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, Pam Salem at 810-877-1477.

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! ”


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 Molly 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!

Well-Read Mom

Sisters, do you need an excuse to sit and read good books? Well-Read Mom is a Catholic book club that draws women (not just moms) together to read and discuss great books and spiritual classics. Last year we read Steinbeck, Dorothy Day, and Anne Bronte, among others. This year we’re reading Brother Lawrence and T.S. Eliot, along with other classics. Membership in Well-Read Mom also offers access to great reading suggestions for all ages of children. Monthly meetings will be held at Holy Family starting on Thursday, September 7, at 7:00 p.m. in the Fr. Bush Parish Center (large hall). If you are interested, please contact Elizabeth Petrides 810-265-4189, or visit wellreadmom.com to register or for more information.
