Please call MJ Antone at 222-0608 or email mjstpaulre@gmail.com with questions or more information.
All classes are held in the Family Life Center. 
All are welcome to attend and learn more about God, the Catholic Church and our Faith.


With the Catholic devotion and understanding of the true presence of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, the Eucharist becomes the “source and summit” of the Catholic life.  Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist provides an opportunity to explore the truth and beauty of the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and its members.  This study will be offered throughout the month of March on Tuesday evenings from 6:30-8:00, beginning March 3rd, and on Thursday mornings, beginning March 5th, from 11:00-12:30 in Room 107 of the Family Life Center.  Don’t miss this opportunity to grow as a parish family in our understanding of God’s true presence in our world today. 

  “We live in an age that does not orient the heart toward mystery. Consequently, too many Catholics approach the Holy Eucharist with—let’s be honest—indifference. The Augustine Institute has provided a much-needed tonic. Presence is a perfect blend of storytelling to fire the imagination, personal testimony to stir the soul, and theological instruction to inform the intellect. This lively and compelling series on the central reality of the Catholic religion is ideal for anyone who finds himself longing to love Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament more but not knowing where to begin.”              -Christopher Check, President, Catholic Answers

 


WEDNESDAY MORNING BOOK CLUB

Beginning March 4th at 10:00 in Room 107 of the Family Life Center, we will be reading Characters of the Passion: Lessons on Faith and Trust by Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.  We will be transported back to Calvary where those who played important roles in the passion story will be brought to life.  Their stories will teach us about trust, despair, egotism, power, politics, doubt, love, repentance, and more.  Books are available online from Amazon.com or any vendor of your choice.  All are welcome to join us and have your knowledge reaffirmed that true faith is the most powerful weapon in the world today.

 

 

 

 


ARE YOU INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE CATHOLIC FAITH AND NOT SURE WHERE TO BEGIN?  RCIA IS THE PROCESS OF BECOMING A CATHOLIC FOR THOSE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN BAPTIZED, WHO WERE BAPTIZED IN ANOTHER FAITH, OR WHO WERE BAPTIZED CATHOLIC, BUT RECEIVED NO OTHER SACRAMENTS. 

God always invites people into a deeper relationship – sometimes in ordinary ways and sometimes in extraordinary ways.  You may be experiencing the first urge to know about the Catholic faith or you may have been reflecting on this for some time.  Regardless of what has brought you to this place in your faith journey, it is our sincere hope that you take time to learn more about the Christian initiation process of becoming a Catholic.  Please call MJ Antone at 904-222-0608 with questions or to set up an appointment and register for our classes which begin September 11th.  Do not be afraid, you will not be alone in this journey!
