Walking With Purpose

Walking With Purpose (WWP) is a weekly women's bible study. Through personal study and small group discussions, the daily struggles that we face in modern life will be linked to solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Church. Do you crave meaningful connections with other women at St. Mary's, and want to grow in your faith? Would you like to know more about how Scripture relates to your everyday life and all its challenges?
If so, we invite you to join Walking with Purpose here at St. Mary's Parish. Come discover something more! We always have a place for you!
Walking With Purpose meets Monday mornings (9:30 - 11:15 a.m.) or Thursday evenings (7:00 - 8:45 p.m.). Our first meeting will be an opening mass for everyone on Thursday, September 15, 2022. We continue to meet through March 30, 2023, with breaks for holidays. Meetings are held at St. John Neumann's (SJN) Seelos Hall (first Thursday of each month for everyone), St. Mary's High School (Thursday evening option), or St. Mary's Field House at SJN (Monday morning option). Virtual attendance is available. We also offer an abbreviated Summer Session.
We will be offering two different bible study courses:
  1. "Opening Your Heart": First time joining Walking With Purpose? No previous experience is necessary, just a desire to increase your trust in God's unconditional love. Discover or rediscover a more personal relationship with Jesus, and grow closer to the heart of God.
  2. "Ordering Your PrioritiesAND "Reclaiming Friendship": Feeling overwhelmed? Learn how to put the most important things first, especially the One who made us in His image. Want true connections? Learn how to experience God's joy and goodness in our friendships.
If you have any questions, please contact Caprice Turano at, Laura Wanderling at, or Anna O'Day at
We hope that you can join us and come to know Jesus more personally, and transform your faith! We welcome women of all ages and faith backgrounds.
