Women's Ministry

Walking with Purpose

Overview

“Walking with Purpose” is a nationally acclaimed Women’s Bible Study program.  Walking with Purpose endeavors to meet women where they are, giving them practical Biblical teaching that is consistent with Church doctrine and uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an additional resource.

Walking with Purpose aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church.

Walking with Purpose has three elements: at-home study, weekly small group meetings, and a monthly talk on relevant course material.  The program has over seventy parishes involved in the United States, Europe and Canada and has helped thousands of women grow closer to Christ.

Are you interested in getting together with a group of women to explore your faith?  You don’t have much scripture knowledge, but you would like to see how the scriptures apply to your everyday life?  If so, I invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose!

Fall Course – Keeping In Balance: Creating Order Within
Keeping in Balance

Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings beginning September 27, 2016

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?  It seems that we have more and more of everything coming at us these days, and at a faster and faster pace.  Unfortunately, this can leave you feeling frazzled and out of control.  God wants to support and help us so that we can be our best in every season of our lives.
