Opportunities for Adults to Learn and Share Faith
We have many opportunities for individuals to learn more about the Catholic faith, and to share in meaningful conversation with each other. From book clubs that discuss books with a moral, or deeper meaning, to bible studies, faith sharing groups, etc., we have something going on almost every day! Here are a few of the options:
For a Deeper Experience of Lent Our newest offering is a deep dive into the Sunday readings for Lent. Beginning on Thursday, February 15th, and continuing through March 22nd, Julie Lacki will be leading a discussion and prayer experience that is sure to enrich your experience of this Lenten season. The group will meet from 10:30-11:30 AM. No booklet or pre-registration is required.
We’ll start a study on the topic of “Lent: Season of Transformation” on Wednesday, February 14th, from 1:30-3:00 PM. This is a three-week study. If that time-slot doesn’t work for you, you might want to consider joining us on Monday, February 19th, from 7:00-8:30 PM for that same study. If you’d like to participate, contact Peggy Casing at least a few days prior to get materials to prepare.
We’ll be starting a three-week study on “Paul: Proclaiming Christ Crucified,” beginning March 7, 2018. This study meets on Wednesdays from 1:30-3:00 PM. This same study will also be offered on Monday nights, at 7:00-8:30 PM, beginning Match 12, 2018. If you’d like to participate, contact Peggy Casing at least a few days prior to get materials to prepare.
Christian Classics Book Club (CCBC) The focus of CCBC is to read books that would be found in a “classics” section of a bookstore, or more contemporary literature that is written to convey the complexities of spirituality, morality, or other aspects of living. Join us on March 19, 2018, at 7:45 PM, when we’ll discuss The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls, with a great group of readers! Feel free to contact Peggy Casing for further information.
Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained We have been meeting on selected Sundays from 12:15-1:30 PM, with “drop ins” welcome! We won’t be meeting in February, as previously scheduled, due to some scheduling conflicts in the building, and otherwise! Consider joining us for our next session on March 4, 2018, for: “Walk Through the Mass – Exploring the Sacred Liturgy.” For this, and many other adult faith sharing and formation opportunities, please contact Peggy Casing.
For these, and many other adult faith sharing and formation opportunities, contact Peggy Casing or (248) 243-0251.
Catholic Sacraments for Adults
It’s never “the wrong time” to contact Peggy about celebrating sacraments! If you are an adult who has “missed” celebrating a sacrament, if you have been part of another denomination, or any other circumstance where you now find yourself thinking about celebrating sacraments in the Catholic Church for the first time, please feel free to contact Peggy Casing to register, or to see what might “fit” for you.

Know Someone in Crisis?
We have a special outreach ministry here at St. Mary’s. We are happy to help those individuals in need of comfort in a time of sorrow, illness, or struggle. We provide that support through prayer and blankets or shawls that are knitted, or crocheted, by members of our volunteer ministry. If you know of a parishioner, or their family member who’d benefit from this ministry, call Peggy Casing at (248) 243-0251.
