Women of the Word (formerly MACH 1)

Join us for enriching Bible Study and Faith Sharing for women!
Our study will be “Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother”. – We look forward to an extraordinary pilgrimage led by Dr. Edward Sri, that reveals Mary’s unique role in God’s Kingdom and in our lives. The 10 session DVD series, filmed on location in the Holy Land, will place us in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life, taking us through her joys…and her
sorrows. We will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her Divine Son. Seeing Mary in this way will change us forever. Mary will become a part of our daily lives, and in our daily lives, we will
become more like Christ.
  We will also be using the book, “Rooted In Love: Our Calling as Catholic Women” by Donna-Marie Cooper O’Boyle for study and faith sharing. (Available at Holy Family Bookstore)
  Our group is informal and relaxed! There is NO homework, just 2 hours each week to walk with other women on their journey of faith!
All Women are welcome! Please join us Wednesday mornings at Nativity in the Nazareth room starting
September 16 from 9:00-11:00 a.m. Free Childcare Available! Bring a friend – we welcome women from any parish!
  For more information call Chris Steffan at Nativity 232-2414.

The One Thing is Three Group Study

The One Thing is Three, a study written by Fr. Michael Gaitley, will begin Sunday,  August 23, 2015, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm in the Nazareth Room. Fr. Gaitley’s study relates the importance of seeing all things through the understanding of the Trinity.  Because God shows us the importance of being in relationship, Fr. Gaitley extends the study to show us the importance of being in transforming  “communion”  in our daily lives because of our understanding of the Trinity.

The ten week study has a book to read, and a workbook to complete each week, a  talk (DVD) to watch each session. Fr. Kevin Boucher will be the facilitator of these sessions.

Please sign up in the Gathering Space at Nativity or email Chris to sign up. We will need to know if you need a book and/or a workbook ordered for you.
