WINTER BIBLE STUDY
STILL TIME TO JOIN US!
A Study on Evangelization using the Acts of the Apostles. Who better to look to for guidance on evangelization than the Apostles and disciples of the early Church? The bible study is a ten-part series that combines insightful biblical study with Church teaching and practical advice to show how modern Catholics can effectively impact their world for Jesus Christ. Topics such as the call of Jesus to evangelize, the power of the Sacraments, the role of charisms for building up the Body of Christ, techniques from St. Paul for reaching a secular culture, and more will be discussed.
CLICK HERE FOR REGISTRATION FORM, The cost for your book and class will be $14.

THE MONTH OF THE HOLY FAMILY
February is the month dedicated to the Holy Family. Though the start of the Lenten season changes within the calendar year, a fair-sized portion of February gives us a space of time between the Christmas celebrations and the increased focus on Jesus’s public life and ministry, which occurs in Lent. It is a transition from the feast of Christmas to the fasting of Lent. Therefore traditionally February has become a time to recall the Holy Family; within the Holy Family is where Jesus spent the time between his birth and embarking on his public journey

STAND OUT FOR LIFE
Saturday Morning, February 23, 2019 from 9:00 - 10:30 AM outside the downtown Planned Parenthood abortion facility (114 University Ave. 14605). We stand in love for the children in the womb being killed, the pregnant moms in need being exploited and wounded by the lie of abortion, and even for the abortionist and all abortion workers.
Together we can point the way to real help and support. Love will end abortion. The media, community leaders, and elected officials can ignore a gathering of 100 of us; but what about 500; what about 1000? Together we can make a big difference if we are willing to put our pro-life convictions into action by participating in this monthly event of Christian unity, prayer and peaceful public witness for the end of abortion. Do not be afraid and do not be ashamed Come, Stand Out for Life. You are needed!
Featured speaker for 2/23: Angela Kristan, M.D. Save the dates of future Stand Outs: 3/23, 4/27, 5/25, 6/22, 7/27
