We are so excited to announce the third installment of our 'Advent with the Almighty' series! Please join us here on YouTube on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout Advent, where we will prepare for Christmas together by exploring the role of Joseph in Jesus' birth and life, as well as the example he sets for us in many aspects of our daily lives.


The Scriptures remind us that the voice of God often comes in a still, small voice (1 Kings 19:11–13). Practice listening for God’s voice, and invite the Holy Spirit to speak to your group of Confirmation candidates, catechists, or other adults through a prayer service composed by Julianne Stanz. The prayer is inspired by Shhh…God Is in the Silence by Fiona Basile. A copy of the book is needed for the prayer service readings.

Lectio Divina, “divine reading,” is a way to connect with God’s word through prayer. It’s sometimes described as reading scripture with the “ear of the heart.”

The Lectio Divina prayer method was founded by Saint Benedict and Pope Gregory in the 6th century, although its roots date back to the Christian scholar Origen in the 3rd century. It has been a core part of monastic life for centuries but has been growing in use outside the monastery too. Over the last century, Lectio Divina has become more widely practiced within the Catholic church, as well as with Protestants. It’s a prayer method with deep roots and a powerful connection to God.

This form of prayer is different from reading the Bible for study or analysis. Rather the passage is read as the living Word of God, through which he can speak into your heart.

Living in the Father's Love: This brief but powerful six-lesson Bible study is the ideal way to revive and refresh yourself. Discover just how much God loves us and how the Gospels are deeply relevant to our relationship with God and with those we love. If you are just curious about Walking With Purpose or even new to Bible study in general, this six week study is a wonderful place to start and get to know the women of our parishes while going deeper in your walk with the Lord. Discover your true worth and purpose while growing in ability to see your life from God’s perspective. This is a beginner level study.

Beholding Your King: We live in a self-centered culture that all too often leaves us feeling empty and dissatisfied. A fuller view of God and His glory is the perfect antidote, which you will experience in Beholding Your King. Receive an increase of trust in God as you see His plan unfold throughout Biblical history. In this 9-lesson study we will widen our lenses while renewing our vision of God’s majesty. We’ll study King David, select psalms, the temple, and many Old Testament prophets and see the ways in which they all point to the coming King of Kings, Jesus Christ. This nine-lesson Bible study is the second part of a two-part series and is ideally completed after Beholding His Glory.


Facilitator: Gini Mita

Beginning with the Gospels and Acts and continuing through the letters and final book of the Bible, Panorama of the New Testament invites us into familiar scenes but with a wide-angle lens to capture the big picture. For newcomers to Bible study, this is a wonderful place to begin to put the pieces together; for seasoned Bible students, this study identifies major themes that emerge throughout the New Testament books.
