Want to meet other women in the parish and enrich your faith? Come check out Women In Faith! 

Women In Faith (Friday Morning)

We are a friendly group of women of all ages who meet in small groups to share our faith and support one another. Our reflective and scriptural studies afford us the opportunity to grow in friendship, faith, and, most importantly, in God's love.

In addition to our faith-sharing study groups, Women In Faith also supports many other Church ministries and activities such as the Vincent De Paul, Habitat for Humanity, Men's Bible study, Seder Meal, Thanksgiving Baskets, Christmas Dinner, etc.

Free baby sitting in the nursery is available to young children of our members while they attend

 

Friday Women in Faith

Fridays, 9:45 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Bishop Hall
join us anytime

Women in Faith begins at 9:45 a.m. in Bishop Hall with opportunity for prayer, reflection and fellowship with our larger group.  We then break into our groups of studies. 

This fall we will offer 6 studies from which to choose:

  • SUNDAY SCRIPTURE
    Reflecting on Sunday's Readings (Scriptures) is a small-group Bible study on the Sunday Mass readings. The study introduces participants to small-group discussion materials based on the Scripture passages used in the upcoming Sunday's Mass. Each weekly study provides an introductory reflection on some aspect of the readings or on personal spirituality. Each passage is printed along with a few questions designed to engage the heart and stimulate discussion.

  • SAINTS AND SOCIAL JUSTICE: A GUIDE TO CHANGING THE WORLD by Brandon Vogt
    The value of human life. The call to family and community. Serving the poor. The rights of workers. Care for creation. The church has always taught certain undeniable truths that can and should affect our society. But over the years, these teachings have been distorted, misunderstood, and forgotten. With the help of fourteen saints, it's time we reclaim Catholic social teaching and rediscover it through the lives of those who best lived it out. Follow in the saints' footsteps, learn from their example, and become the spark of authentic social justice that sets the world on fire.

  • PRAYING THE ROSARY LIKE NEVER BEFORE: ENCOUNTER THE WONDER OF HEAVEN AND EARTH
    by Edward Sri

    Do you struggle with praying the rosary: finding the time, fighting distractions, worrying about your mind wandering? It offers practical suggestions that come from the rosary’s tradition. You will find answers to common questions such as the significance of the Hail Mary, whether the attention given to Mary distracts us from God, the meaning of all the repetition, where the rosary came from, what to think about for each of the mysteries, and whether one should focus on the prayers or the mysteries. You will also find biblical reflections on the twenty mysteries of the rosary that provide practical insights to help you not only understand the twenty mysteries but also live them.

  • THE BOOK OF REVELATION: THE LAMB AND THE BEASTS by Stephen J. Binz
    The book of Revelation is not about what the future holds, but about who holds the future. It lays out contrasting visions of the world of the Lamb and the world of the beasts and expresses the magnitude of our choice with inspired imagery. Reading Revelation momentarily gives us the eyes of God to glimpse the heavenly meaning of our worship, to look evil in the face and see its full reality, to gaze upon the cosmic meaning of Christ’s sacrifice, and to envision the world renewed by the hope of God’s victory. Revelation offers the world a wakeup call and teaches us how to live in joyful hope.

  • HIDDEN WOMEN OF THE GOSPELS by Kathy Coffey
    The women who live "between the lines" of scripture come to life and take center stage in this charming and prayerful book. "What if?" it begins... then imagines the stories of women who were with Jesus throughout his life: the female shepherd, the mother of the man born blind, the wives of Peter, Jairus, Pilate and Cleophas, the serving girl who confronts Peter, the woman at the foot of the cross. Twenty shadows come to life. Biblical women become models for contemporary women. Questions for reflection invite readers to uncover the holiness in their own lives. And most of all, readers find new friends in Scripture, whose unique insights will resonate into their days, into their hearts.

  • EVERYTHING BELONGS by Richard Rohr
    This popular and bestselling book of the renowned Franciscan challenges people to move beyond the comfort of a settled life toward an understanding of themselves that is rooted in their connection to God. Only when they rest in God can they find the certainty and the freedom to become all that they can be. Contemplation has its place at the heart of Christianity, a place that allows people to experience how “everything belongs.”
