Walking with Purpose

Walking with Purpose

“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 Program, Discovering Our Dignity

Join us this fall to learn about the women of the Old and New testament! The women of the bible were as flawed and broken and we can be. Yet, the power of God worked in their lives. Through their stories recorded in Scripture, they reach out to touch our "present" in a tender, honest, and loving way – woman to woman – with ancient wisdom, sage advice, and insights from sorrowful failures and emotional wounds.

The program runs on Tuesday evenings and Wednesday mornings (child care available upon request) beginning September 18 or 19, 2018. Please look for flyers and registration information in the Gathering Space, or call the parish office at 651-738-2646 for more information.
