Join us on Sunday, October 13th, for the Coffee Social. Stop downstairs in the Church Hall after all the Masses.

Adult Theology Enrichment Sessions

Wednesday, October 16, 2019 - 4:00 PM Gladwyne Fire House.

Thank you to all those who joined us for our first Adult Theology Enrichment Session on Wednesday, September 18th! Our first topic was on prayer. Prayer is simply a conversation with God. We learned about how God seeks us first, and how the normative way that God speaks to us is through the Scriptures.

We invite all PREP parents and others to join us for our next session which will take place on Wednesday, October 16, at 4:00 - 5:00 PM in the Gladwyne Fire House.

Monday Evenings, September 16 - October 28, 2019

Parish Prayer Study - 7:00-8:00 PM

Our Lord teaches that prayer is a relationship and a vital necessity. And yet, many of us have difficulty committing to daily prayer. Join us for a 6-week video-based study featuring Dr. Tim Gray and discover how to have intimacy with God through Lectio: Prayer. All sessions will be held in the Parish House at 7:00 PM.

Mondays, 10:00 A.M - Noon - Parish House
