Women’s Emmaus Scripture Study 2017-10-27T11:36:02+00:00

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).

FALL 2017 STUDY:
8 week study beginning  October 12th “WISDOM: God’s Vision For Life”

This fall we will begin with a newly developed 8-week study by Jeff Cavins entitled: “Wisdom: God’s Vision for Life”.  In everything from friendships to finances, making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and wellbeing. Drawing on the ‘wisdom literature’ of the Bible – Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, Ecclesiastes, Job and the Wisdom Psalms – “Wisdom: God’s Vision For Life” provides sound guidance on attaining wisdom. The study begins on Thursday, Oct. 12th in the Parish Hall from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. The cost for material is $20.00.

 

 
 ALL women are welcome!  If you would like to participate in this study, please contact Pat Piccoli at gnocchi46@comcast.net or call her at 561-339-8439.
