Our Women's Ministry offers programs for individual spiritual growth and development for those who wish to "stretch and grow" in areas of faith, prayer, relationship to God and others through a process of prayer, sharing, reading, journaling and the integration of scripture into daily life.
Join us for an in depth look at Father Jacques Philippe's book "In the School of the Holy Spirit". In the prayers lives of many Christians there is one person of the Trinity that often goes overlooked - The Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is no less involved in our lives than the Father and the Son, yet many are unaware of this. Jesus said about the Holy Spirit, "If I go, I will send you another Comforter." But are we aware of the Holy Spirit in our lives? In the School of the Holy Spirit by renowned retreat master Jacques Philippe will help. It will lead you to be more attentive to the movements of the Holy Spirit in your life as you learn to value the third person of the Trinity as the Sanctifier of your soul. Philippe explains the rewards of being attentive to the Holy Spirit and provides simple and concrete ways to grow in this inner sensitivity. In his clear and simple style, he illustrates his points with many examples from modern life. Here then is a valuable aid in your own spiritual journey.

"Searching For and Maintaining Peace"
A Small Treatise on Peace of Heart
by Father Jacques Phillipe
We live in a day and age characterized by an extraordinary amount of agitation and lack of peace. This
tendency manifests itself in our spiritual as well as our secular life. In our search for God and holiness, in our service to our neighbor, a kind of restlessness and anxiety take the place of the confidence and peace which ought to be ours. What must we do to overcome the moments of fear and distress which assail us all too often in our lives? How can we learn to place all our confidence in God and abandon ourselves into his loving care? This is what is taught in this simple, yet profound little treatise on peace of heart. Taking concrete examples from our everyday life, the author invites us to respond in a Gospel fashion to the upsetting situations we must all confront. Since peace of heart is a pure gift of God, it is something we should seek, pursue and ask him for without cease. This book is here to help us in that pursuit.
Join us as we dive into this beautiful 3 week study.
