Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundation of Catholicism

Wednesdays 7-8:30 pm or Thursdays 9-10:30 am

Starts on January 7-8, 2021

Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you stumbled when trying to describe the Scriptural roots of our Catholic faith?  If you answered “yes,” then Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism may be the study just for you.

Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism, led by Sonja Corbitt, is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament Tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. In this faith-sharing Scripture study, you will gain an understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of Scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic Faith with the Word of God.

Part One (January 6-7 to February 24-25) focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism, and more.

Part Two (April 7-8 to May 19-20) focuses on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more.

Cost: Both Parts $45; One Part only – $25

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible

A Quick Journey Through the Bible

Wednesdays 9:00 – 10:00 am or Thursdays 7:00 – 8:00 pm – ON ZOOM

February 3 – March 25

Many Catholics want to read the Bible because they know it is God’s Word, but they give up because it seems so complicated. Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible helps you get the “big picture” by showing how fourteen narrative books of the Bible tell the complete story from Adam and Eve to Christ and the Church. Presenter Jeff Cavins shows you how to read the Bible so that you can actually understand it. Aided by the unique color-coded Bible Timeline® Chart, which arranges the key people, places, and events of Scripture in chronological order, Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible will help you discover the story of salvation history and understand how you fit into God’s plan. This eight-session study program includes video presentations that explore all twelve time periods of The Bible Timeline Chart.  Marinell High will lead this study and we will have only the ZOOM option.  Register online at ………….. or call the parish office at 734-426-8483

Cost:  $25.00 for Study Guide, Timelines and online access

Real Suffering

Wednesdays 7-8:30 pm or Thursdays 9-10:30 am

Starts on March 3-4, 2021

During Lent (March 3-4 to March 24-25) join us in a four-week study entitled Real Suffering.  In our lives, we all experience suffering and often question why good people suffer.  The challenges of the 2020 pandemic and civil discord has imposed an additional layer of uncertainty and suffering upon all of us.

In Jesus’ Passion, Death and Resurrection, we have the key to discovering redemption in our suffering. Dr. Schuchts, founder and president of John Paul II Healing Center, explores this through the trials of Jesus, Mary, and Peter: Christ, in his physical agony on the cross, Mary, in the wrenching agony of losing her child, and Peter, in the shame he felt at denying Jesus. Through these prototypes of pain, loss and guilt, we see every facet of human suffering and can learn how to find hope and healing by applying them to our own stories.

Join us as Dr. Schuchts looks at human suffering through the lens of Church teaching and these three prototypes. Come view on video the witness of faith-filled people, and discover how it is possible to transform even the most bitter suffering into joyful participation in Christ’s ultimate example of redemptive suffering.

Cost: $15
