Walking with Purpose

Resuming Fall 2023

Walking with Purpose is a Catholic Bible study for women that aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Christ. Through personal study and small group discussions, the group helps to link our everyday challenges with solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church.

Women’s Gospel Reflection

Thursdays at 9 – 11 a.m.
St. Joseph Center

Would you like to strengthen your relationship with Jesus Christ?
Would you like to learn how to apply the wisdom of Jesus to your everyday life?

Gospel Reflection is a Bible study focusing on the upcoming Sunday’s Gospel reading. All are welcome to join Thursday morning to read the upcoming Sunday Gospel together in a casual environment.

No need to sign up or commit. The Gospel is new each week, so you can drop in any time. Come when you can, come as you are, and do not worry when you cannot. There is no preparation necessary. Just bring yourself and grab a tea or coffee and listen to and reflect upon this Sunday’s Gospel.

For more information contact, Cathy Szczerba at 810-656-7752.

The “reflection” portion of our meetings is guided by, The Better Part, A Christ-Centered Resource for Personal Prayer, by Fr. John Bartunek.

“The book we use helps us to discover new things about the gospel and how we can apply it in our lives! I hate to miss a week, but if I do miss, there is no pressure or guilt in missing. Come as you are! ”


Discernment of Spirits

April 20 – June 8
9 – 11am
St. Joseph Center

God, is that you? Why is praying easy sometimes and hard at other times? Study the 14 rules of discernment through a highly visual hands on way.

St. Ignatius has been a trusted guide for the spiritual life for over five centuries and tackles these and other types of spiritual questions that we wrestle with and ponder.

Teachings presented by Theresa Vandercar, certified in Spiritual Direction from Franciscan University. This is open to all women. 


Meals for Moms

This is a wonderful ministry to support new moms and families by providing meals in the first few weeks after bringing your baby home. Our team sets up a schedule for meals, usually 3 weeks of Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our volunteers sign up for a day that suits their schedule and will bring your meal in a disposable container (no need to wash and return dishes).

To participate, expectant families can contact either Elizabeth or Vicky during pregnancy so we can set up the meal schedule. Anyone wanting to help provide meals for our new moms can also contact us to volunteer. We look forward to hearing from you!
