Women’s Bible Study Resumes

Our class will begin on September 11 with the brand new course “Mary: A Biblical Walk With the Blessed Mother”. Ours is one of the first parishes to offer this new program. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, this course will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of Mary’s earthly life, taking you through her joys and sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her divine Son. Seeing Mary in this way will change you forever. She will become a part of your daily life and help you to become more like Christ.


Join us for “Mary: A Biblical Walk With the Blessed Mother” in the parish hall beginning Thursday, September 11 at 7 pm and continuing every Thursday until October 30. To join this study, please contact the parish office and leave your name and contact information. Participants will need a workbook, available for purchase at the first class.
