The women's Bible Study is composed of parishoners interested in learning and sharing the Word with each other.  It is a lovely group of women who meet on Thursday mornings from 9:30 till 11:30.

We begin in the Chapel for the first half hour, during which we say a prayer, listen and sing a meaningful song.  Then we break into groups and proceed downstairs to the classrooms for an hour discussion of questions and answers.  Each group has a faciliator or leader.  We choose a study that Fr. Prince approves for each session.

There are two sessions in the calendar year. One beginning in September ending prior to Thanksgiving and the other in Mid January which usually ends the week prior to Easter.  There are required reading on part of the participants with questions to answer. Participants are never obliged to answer all the questions, but we welcome you to participate as we learn from each other in our sharing time.

When we regroup at 11:00AM for a synopsis.  After  each session we have a fellowship brunch in McKeon Hall and during the Christmas season we go to Keeler Tavern for the luncheon.  It is a wonderful way to learn the Word while sharing and supporting each other.  For additional information, please contact  Anita Morris or Deb Varnerin.

“Listen to the noise they make like the rumbling of chariots, like the roar of fire sweeping across a field of stubble, or like a mighty army moving into battle”” - Joel 2:5

Ears are sensitive organs and loud noises can damage them. If you have trouble hearing the person next to you speak, the noise is already in the danger level. Normal conversation, alarm clocks, and street sounds measure 80 decibels (dB) which is just under the point that is safe (85 dB). Sounds from rock music, chain saws, subways, lawnmowers, and snowmobiles range from 90-110 dBs and over time will cause hearing loss. To prevent this type of permanent loss, wear earplugs to soften the sound and when possible, limit your time around any loud noise.
