Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism

Have you ever been unable to explain why Catholics believe what they do? Have you ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament? God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith in the Old Testament. It was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament. Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan.

We begin this study on Thursday, September 20th at 8:45am in the Parish Hall.  Sessions are about 1 hour in length and will be offered on Thursday mornings thru October 11th.  There is no cost to attend any session.

Man UP

 

St. Vincent de Paul Parish is launching a new program geared to men starting on Friday morning, September 21st.  “Man Up” is a men’s faith and fellowship program.  The format consists of breakfast, DVD and small group discussion.  The DVD content will vary, but will focus on topics that help men grow in their Catholic faith.  Small group discussion provides the opportunity to dig into the material in more detail, share your thoughts as well as benefit from the experiences and collective wisdom of other participants. 

 

We invite all men of the parish to join us!  Our parish and our society at large, need faithful, Catholic men committed to, knowledgeable about, and on fire for their faith.  Man Up provides you with a concrete step you can take in your faith journey.  The group will meet weekly on Friday mornings in the Parish Hall as follows (we meet early Friday morning so that you can fit this into your busy schedules):   

5:45AM – 6:15AM:  Doors open / breakfast 

6:15AM – 7:15AM:  DVD and Small Group discussion  

 

Please join us as the Man Up kicks off on Friday morning, September 21st.  Please contact any of the Man Up Core Team if you have any questions, or visit our new website.

Walking With Purpose - Enabling women to know Christ through Scripture.

 

Walking With Purpose is a Catholic women's Bible study that aims to bring women into a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church.  Please feel free to contact Therese Peck at 309-692-5460 or tlp1007@comcast.net with any questions you may have. 

If this is your first time attending Walking With Purpose, Opening Your Heart is the study for you!  We will meet on Wednesday evenings from 6-7:30 pm for Opening Your Heart

If you are continuing the study, this year is Touching the Divine - The Study of the Gospel of John.  We offer two sessions, both with the same content.  The Wednesday morning session will meet from 9:30 - 11 am.  The Wednesday evening session will meet from 6 - 7:30 pm.
