Friday Women's GroupOur women's study/prayer group meets Fridays. A group of ladies from both parishes have been meeting for several years in SJ Family Room from 10-11 am. On the third Friday of the month, we collate SJ bulletins starting after the 8:15 am Mass. More ladies are welcome to join us. Each week we study a different saint using Bishop Robert Barron's Catholicism series and his new series, Catholicism:The Pivotal Players. Contact Jo if you would like to join us. Participants need not come every week.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++That Man is You! Men, do you have a New Year's resolution to drop a few pounds, eat healthier or straighten our your finances? What about the most important part - your spiritual life? Come join That Man Is You and get the New Year off on the right foot! This semester the subject will be following Scott Hahn's video series, the Bible and the Sacraments. We are back on Saturday mornings starting at 7 am with coffee and a light breakfast. Program starts at 7:15 am.
Please join for our ongoing study of The Bible and the Sacraments by Scott Hahn.
Our next session March 18 will include the difference between mortal and venial sin, the connection between penance and the rest of the Sacraments, a true understanding of God's mercy, the primary purpose of Anointing of the Sick, Old Testament roots of the Anointing of the Sick and redemptive suffering.
Week 11 is an important topic, Holy Orders! We'll see in this Sacrament a man receives a unique call to be the spiritual father of God's children. As with the other Sacraments, the priesthood is nothing new to the story of salvation history. Not only is it rooted in both the Old and New Testaments, it's as old as man himself. Themes include: the common priesthood and the ministerial priesthood, the priesthood of Adam and the role of the first-born son, how the Levitical priesthood came into existence at Mount Sinai, David as priest-king and the transition toward the New Covenant, the restoration and transformation of the priesthood in Jesus Christ and the apostolic succession and the nuptial symbolism of a male priesthood.
