St. Paul's "Letters from Prison"
All are invited to study St. Paul's letters this fall. We will study Paul's journey through letters of encouragement and instruction to the Phillipian, Colossian and Ephesian communities. See how we can relate today to the stuggles the early Christians experienced, and how they come to greater discipleship through Paul's words of encouragement. Register online.
Clarification on Walking With Purpose **** Please Read*****
WWP 101 versus Walking With Purpose 7 Priorities that Make Life Work: I would like to clarify that the book that goes with the upcoming WWP Women's Ministry is titled Walking With Purpose 101, "Choosing the Better Part" it is completely different from the book Walking with Purpose 7 Priorities That Make Life Work. I recommended the Walking with Purpose 7 Priorities That Make Life Work so you could get an idea of Lisa's style and because I found the book beneficial.
In Walking With Purpose 101 you will get the Study Guide, "Choosing the Better Part", the book "The Better Part" and you will need your bible. I would like to suggest that if you are on the fence come to the Connect Coffee and the first Chapter so basically the first two weeks. Nora and I will have copies of the first chapter and what you need for the connect coffee. If you like it then sign up if not a problem. However, I do need an idea that you are coming to the first two weeks so that I can have materials ready.
MOVIES AND MUNCHIES: Bring your kids for free movies on Wednesdays. See the flyer for the list of upcoming movies and dates.
EUCHARIST VIDEO: BustedHalo.com's introduction to the Sacraments series continues as Fr. Steven Bell, CSP, answers more questions about what Catholics believe about the Eucharist and receiving Communion. These questions and more are answered in this edition of "Sacraments 201," a web video series geared for those who'd like an introduction or refresher course on these important, tangible Catholic experiences of God.
HANDICAP RAMP FOR HOLY FAMILY CHAPEL
Holy Family will be working on a project to help our Holy Family Chapel to be handicapped accessible. This idea came into being in response to knowing that a good number of parishioners do not go to daily Mass or other events in the old chapel because of their inability to go up the steps. The idea for a ramp was presented to and approved by the parish Development Committee, the Corporators of the Parish and the Pastoral Council in February. We are using funds raised from the memorial brick sale to finance this project, but a bit more is needed to cover all costs. If you would like to donate to the Chapel Ramp project, please contact the parish office or send a check designating your donation to this fund.
Thank you – Fr. Andy
"Five Things You Didn't Know About Jesus by
(CNN) - With Easter approaching, and the movie “Son of God” playing in wide release, you’re going to hear a lot about Jesus these days.
You may hear revelations from new books that purport to tell the “real story” about Jesus, opinions from friends who have discovered a “secret” on the Web about the son of God, and airtight arguments from co-workers who can prove he never existed.
