===== Remain In Me Series

Summer Series on the Eucharist:

Join us for any or all of this 5-part small group series: Remain in Me (based on a work by Cardinal Blaise Cupich and further developed by the Archdiocesan offices of Lifelong Formation and Divine Worship) hosted by the Evangelization Team on Wednesdays: June 19, 26, July 10, 17, 24 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm in the Old White Church.
 
Our time together will include video presentation, self reflection questions and small group discussion based on Take, Bless, Break, Share: A Strategy for a Eucharistic Revival, by Cardinal Blase Cupich,
 
June 26th – The Eucharist as a Matter of Life and Death:  In this second reflection, we are invited to pray about, contemplate, and discuss the great importance of worship and how the Eucharist is vital to our lives as Catholics. As we ponder the Bread of Life as God’s response to the deepest hunger of the human heart, may we grow in the desire to receive “The Eucharist as a Matter of Life and Death.”
 
June 19th – Week One: The Imperative of Worship: In this first reflection, we are invited to pray about, contemplate, and discuss the Catholic Tradition of the Eucharist as the central act of worship that sustains the life of faith.
 
All are welcome as we explore the Eucharist in our lives today, especially as our Catholic Church prepares for the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage to Indianapolis this July. Stop in the main church after the sessions to spend some quiet time with Jesus during Wednesday Holy Hour!

06.27.24 ===== Learning Event

 

 

 

Learning Event: St. Paul’s Life-Changing Vision of Marriage and the Christian Family

A beautiful reflection for everyone, especially couples!
 
 
Join us on Thursday, June 27th from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Old White Church to attend this video presentation by Dr. Brant Pitre.
 
One of the most controversial lines ever written belongs to the Apostle Paul, when he wrote: “Wives, be submissive to your husbands, as to the Lord” (Ephesians 5:22). In modern times, this single line has earned Saint Paul the hatred of radical feminists everywhere, as well as the embarrassment of many Christians who do not understand what he meant. Because of this teaching, Paul has been called a misogynist, a male-chauvinist, and worse.
 
But for Catholics, this is not acceptable. For Catholics, the writings of Saint Paul are not just the opinions of one ancient Jewish Rabbi from which we can pick and choose.  They are the inspired Word of God, in which “everything asserted by the sacred author must be held to be asserted by the Holy Spirit” (Catechism of the Catholic Church #107). If this is true, then we must ask: What is God trying to teach us in Ephesians 5? What does it mean when the Holy Spirit inspires to Paul to teach that wives should be “submissive” to their husbands?
 
In this exciting study we will learn:
-Why Saint Paul’s message needs to be understood in light of the paganism of the Roman empire, which was destroying the ancient family—just like it is today.
-How the husband is an image of Christ, and the wife is an image of the Church.
-Why Saint Paul’s teaching does not justify the abuse of spouses or the inferiority of women.
-Why pastors cannot continue to avoid talking about the spiritual headship of the Christian husband.
-How Saint Paul’s teaching for Christian husbands and wives gives biblical solutions to two of the most common causes for modern-day divorce.
 
We hope you will join us for this evening of learning in our faith!

===== National Eucharistic Pilgrimage
