OVERVIEW.jpg

Catholicism: The Pivotal Players

facilitated by Sherrie McQueen & Bev Sauer

Tuesdays, 10:00-11:30 a.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room
July 18 and 25

Join us as we explore Bishop Robert Barron’s fascinating film series illuminating a handful of saints, artists, mystics and  scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization. Bishop Barron unlocks the truth behind the Catholic Church’s most influential people, from St. Francis of Assisi to St. Catherine of Siena, from St. Thomas Aquinas to Michaelangelo, and all the way to Blessed John Cardinal Henry Newman and G.K. Chesterton.

Would love to join us for all but can only make a few classes? Here's the pivotal player we'll be covering during each:

  • July 18: G.K. Chesterton, The Evangelist
  • July 25: St. Catherine of Siena, The Mystic

Click here to sign up to learn about these pivotal players.

If you will need childcare, please click here to sign up your child(ren) at least 3 days in advance.

Prayer & Spirituality Studies

Prayer: Our Deepest Longing, a Ronald Rolheiser Book Study

presented by Women in Faith

Fridays, 9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m., Adult Ed/OCI Room
July 14, and 21

With simple, down-to-earth language, Rolheiser illustrates the importance of prayer and offers techniques for how to pray, using examples from daily life, Scripture, and contemporary writers. He delves into the places that we fear to go with our issues about prayer, encouraging us with gentle kindness and words of hope and inspiration. This is a book for all manner of believers, whether your faith is solidly rooted, wavering between childhood religion and adult faith, or just not sure what you believe—or whether you believe at all.
