Revelation Scripture Study

Unpack the Mysteries of Revelation! Perhaps no book of the Bible fascinates people more than Revelation. Yet relatively few people have studied it, especially from a Catholic perspective. Revelation: The Kingdom Yet to Come is an intriguing eleven-session study program that shows how the kingdom established by Christ in his Church is intimately connected with the kingdom of heaven. In this study, presenter Jeff Cavins pulls back the veil on the rich symbolism present in Revelation. Discover what the mysterious figures and images of Revelation mean and see how Revelation is more than an apocalyptic vision of the “end times.” Explore the Church’s teaching on the second coming of Christ and the Last Judgment. Understand how God, the Divine Bridegroom, and the Church, his spotless bride, enter into a heavenly, holy, and mystical marriage every time we celebrate Mass. Register today!

Women’s Retreat: Perfect Love Drives Out Fear

Let the Peace of Christ Rule Your Heart in a World That Wants to Rule All of You. Pope Benedict XVI asked, “How can we experience peace within ourselves, in spite of problems, darkness and anxieties? ” Not only did he ask, but he answered, giving us the key to unlock the doors to the interior peace which we ought to have amid the sometimes tumultuous and confusing events of history, events whose meaning we often do not grasp and which disconcert us. With highlights on history and glimpses of humor we will look at some practical ways we can experience inner peace in a world ruled by constant chaos, confusion, and noise.  Kelly Wahlquist, founder of Women In The New Evangelization, returns to St. Francis de Sales January 22-23 for our annual Women’s retreat. She and Alyssa Bormes will present talks on our parish the me: Perfect Love Drives Out Fear Reconciliation, Adoration, fellowship, lunch, shirt, inspiration and so much more! Friday: 7-9 PM registration opens at 6:30 pm;  Saturday: 9 am-4 pm registration opens at 8:30 am.
