This Sunday, May 16th, 2021 at 4:00 pm will be a Rosary Walk. We will pray the rosary while walking the grounds beginning at 4:00, and then share a pot luck meal at the shelter. It is a great family tradition and helps the kids learn about their faith. The Center provides the meat and drinks, so please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Future dates are June 20th, July 25th, August 22nd, and September 19th. Pre-registration is not required.
Beginning on Tuesday, June 22nd, we will begin a short, five-week study of the biblical roots of the Mass called Parousia. Where do we find the Mass in the Bible? What is the relationship between the two? In the latest video Bible study from the St. Paul Center, discover why the liturgy is a major theme that runs through the entire Bible, from Genesis to the Book of Revelation. We’ll see how the New Testament is concealed in the Old, the Old is revealed in the New, and why both point directly to the Mass, the sign of the New Covenant. This is an amazing, brand new video production that every Christian needs to see! Classes will be on Tuesday’s at 10 am and 7 pm. Call 937-698-7180 to register. Cost is only $10 per person.
Beginning July 12th, we will have a book study on the book, Return: How to Draw Your Child Back to the Church. The statistics are troubling: 6.5 people leave the Catholic Church for every one that joins, and 50% of young people who were raised Catholic are no longer Catholic today. The Catholic Church is hemorrhaging young people. Behind these statistics are countless stories of wounded families. Millions of mothers and fathers are longing for their prodigal children to come home to the Church, crying: “Where did we go wrong?” The passive wait-and-see approach is no longer an option. We need a different strategy. We need to understand the real reasons why our young people drift away, and we need a game plan to bring them home. We need Return. Classes will be on Monday’s at 10 am. The cost is $15 which includes a copy of the book.
