REVISED Living the Beatitudes Class Schedule

In the Sermon on the Mount found in the Gospel of Matthew, Jesus presents a series of basic attitudes his followers should have in relationship to God and to one another. These Beatitudes are central to Catholic life and morality because they present a pattern for personal holiness and happiness. In each Beatitude, Jesus applauds those who are poor, who recognize their need for God, and who find their treasure not in earthly riches, but in God’s faithfulness and love. They also remind us, however, that there can be no compromise between two masters: between hearing and doing God’s will! This is our challenge and our commission … to be “Beatitude People.” Join us as we explore the Beatitudes. Each week we’ll “break open” one or two of the Beatitudes, use clips from various movies to show the Beatitude in lived practice, discuss how we can live these values in our own lives, and pray.

Women in the Old Testament Class Schedule

While the men of the Old Testament often garner the most attention, the women of the Old Testament

also have much to share with us. The women of this study are mothers and wives, queens and slaves, prophets and warriors, powerful women and victims. They can be bold and decisive as well as meek and faithful, but each one plays a powerful role in God’s story of salvation found in Sacred Scripture. You are invited to join us for this 10-week study as we explore the unique contributions of these extraordinary women of faith. All are welcome – newcomers and experienced Bible students alike!

Catholic Basics
These 30-minute videos cover basic areas of Catholic belief and practice.

Bible Study on the Gospel of Matthew
Sessions will last approximately 30 minutes and will cover a chapter at a time.

Since the Gospel of Matthew is the gospel we’ll hear throughout the year,
it’s our hope that this study of the words and teachings of Jesus as presented
by Matthew will enrich our hearing of the Gospel message — helping us better
understand and experience the voice of Jesus speaking to us today just as
powerfully as it did for the community for whom the Gospel was first written.


When we offered this study “in person” at the beginning of the year

we had 150 participants. Now, through the wonders of technology,

we can reach even more people — fulfilling Jesus’ command

to preach the Good News to the ends of the world!
