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:
We’ll be starting a three-week study on Mary, beginning Monday, April 9, 2018, from 7:00-8:30PM. On Wednesday, April 11, 2018, from 1:30-3:00, we’ll be starting a three week study on “Easter: Season of Light and Fire.” If you’d like to participate, contact Peggy Casing, at least one day prior to get materials to prepare.
Christian Classics Book Club (CCBC)
If you think that you’d like to participate in a book club that features books with a moral, or deeper meaning, especially if that book club meets for one, meaningful conversation about the entire book, we have the group for you! Our next book is, With God in Russia: The Inspiring Classic Account of a Catholic Priest’s Twenty-three Years in Soviet Prisons and Labor Camps, by Walter J. Ciszek, S.J., and Daniel L. Flaherty, S.J. Join us on May 21, 2018, at 7:45 PM, for a discussion with a great group of readers! Feel free to contact Peggy Casing for further information.
Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained We meet on select Sundays from 12:15-1:30 PM, with “drop ins” welcome! Consider joining us on April 22, 2018 for Part 2 – “God’s Plan for Sexuality.”
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.
