Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life is a new and fresh look at Jesus—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, and what he did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way. Please register to join this group. You may purchase a study set (includes book for $29.95) or online access to materials ($27.95).

Women’s Bible Study

(Holding Zoom Virtual Meetings) on Thursdays (1st and 3rd) of each month (7:00 – 8:30pm). Jesus invites us always to receive the Holy  Spirit in our hearts.  Our  study of the Gospel of John gives the opportunity to answer His call to open our hearts to know Him more through the Study of Scripture.  We pursue Jesus who gives us hope in dealing with our past, our present and future.  He meets each one of us where we are – He is faithful and will take us to a deeper relationship with Him regardless of where we begin. For more information, contact Rose Marie Knaus.

Women’s Small Group Scripture Study

(Holding Zoom Virtual Meetings) 1x/month on Sundays (1:30pm).  “Genesis to Jesus: Journey through Scripture” series by St. Paul Center.  The video-aided Bible study centers on discovery of our place in the ‘Story of Salvation’ – What is the Bible, where does it come from, and what story does it tell?  And how are we, as Catholics, supposed to read it?  The series presents participants to see a panoramic vision of salvation history and their place in this story. Please contact Rose Marie Knaus for more information.  

New: Men’s Catholic Fellowship

(Currently holding ZOOM virtual meetings!) The secular world makes it increasingly difficult for men to live out a life of Catholic virtue. Catholic peer groups can help us to apply our faith more strongly as husbands, fathers, friends, and workers. The group will ground itself by studying scripture and applying the teachings to current struggles. Men are invited to take turns leading discussion each week, focusing on what spoke most to them from the reading and applying it to home and work. We will meet each Wednesday morning for an hour before work – starting at 7:00 a.m. on Zoom. Bring your coffee and curiosity. For more information, email Jeff Green.

Men’s Sunday Readings Discussion Group –  Wednesday mornings

Join us every Wednesday morning from 8 – 9 a.m. on Zoom. Optional materials fee, all year. Call Jim Kennedy for more information at 248-879-1982. Registration not required.
