Walking with Purpose: Touching the Divine, a study of the Gospel of John

Touching the Divine Bible study (Second Edition) is a study focused 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. Saint John referred to himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved.” Through John’s eyes, we learn how
much Jesus deeply 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!

Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come. Perhaps no book of the Bible fascinates people more than Revelation. Yet relatively few people have studied it, especially from a Catholic perspective. Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come is an intriguing eleven-session study program that shows how the kingdom established by Christ in his Church is intimately connected with the kingdom of heaven. In this study, presenter Jeff Cavins pulls back the veil on the rich symbolism present in Revelation. Discover what Revelation’s mysterious figures and images mean and see how Revelation is more than an apocalyptic vision of the “end times.” Explore the Church’s teaching on the second coming of Christ and the Last Judgment. Understand how God, the Divine Bridegroom, and the Church, his spotless bride, enter into a heavenly, holy, and mystical marriage every time we celebrate Mass. The study begins at 6:30 pm, Wednesday, September 6th, in room 313 of Sacred Heart Cathedal School.
Faith of Our Fathers: A Study of Fathers in Scripture-Every family needs a father. A father who is present, a father who is firm and fixated on the truth, a father who knows patience and how to forgive from the depths of his heart.  All men are invited to join us on Wednesday evenings for “Faith of Our Fathers: A Study of Fathers in Scripture,” where we will encounter the stories of 5 real and imperfect men in the Bible whose fatherhood ultimately led to the birth of Jesus Christ. Each week we will pray together and read from scripture about these men, discussing their fatherhood and our own, and work together to develop concrete actions we can do to better ourselves for our families. In the final week, we will culminate our study by examining God the Father, who is the model for all fathers, and whose grace will ultimately strengthen us to carry out our rich and meaningful vocations. This course will begin Wednesday, August 30th, at 6:00 pm.
In-Depth Look at the Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5)-Galatians chapter 5 lists the fruit of the Spirit. Exhibiting the fruit of the Spirit flows out of our intimate relationship with God and the workings of the
Holy Spirit. Manifestation of the fruit in our lives doesn’t just happen; they need to be pursued and cultivated. In the study sessions, each fruit will be considered and discussed in detail. Relevant teachings of Jesus and the Apostles from the Gospels and letters, Church teachings presented in the CCC, and relevant writings of Church theologians will be discussed in the group sessions and contrasted with the common ideas/definitions of them, as presented in standard dictionaries and modern secular culture. Study group members will be encouraged to actively participate in and contribute to these discussions. This study will take place on Wednesday evenings, starting September 6th, from 6:30-8 pm and the last nine weeks.
Discover the Amazing Riches of the Catholic Faith:

What is the Catholic Church all about? What does it mean to be Catholic? What do Catholics actually believe? 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. The Church faithfully proclaims the fullness of faith, leaving no truth out. It proclaims the fullness of life, leaving no person out. It calls all to repent and to believe in God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the source of all life and salvation.

Maybe you’ve been Catholic your entire life. Maybe you’re just beginning to explore the Catholic Faith. Wherever you may be in your journey, you will be profoundly moved by the beauty and the richness of the Catholic Church. Join us for this fantastic 10-part journey starting Saturday, September 16th, at 6:45 am.
