CREATING SABBATH SPACE IN OUR LIVES
Join us for a 10 session small group retreat with Laura Baum-Parr facilitating a video retreat by Fr. Ron Rolheiser. The theme is Creating Sabbath Space in Our Lives. There is no cost to attend. Space is limited due to COVID-19 restrictions. Each gathering will include time for prayer, reflection, a video session, and discussion. We will explore the importance of carving out time for sabbath space in our lives, the benefits and challenges in doing so in today's busy society, and God's deep desire for us to celebrate life and affirm its goodness!
This retreat will be offered again in the Winter or Spring. Contact the parish office with any questions. Click the registration button to get on the mailing list for when it is offered again.
METANOIA- A VIRTUAL PILGRIMAGE TO THE HOLY LAND!
METANOIA – and believe in the Gospel. In the Gospel of Mark, the first words of Jesus are an invitation to metanoia, to repent, to change, to be converted. Every Catholic, no matter where we are in our faith journey, is invited to a deeper conversion. Metanoia is not a one-time event; rather, it is a continual process of turning away from the things of the world, from lies and sin and discovering a deeper union with Christ. Metanoia is a production of The Ministry of The Wild Goose and 4PM Media in association with Franciscan University of Steubenville and the Franciscan Friars TOR of the Province of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. The series is beautifully filmed on location in the Holy Land, highlighting sacred places such as the Sea of Galilee, the River Jordan, the desert of Temptations, and many of the holy sites in Jerusalem.
Meets Tuesday 1-2 PM at Sacred Heart Social Hall
September 15, 22, 29, October 6, 13, 20, 27, November 3, 10, 17

MOMNIPOTENT: FINDING PEACE, BALANCE, AND JOY IN YOUR VOCATION AS A MOTHER ONLINE BOOK STUDY FOR MOMS
Is being a mother what you thought it would be? The exhaustion, monotony, mounting unfinished projects, a loss of a sense of self... Too many moms, especially young and new moms, do in fact feel disillusioned. Maybe you feel you've been sold a bill of goods, that success and happiness are not possible through the vocation to motherhood. Many moms quietly resign themselves to the idea that success, happiness and fulfillment are things they will need to find in spite of motherhood, not because of it.
In Momnipotent, Danielle Bean understands all this first-hand and meets women where they are. With great wit, wisdom, and compassion, she provides much-needed encouragement to all women and beautifully resonates with their feminine hearts.
Meets Wednesday 3:30-4:30 PM at St. Agnes
October 5, 12, 19, 26, November 2, 9, 16, 23
Cost: $30 (includes: book, journal, and online video access)
* Independent at-home study option is available! Contact the parish office for more details or click the registration button to sign-up. Please register by September 23rd.
