Walking with Purpose:

Are you wanting a greater connection in your faith life? Do you leave Sunday Mass wondering how it relates to your day-to-day life? If you are nodding your head, we have something just for you. We invite you to join Walking with Purpose, a Bible study program that has transformed the hearts of countless women by deepening their perosonal relationship with Jesus through Scripture while connecting them to community. This fall we are excited to offer Opening Your Heart, our foundational study that meets women exactly where they are. For those who have completed Opening Your Heart, we will be offering Discovering Our Dignity. Women of the Old and New Testaments were as flawed and broken as we can be, yet the power of God worked in their lives. Discovering Our Dignity will all you to learn from their experiences and uncover ways to deal with unwanted circumstances and deferred hopes.

Kick-Off Event: Tuesday, September 12 from 7:00-8:30 pm for BOTH morning and evening sessions. Weekly sessions start on Tuesday, September 19, from 7-8:30 pm in the Parish Hall. We will dig into topics like prayer, the role of the Holy Spirit, and what exactly is the point of suffering. There are two classes to choose from on Tuesdays. One in the morning from 9:30-11:00 am and one in the evening from 7:00-8:30 pm. For more information contact Leslie Brown at 361-756-3572.

Healing of Families Seminar and Prayer Service 

Many families, if not all, have problems that don't seem to go away no matter how much we pray. Family problems remain present and come from addictions, anxiety, depression, divorce, unhealthy relationships, unforgiveness, diseases, behavior tendencies, etc. We begin to wonder where is God in all of this? The Healing of Families Ministry team will explain why these problem exist, how these problems are surfaced, and how to rid our families of them. Healing of Families meets on Thursday's from 7-8:30 pm in the St. Teresa Calcutta building. (Click here to register)
