Christian Education: The Beatitudes Of Jesus

THE BEATITUDES OF JESUS IN SCRIPTURE AND IN LIFE. Will be offered for Adult Education and will bridge both Lent and Easter. The program will start on Wednesday March 18th. The classes will be for six or seven session. Classes will start following Wednesday Mass. We hope to offer a pot luck dinner along with the classes. For the sake of good order classes will be 7:00- 8:30 P.M.

What does it mean to be “blessed?” Such as “blessed are the poor…” does it mean to stand in favor with God? Or, does it mean to prosper in some way? Let’s find out together.

Workbooks can be ordered through the church at $10.00 each. If you cannot afford the whole amount just ask Fr. Terry for scholarship and you will receive your workbook.

A sign up sheet is located for both Pot Luck and Classes in the Parish Hall.

Thanksgiving Is an Action Word.

The siblings are: Derrielle aged 10, Derri aged 11, and Roderick aged 13. Using this blog post I want you… yes YOU… to work with me in affording these kids a real break that will change their lives. Here is why:
