RCIA, The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (and for Children), offers the opportunity to come together in a group setting to learn more about the Catholic Faith.  Sessions focus on the teachings, traditions and experiences of the Catholic Church, which help to prepare individuals to celebrate the Sacraments of Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist.  All are welcome to participate in the inquiry process by bringing your questions, your insights and your faith story to our introductory meetings.  Here at St. Paul’s, our next RCIA sessions will begin on Wednesday, September 11th, 2019, at 6:30 PM in the Family Life Center. (Children will meet at the same time in the school).  For more information or to schedule an interview and complete the required paperwork, please contact MJ Antone at 222-0608 or by email at mjstpaulre@gmail.com.

 


WALKING WITH PURPOSE WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY

Back for a second year with two different programs!

#1 – Opening Your Heart is the fundamental starting point, designed for women, whether or not you have any Bible study experience – all are welcome to come and learn how the Scriptures apply to our everyday lives.

#2 Touching the Divine focuses on the many qualities of Jesus revealed through the Gospel of John.  This study draws us into a deeper, loving relationship with Jesus as we reflect on His life and personality.  St. John, “the disciple whom Jesus loved” will teach us how much Jesus loves us and how His love is the true satisfaction of our souls.  Knowing Christ more intimately, as John did, will touch your heart and fill you with hope!

 Opening Your Heart and Touching the Divine will be held at St. Paul’s on Monday evenings beginning October 14.  There will also be Opening Your Heart sessions at St. Peter’s on Monday evenings, and for Moms on Wednesday mornings at St. Paul’s.  Interested in learning more?  Please join us for an Open House on Monday, September 9th at 6:30 PM in the Family Life Center at St. Paul’s, or at St. Peter’s Mission to find out what WWP is all about! You can also contact MJ Antone, 904-222-0608, mjstpaulre@gmail.com, or Jeanne Baranek, 309-532-7780, teambaranek@gmail.com or visit Walking with Purpose at www.walkingwithpurpose.com for more information.


WEDNESDAY MORNING BOOK CLUB RESUMES SEPTEMBER 4TH

Join us at 10:00 AM in Room 107 of the Family Life Center to meet Fr. L.C.M. Ibeh, a priest here in the Diocese of St. Augustine, who at the encouragement of Bishop Estevez, has written his story.  He will be here to sign copies and get us started in understanding his motivation to write this book.  Discovering that the Lord was calling him to the priesthood, he responds wholeheartedly to the Lord’s plan for his life. His journey is not an easy one; he encounters overwhelming obstacles and tough trials. Even so, he presses forward in fervent zeal, fixing his gaze on the Lord, understanding that the cross is inevitably part of following Christ. He trusts that God is at work in his life at all times, molding and shaping him into a vessel of love and grace. It is a story of the victory of faith! This book will inspire people who face difficult times to realize that the Lord has not finished with them. It will stir up in their hearts the desire to invite Christ to walk with them; and in doing so, Christ will turn their trying times into a story of triumph.  Books are $20.00, cash or check only.  Don’t miss this special opportunity!  Call MJ at 904-222-0608 with questions.
