Queen of Heaven: Mary's Battle for You
Embark on a journey that begins before time itself, when Mary was only an eternal thought in the Mind of God, and extends into her life in Scripture. Discover Our Mother throughout centuries of Church history, as she intervenes at pivotal periods—especially at her most famous apparitions, when she made roses bloom on a hillside in Mexico, when she made a miraculous spring of water rise from the ground in Lourdes, and when she made the sun dance at Fatima

Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues

Join Bishop Robert Barron for this engaging presentation concerning the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another. Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven levels of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory.  Pride, envy, anger, sloth, gluttony, avarice, and lust are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, which are the “seven lively virtues." The seven lively virtues offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.

Wisdom Circle: Exploring the Spirituality of Aging
 

This is a discussion and faith-sharing group centered on the subject of aging. Participants will explore their concerns and blessings in light of their faith and relationship with God. Some questions we could explore are: Who am I now?; How has my spirituality changed and matured over time?; How do I make decisions at this time of life concerning loss, downsizing?; What are my thoughts about end-of-life issues?
