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.

“Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit? ...Therefore, honor God with your body.” (1Cor. 6:15-20).

During February, we begin our Lenten journey and can use this time to reflect upon our physical activity. Maybe instead of giving up something this year, add something instead. People who regularly exercise live longer and feel better. Physical activity reduces weight, the incidence of cancer, and heart disease. Walking 2 miles a few times a week significantly lowers the risk of death in senior citizens. If you are not exercising, start slowly and share your plan with others. Doing so, increases will power and having the support of others is good for you and good for them. So, if you must give up something for Lent this year, give up the couch!
