Coffeehouse Catholics Adult Faith Formation Series

ALL ADULTS OF THE PARISH are welcome to join us in the “Coffeehouse” after the 8:30am Mass. We invite all adults of the parish to enjoy coffee and refreshments followed by a presentation in Saint Joseph’s hall. Presenters and topics vary. At times we will have a series of talks and others we will offer a talk or discussion on a specific issue. In the fall, Father Byrd will offer a series on particulars of the liturgy.
Sunday October 1st

Fr. Byrd’s first lecture on the liturgy will look at the Scriptures and the Sacrifice of the Mass, and how the Mass fulfills the sacrifices of old.

Sunday October 15th

Fr. Byrd’s second lecture on the liturgy will look at the liturgical calendar, it’s purpose, and formation.

Sunday October 29th

Our pastor’s third lecture in this series will consider the Post Vatican II Reforms of the Mass.

We also invite ALL PARENTS of the parish to join us once a month to discuss approaching tough topics with your kids in today’s culture. This year in Parent Faith Formation we will use Pope Saint John Paul II’s work, Theology of the Body, to understand how to approach certain issues surrounding human dignity and sexuality with our kids. We will discuss isssues such as modesty, dating, gender dysphoria, and pornography. These are difficult but important conversations and we hope all parents of the parish will join us.
Sunday October 22nd

On the Feast of Pope Saint John Paul II we will begin our discussions on his work, Theology of the Body. This first session will simply introduce the purpose and overview of Theology of the Body. We will also introduce our topics and our hopes for the year.

Women’s Bible Study

Women’s Bible Study on Thursdays | 2 to 3:30 pm | St. Joseph’s Hall

The Women’s Bible Study will begin again on Thursday, September 21st, 2023, at 2 p.m. We will be studying Dr. Pitre’s “Genesis and the Books of Moses.”

The book of Genesis may well be the most exciting and mysterious book in the Bible. For Jews of Jesus’ day, the most important part of the Bible was none other than the Five Books of Moses (a.k.a. the Pentateuch: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy). For thousands of years, these five books laid the foundations of Jewish and Christian belief about God, creation, man, Adam and Eve, Original Sin, the Flood, Moses and the Exodus, the Tabernacle, the Law, and on and on.

In modern times, however, no book of the Bible has been more attacked or more misunderstood than the book of Genesis. There is also no other part of the Bible about which people have tougher questions than the Five Books of the Pentateuch. In this long-awaited full-length Bible study, Dr. Brant Pitre takes you on a guided tour through Genesis and the books of Moses. After years of research and teaching the Pentateuch, in this electrifying new series, Dr. Pitre answers common questions such as:

• Did Moses write the Pentateuch? What does the Catholic Church teach?
• What about the theory of multiple authors “J, E, D, and P”?
• Do the two accounts of creation in Genesis 1 and 2 contradict one another?
• How do we interpret the Six Days of Creation?
• Were Adam and Eve historical figures, or are they just symbolic?
• Was the Fall a historical event, or is it fictional “mythology”?
• What have the Popes said about Creation, Evolution, and Original Sin?
• Were the “Sons of God” who married the “Daughters of Men” really Angels?
• How do we interpret the account of Noah’s Flood?
• Are Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob historical figures or legends?
• Why did God ask Abraham to sacrifice his son Isaac?
• Did Moses really lead the Israelites out of Egypt? Is the Exodus a legend?
• What is the meaning of the Ten Plagues against Egypt? Were they miraculous?
• What is the key to understanding the Ten Commandments?
• Why did God demand Animal Sacrifices and Kosher Food Laws?
• Why does God allow the Israelites to engage in Holy War?

If you’ve ever wondered about any of these topics; if you’ve ever been stumped by tough questions about Creation and the Fall; if you’ve wondered how the ancient Church Fathers, modern biblical scholars, and the Catholic Church’s magisterium answer these and other questions, then this is the Bible study for you.

Walking With Purpose ~ Rooted and Radiant

Meeting Times offered Wednesday Mornings (10 am) OR Nights (7 pm)
Our Fall study, Rooted and Radiant, will start on Wednesday, September 20, 2023, and run for 6 weeks ~ Please register through the form below.

Rooted and Radiant was written for any woman who wants to live her life grounded in Jesus Christ. In this Bible study, we learn the book of Colossians verse by verse as we seek to understand the challenges that faced the Colossians, recognizing that they are remarkably similar to our own challenges today.

Through this Bible study, we dive deep into understanding who Jesus is and what that means for us. We learn how to abide in the wisdom of Christ to navigate the ever-increasing demands and messages of our culture, what it means to live in the freedom of Christ, and how to continually set our minds on Him.

Rooted and Radiant is ideal if you want to…

  • Know Jesus as He is
  • Know how to stay faithful in the middle of a culture that is constantly telling you that Christ is not enough
  • Know how to sift through the modern messages that are being thrown at you
  • Be able to compare the glamour of the world to the infinite value of “being in Christ”

In a world increasingly plagued with confusion and chaos, you are invited to encounter the God of clarity and peace. Let Christ reveal Himself to you as He truly is and transform you into the woman that our world so desperately needs.

Each weekly lesson is divided into 5 short daily sections which can be completed in about 20 to 30 minutes. The recommended Bible translation to use for a Walking with Purpose study is the New American Bible (NAB) Revised Edition. The weekly meetings, where we review and discuss the answers from our lesson, last about 1 to 1.5 hours and are covered within a small group setting.
