November-Month of the Souls in Purgatory
The month of November is dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. The Church commemorates all her faithful children who have departed from this life, but have not yet attained the joys of heaven.
One of the most commonly recited of Catholic prayers in times past, this prayer has fallen into disuse in the last few decades. Prayer for the dead, however, is one of the greatest acts of charity we can perform, to help them during their time in Purgatory, so that they can enter more quickly into the fullness of heaven.

November 16 – Saint Gertrude the Great
Saint Gertrude of Eisleben is the most celebrated of several Saints of the same name, and for this reason the ancient authors named her Gertrude the Great. CLICK HERE for more information on this beautiful Saint.

FALL BIBLE STUDY
A STUDY ON LECTIO DIVINA PRAYER
Prayer is as necessary for our spiritual life as breathing is for our physical life! If you agree with this statement, this study is for you. “Though prayer is one of the essentials of a thriving faith, we often feel as if we’re talking to ourselves or, worse, as if we’re talking to no one at all. How can something so vital to the Faith be so elusive?”
Prayer: Finding Intimacy With God includes: • The Lectio Divina approach of Reading, Reflecting, Responding, and Contemplating • Penetrating questions and insights for the six video sessions • Additional resources for a fuller understanding and application • Daily reflections to deepen the meaning of prayer in your life • Space for personal journaling.
PLEASE REGISTER EARLY Fall 2018 Bible Study Registration
