Lectio: Peter – Cornerstone of Catholicism

Tuesdays, October 4 – December 13 in person at Good Shepherd

  • Morning Session: 10 – 11:30am
  • Evening Session: 7 – 8:30pm

The character of St. Peter is both inspiring and confounding to many of us. How could a stubborn and impulsive fisherman become the “rock” upon which Jesus would build his Church? Bringing together biblical accounts, historical evidence, Church teaching, classical art, and personal insights, Dr. Tim Gray gives a fresh perspective on Simon Peter that is immediately informative and relevant to our lives. After all, if Jesus could bring out the very best in someone like Peter, then there is hope for the rest of us.

Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist

4-week study on Wednesday nights: April 27, May 4, 11, and 18 at 7 – 8:30pm

In this Year of the Eucharist, join Father Tom and fellow parishioners for this stunning series on the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist. Each evening will include a video presentation, light snacks and fellowship, and small group discussion.

James: Pearls for Wise Living

Tuesdays, March 15 – May 24, in person

  • Mornings: 10 – 11:30am
  • Evenings: 7 – 8:30pm

Join us for this 11 week in-person study of the Book of James. “In James: Pearls for Wise Living, Jeff Cavins shows how the teachings of James speak to those of us who feel torn between the competing demands of this world and our faith.”
