Luminaries for All Souls

Luminaries for All Souls | $2 Donation per Bag

It is pious Catholic tradition on the evening of All Souls (November 2nd) to put candles out on the graves of ancestors buried in our churchyards (but of course we have no ancestors buried in our churchyard.) As a way to remember our loved ones that have passed before us we will set out luminaries in front of the church on the evening of November 2nd before the Requiem Mass. The Youth Group will be selling luminaries October 23/24 and October 30/31 after all Masses for you to write the name of a deceased loved one. Suggested $2 donation per bag. All money raised will be donated to Good Shepherd Services .

Walking with Purpose | Women’s Bible Study

Women’s Bible Study | Registration Open
Walking With Purpose ~ Keeping in Balance
Meeting Wednesday Nights at 7pm in the Parish Hall – Starting on Wednesday, September 15

Do you feel pulled in many directions? Do you find it hard to balance the demands placed on your time? Is it difficult to manage all the details thrown your way? God wants to support and help us so that we can be our best in every season of our lives.

Come along on a journey throughout Scripture as we discover the relevance of Old and New Testament wisdom to our daily challenges. In this 22-lesson study, we’ll explore Biblical ideas for managing life’s pace and pressure while living with calm and steadiness. Your lifestyle of health and holiness awaits.

Try Keeping in Balance if you…

  • Are tired of projecting an image of “perfect”
  • Have trouble making God your highest priority
  • Can’t find enough time to give to loved ones
  • Have unrealistic expectations of yourself and others
  • Need help setting healthy boundaries

Each weekly lesson is divided into 5 short daily sections which can be completed in about 20 to 30 minutes. The study guide titled Keeping in Balance (purchased from the WWP online store) and a Catholic Bible are all that you need. 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, may last anywhere from 60 to 90 minutes. We will be meeting in person this year

That Man Is You!

That Man is You! (TMIY)
We’d love to have you be a part of this life-changing program!

MOQ is hosting a unique fellowship for the men in our parish. That Man is You! is an interactive, multimedia men’s program focused upon the development of authentic male leadership and explores men in their relationship to God, to their spouse and to their children. It combines the best research from science with the teachings of the Catholic faith and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of authentic men capable of transforming themselves, their families and greater society.

The Battle of the Bride enables men to take the next step in male leadership.  By attaining clarity of thought and developing integrity of action regarding the Church’s vision of love and marriage, men are able to transform their homes into the foundation for a new springtime of Christianity.

Our Sessions will be held on Friday mornings starting on September 11, 2020 from 6:30 to 8 am in the Parish Hall using the following format with Online Zoom Session also available for those who prefer not to attend in person:

Doors open at 6:30 for coffee, video starts at 7:00, small group discussions at 7:30, dismiss at 8:00.

Upcoming Topics and Dates for 2020 

Please Note: it is not necessary to attend all dates to participate in our group, as the topics are independent talks that do not build on each other from week to week. Of course, we encourage you to attend as often as possible to get the most out of this program.
