Walking With Purpose Open House is scheduled for Saturday, June 3rd

Join us in the Beitel Commons on Saturday June 3, 2017 anytime between 10:30am until 12 Noon for an Open House to learn more about the Walking with Purpose (WWP) programs and to get registered. The WWP programs are for all women ages 18 and up, Catholic, non-Catholic, practicing or non-practicing. Refreshments with a “Tea” theme will be served with plenty of social time!

At 10:45am, there will be a brief presentation of what WWP is and what programs will be offered in the Summer and Fall. You will quickly realize that WWP is not your typical Bible study. Through personal study and small group discussions, the group helps to link our everyday challenges with solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church. Registrations for the book study in June and the Bible study in September will be accepted at this Open House.

Should you have questions or need more information, please contact Angela Linnane at 740.972.4088 or via email at

Kids age 4 to 5th grade will learn how Mary leads us closer to Jesus and the importance of making Jesus King of our lives in our Cool Kingdom Party program. Powerful teachings, great new music, creative crafts and yummy snacks all work together to create a fun week for both kids and volunteers alike. Registration forms coming soon!

NEWS FLASH– We are looking for an underwriter to help fund VBS so we may offer this program for free for the children. We are stepping out in faith.
