Coffeehouse Catholics Adult Faith Formation Series

ALL ADULTS OF THE PARISH are welcome to join us in the “Coffeehouse” after the 8:30 am 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 at others, we will offer a talk or discussion on a specific issue.
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.

Sacred Relics
Sunday, March 3 at 9:30 am
St. Joseph’s Hall

Soon the relics of Saint Jude will be at Mary Our Queen!  Have you ever asked yourself, why we keep relics of the saints?  Has a protestant friend told you that it is non-biblical or even idolatry?  When you stop and think about it, does it seem creepy or just plain weird?  Join us as we explore sacred relics and find out what the Church teaches about this fascinating part of the Catholic faith.

Walking with Purpose | Women’s Bible Study

JOIN US FOR OUR NEXT COFFEE CONNECT: Wednesday, February 7 at 7pm

We will share Mardi Gras refreshments and view a video “The Temple – I invite you in.” No previous study necessary as this is an open house allowing you to get a glimpse of how Walking with Purpose enables women to know Christ personally through Scripture and provides community at our parish.

We are eager to get back to community—back to our Bible study and community of friends who encourage us to become the image of God! You are welcome here.
Walking With Purpose ~ Beholding Your King

Meeting Times offered Wednesday Mornings (10 am) OR Evenings (7 pm)
Our Spring 2024 study, Beholding Your King, will start on Wednesday, January 10, 2024, and run for 9 weeks ~ Please register through the form below if you would like to join our group.

We live in a self-centered culture that all too often leaves us feeling empty and dissatisfied. A fuller view of God and His glory is the perfect antidote, which you will experience in Beholding Your King.

We’ll study King David, select psalms, the temple, and many Old Testament prophets and see the ways in which they all point to the coming King of Kings, Jesus Christ.

 

What we’ll discuss:

  • Prophecies about Jesus in the Old Testament, and their effect on people past and present
  • Psalm 23, the most familiar of all the Psalms which has comforted people throughout the centuries
  • God’s steady purpose in both the Old and New Covenants, and the promises He kept to all of us

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.

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, Jan. 18, 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.
