St. Mary's Church / Iglesia Santa María

Walking With Purpose/Ladies Parish Bible Study Program

Walking With Purpose is back this fall, starting Tuesday, September 28th!

All are welcome! No Bible experience or knowledge of Catholicism required. Women of all ages are invited (over 18 please).

No matter where you are on your faith journey, you are invited to participate in this parish-wide women's Bible study. Walking with Purpose® serves to help you deepen your relationship with Jesus Christ through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church, personal Bible study, small group discussion and community. Walking with Purpose is a faith community that supports, encourages, and challenges one another. It is a safe place where you will discover authentic friendships and meaningful discussions as your heart is transformed by the Word of God. It is everything you need to get back to living a life that you love.

Are you ready for connection? Our souls thirst for it. We were made for community, and it’s time to come back. God is ready and waiting for you to show up just as you are. He wants to see you discovering your purpose while connecting with a life-giving community. And God is not the only One waiting, we are too. The abundant life awaits us, and we’ve got an open chair with your name on it.

                                                                    "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine....                                                                                                                                      You are precious in my eyes and honored, and I love you."         Isaiah 43: 1,4

St. Mary's Walking With Purpose Bible studies will begin this year September 28th and continue weekly for the duration of the study, with breaks for holidays.  A calendar will be distributed to all registered participants. This year you can choose from two studies, but Opening Your Heart is always recommended for ladies beginning Walking With Purpose.

1. "Opening Your Heart" is a 22 week foundational Bible study, developed by Walking With Purpose, that is designed for women new to Walking With Purpose. Discover a personal relationship with Jesus and increase your trust in His unconditional love. This study is recommended as a starting point for women seeking knowledge and understanding about the foundational teachings of our Catholic faith. 

2. "Discovering Our Dignity" is also a 22-week study. Through this study, you will journey with Women of the Old and New Testaments and discover that they were as flawed and broken as we can be, yet the power of God worked in their lives. Through their stories recorded in Scripture, women of the Bible reach out to touch our “present” in a tender, honest and loving way -- woman to woman -- with ancient wisdom, sage advice, and insights from sorrowful failures and emotional wounds.
