ADULT BIBLE STUDY – STARTS MAY 9TH

THE BIBLE AND THE CHURCH FATHERS: As Catholics, we should want to know our family tree, our history, who has gone before, where they came from, and what they believed. This study program from the St. Paul Center with Scott Hahn will teach you everything you need to know about how the Bible took form, and its powerful effect on the Church Fathers. Join us live on Sunday mornings, or zoom on Monday evenings. Discover how the lives of the Church Fathers was transformed, and the power they have to transform your life. Twelve 90-minute sessions scheduled from May 9 to August 9. Check out https://tinyurl.com/SMS-CF-Register for a trailer video, study options, resources, schedule, registration, etc.

JOIN US FOR DAILY PRAYER!
When the Pandemic struck and the church was closed, we began a prayer experience using Zoom. We chat, begin with intercessory prayer, read and reflect on the Psalm of the day, and close with prayer. Starts every day at 8 AM and lasts about 15-20 min. It’s all good. Come and see. Come when it fits your schedule. Come when you need prayers. Come! Use this address with your online device to join us: https://tinyurl.com/SMSPrayAM

The Best Dad Ever

 

“Best Dad Ever is the story, made up of a bunch of shorter stories, of how my kids introduced me to God the Father. Each chapter focuses on a lesson I’ve learned about the Father’s love through my own imperfect and broken attempts to love and provide for my kids. It’s not a manual for parenting or a list of my credentials. It’s just example after example of an incredibly undeserving dad experiencing glimpses of God the Father’s perfect love as I try to figure out how to keep my kids alive.”
