Walking With Purpose

Walking with Purpose (WWP) is a weekly women's bible study that through personal study and small group discussions helps to link our everyday challenges and struggles to the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Church. Do you crave meaningful connection with other women at St. Mary's? Would you like to know more about how Scripture relates to your everyday life?

If so, we invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose at St. Mary's Parish. Join us Thursday evenings beginning in October.
St. John Neumann Church – Seelos Hall
Thursday, October 5, 2017, 7:00 – 8:45 p.m.

We will be offering 2 different courses beginning in the Fall of 2017:

1) "Opening Your Heart, The Starting Point" - This ia a great course if this is your first time joining Walking With Purpose (no previous background necessary).
2) "Keeping in Balance, Creating Order Within" Part 2 - This is for those who have already completed the Opening Your Heart study.  Keeping in Balance will explore biblical ways that we can manage life's pace and pressure while living with calm and steadiness.  We are taking two years to complete this study. Part 2 will run from October 2017 - April 2018.
