Winter Study: “What We Believe: The Beauty of the Catholic Faith” ~ developed by Marcellino D’Ambrosio & Andrew and Sarah Swafford

“You are Peter and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.” Matthew 16:18

I believe in One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church!

The Catholic Faith is not something different from Christianity. It is simply Christianity with nothing left out. In January we will be studying “What We Believe: The Beauty of the Catholic Faith” developed by Marcellino D’Ambrosio & Andrew and Sarah Swafford through Ascension Press. In their 30 minute videos, they will take you through the eternal city of Rome, its churches, ruins & catacombs.

The Catholic church is extraordinary. Founded by Christ himself, the Catholic Church is where we encounter God in His Word, His sacraments, and His saints. I invite you to join us and experience this pilgrimage study, which will open up for you “the unfathomable riches of Christ” (Ephesians 3:8) through Sacred Scripture, videos & small group discussion.

Classes begin Thursday, January 18, 2024 in the Parish Hall and will continue to meet every Thursday from 9:15 a.m. to 11:15 a.m., through April 18th.

The cost of this study is $35.00. You can pay in cash or a check made payable to St. Jude Church and payment can be made on the first day of class. Scholarships are available for those with financial difficulties. (Please see Deacon Les or Pat Piccoli)

The purpose of this ministry group is to grow in love and knowledge of the Lord through the study of His Holy Word.  As stated by St. Jerome, “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.”  Gatherings promote self-study, group discussion and will often feature short lectures or DVD presentations. All members share the responsibility of creating an atmosphere of loving support, trust and encouragement where sisters in Christ can share their insights and experiences.  All materials are faithful to the Catholic Church’s teaching on Sacred Scripture. As is true of all other ministries, the most important element of this ministry is prayer.  Prayer brought this ministry into existence and has sustained it in our parish for many years.

This ministry gathers on Thursday mornings from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Parish Center and offers several studies during the year. Many women choose to attend morning Mass prior to the study (please check the bulletin or website for seasonal time changes).
