Walking With Purpose

Walking With Purpose (WWP) is a weekly women's bible study.  Through personal study and small group discussions, the daily challenges and 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?  Would you like to know more about how Scripture relates to your everyday life and grow in your faith?

If so, we invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose at St. Mary's Parish. Join us this Fall and discover something new!
Walking With Purpose meets Thursday evenings from 7:00 - 8:45 p.m. beginning in October.  Our first evening together will be October 1, 2020.  We will continue to meet through April 22, 2021.  All of our meetings will be held inside St. John Neumann Church where mass is conducted, to allow for social distancing.  There will also be an option to attend virtually.  
We will be offering two different women's bible study courses:
1.)  "Opening Your Heart":  This is a great course if it is your first time joining Walking With Purpose.  No previous background or experience is necessary - just a desire to explore the bold and beautiful plan that God has for you!  Come discover the meaningful and purposeful life you were meant to live!  Discover a personal relationship with Jesus and increase your trust in His unconditional love.
2.)  "Grounded in Hope":  This bible study is based on the letter to the Hebrews and guides you toward a greater intimacy and trust in Jesus.  You will learn about His ever sustaining mercy and grace as your true source of hope - especially during the challenging times in your life!  When we feel thrown off course or adrift, our faith in Jesus is an anchor to ground us despite our circumstances.
If you have any questions, please contact Caprice Turano at or Beth Crabtree at  
We hope that you can join us and come to know Jesus more personally and transform your faith!
