Fall 2018 Endow Study

Join women to read and learn about our Catholic faith and Church teachings together in a casual, friendly environment. Groups meet weekly for two hours. Study is done completely in class—no homework!

Fall 2018 class: “Humanae Vitae | 50th Anniversary”

The key message of this document is understanding the inseparable dependency of authentic love and truth in human relationships. This is Pope Paul VI’s long-awaited and controversial encyclical explaining the beauty of marriage and the sanctity of human life within that bond. This study is important because it addresses many questions modern Catholics have battled in today’s culture dealing with human love in relationships.

The class begins on Tuesday, September 11. Classes meet from 9:30 am-11:30 am. The cost of the class is $34.95. Please register online at https://endowgroups.org/groups/julie-mellin-s-group. Babysitting is available with advance RSVP to Julie Mellin; you can contact her at 210-416-4536 or at mellinjulie@hotmail.com.

Bible Study Fall 2018

In Wisdom: God’s Vision for Life, Jeff Cavins examines scriptural wisdom as it relates to daily life. Drawing on the wisdom literature of the Bible, these videos will show you how Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being in everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind. With this program, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom and will experience the joy it brings to your life.

We will offer this Bible study on Tuesdays from 9:30-11:30 am in the Emmaus Room and on Wednesdays from 7-9 pm in the Good Shepherd Room. Mary Huebscher will lead the Tuesday morning study, and Evelyn Huron will lead the Wednesday evening study. We will begin on September 25 and 26. The cost for the materials for this study is $20. If you have any questions, please contact Larry Perry in the parish office.

Please register online at https://connectnowgiving.parishsoft.com/f/f2?formid=efe1e129-b160-445d-8c73-947d4563f889.
