Women's Bible Study

The next Women’s Bible Study starts Thursday, May 9.

Sharing Christ's Priesthood

Guided by the example of Christ, Scripture, and our ordained priests, we will look into the depth of our baptismal call to live and share our faith at home, at work and in our community.

  • Who ultimately decides what your role in the Church should be?
  • How do I respond to authority - in the Church, at work, or in the community?
  • What do you think was God's plan in putting you in charge of a portion of His universe?

Join us as we discuss how to implement the answers to these questions in our own lives.

Time: 1:30 p.m. Place: Parish Library Cost: $6.00

For more information or to register, please contact Marybeth at 687-5657 ext. 4 or
