Beginning this September!
This year the Church of Saint Paul is offering two Bible study tracks that begin this fall. Sessions are offered on Tuesdays at 10:00am and 7:00pm and include a DVD presentation and small group discussion time.
Track 1: The Bible Timeline: The Story of Salvation featuring Jeff Cavins
This 24-part study is a fascinating Bible study that takes you on a journey through the entire Bible. Go deep into each period of salvation history and discover the amazing story woven throughout all of Scripture. If you have never done a Bible study, or would like a solid understanding of how the major people, places, and events of the Bible fit together and reveal the remarkable story of our faith, then this study is for you! This study is from September 20, 2016-May 23, 2017. Cost is $45.
Track 2: Lectio: Evangelization and the Acts of the Apostles and Lectio: Peter, the Cornerstone of Catholicism
Join us for two separate new studies from the Augustine Institute, one in the fall and one in the spring. The fall study, Lectio: Evangelization and the Acts of the Apostles, is presented by Dr. Mary Healy and runs from September 20-December 13, 2016. The spring study, Lectio: Peter, the Cornerstone of Catholicism, is presented by Dr. Tim Gray and runs from January 17-May 2, 2017. Attend just one or both (you can register for the Evangelization study now and the Peter study this winter). Each study cost is $35.

YEAR OF MERCY
December 8, 2015 - November 20, 2016
"Pope Francis has invited us to observe a special jubilee Year of Mercy starting December 8, 2015...As we enter this Year of Mercy we need to pray that the Holy Spirit will prepare our hearts, not only to receive the gift of God's mercy, but also for the grace to be able to share that gift of mercy with others...however you prepare, I ask that you lift up your brothers and sisters to the Lord who are most in need of His mercy, and ask God how He might want to use you to be an instrument of His mercy during this special year." Fr. Tim Norris
Please join us each day at 3:00pm to pray the Novena and Chaplet of Divine Mercy as the church bells ring.
You can also listen to the latest "Mercy Minutes," those testimonies given before weekend Masses during the Year of Mercy:
February 2016 "An Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy" - Fr. Mike Schmitz
