Women's Bible Study - Gospel Gals
Women will gather in the parish library from 9:30 - 10:45 a.m. each Wednesday as we relate to each other and reflect on the upcoming weekend’s readings and Gospel. To join us, please contact Karen Camarata at firstname.lastname@example.org or Marilyn Tampke at email@example.com.
Adult Faith Formation meets at 9:00 AM on Sunday mornings in the conference room. The group primarily studies the Biblical messages within their contexts and has discussions on the original meanings and modern applications to our lives. To do this, we normally cover one Bible book or collection of books at a time. For the school year of 2016-2017, we are studying Revelation, a book often avoided or misused due to its intense, rich symbolism. There are occasional sessions on topics requested by attendees, such as A Visual Tour of the Gospel in the Holy Land; The History of Islam; Divine Mercy; Purgatory, Limbo and Indulgences; Faith in the Modern Age; and Jewish Worship. Each session is intended to stand alone, and also to connect with and build on other sessions. For more information, contact Randall Stevenson at 913-244-3327 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
That Man Is You
That Man Is You (TMIY) is back for year six! Please join the stalwart 40 - 50 guys who will make the Lenten journey together as they have for the last four years, knowing that giving up an hour of sleep is a small price to pay for the benefits of That Man Is You. If you want to be challenged in your faith and accompanied on the journey by like-minded Catholic men, please join us. Coffee and light breakfast are always ready! For more information, contact Jim Kafka at 816.215.2015.
