The women's Bible Study is composed of parishoners interested in learning and sharing the Word with each other.  It is a lovely group of women who meet on Thursday mornings from 9:30 till 11:30.

We begin in the Chapel for the first half hour, during which we say a prayer, listen and sing a meaningful song.  Then we break into groups and proceed downstairs to the classrooms for an hour discussion of questions and answers.  Each group has a faciliator or leader.  We choose a study that Fr. Prince approves for each session.

There are two sessions in the calendar year. One beginning in September ending prior to Thanksgiving and the other in Mid January which usually ends the week prior to Easter.  There are required reading on part of the participants with questions to answer. Participants are never obliged to answer all the questions, but we welcome you to participate as we learn from each other in our sharing time.

When we regroup at 11:00AM for a synopsis.  After  each session we have a fellowship brunch in McKeon Hall and during the Christmas season we go to Keeler Tavern for the luncheon.  It is a wonderful way to learn the Word while sharing and supporting each other.  For additional information, please contact  Anita Morris or Deb Varnerin.

“Trust in Him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge.”  - Psalm 62:8

The holidays are supposed to be joyful so people who experience great sadness and depression often will not share their true feelings with others. Those who might have the holiday blues include parents whose children no longer live at home, seniors who are widowed or have lost many of their friends, and any person who is separated from family and friends. These losses and separations take the joy out of their holidays. To give them back some enjoyment, include them in your activities, encourage them to get involved in church and acknowledge their feelings and losses. Support them when they are blue.
