WOMEN'S BIBLE STUDY
Join us for a 9 week study on “Missionary Discipleship” by Stephen J. Binz to be held every Thursday from September 23rd thru November 18th in Annex Room 1. Two in-person sessions will be offered: 10:00-11:30am and 7:00-8:30pm . Discipleship is a call to go inward, to experience an ever deepening encounter with Jesus Christ, and a call to go outward, to witness the good news to others. Explore how the call to evangelization is at the heart of Scripture, and how disciples are called to be missionary witnesses of the gospel, living the gospel with joy and hope for the sake of the world. For more information or to register contact Linda Nichols at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215-256-4941. Please register by September 16th. There is a nominal fee for the study guide.

SAINT MARY PRAYER GROUP
We have great news!! During COVID and up until now we have been meeting mostly virtually. It’s time to make the shift from virtual back to a "in person" prayer group. We meet in Annex Room 1 on Monday nights at 7:30pm. Come, meet old friends and new, and once again experience in person fellowship, praise, and worship. Virtual will still be available for those who do not live locally, or are not able to come, but our goal is to see each other once again in community. Come one, come all, come as you are! We look forward to seeing you in PESON!
Saint Mary Church is a community of Catholics, striving to be an open and caring people, living our failth, spreading God's word, and serving Jesus' disciples to our families, our parish and our surrounding communities.
