“Living the Scriptures”
Tuesday Bible Study Group
Is accepting new members for Spring.

When: Tuesdays, Apr. 14 thru June 2, 10:00-11:15 a.m.
Where: 3510 Vivian Av. – the Faith Formation office building
Cost: $7.00 total for 8 week series

Enjoy the Sunday readings together!
Meet fellow parishioners!
Share how the Word of God comes alive in your life!

Our Tuesday morning Bible Study program is turning over a new leaf. We’re still using the very popular “Sunday by Sunday” bible study guides to each week’s Sunday Mass readings, which are published by the Sisters of St. Joseph. We’re accepting new members for our next season, starting April 14 and running through June 2, with the option to continue weekly for as long as you want after that. Small group, informal atmosphere, friendly, prayerful, relaxed. Take some time out for the Word of God, enrich your understanding of the readings you’ll hear each Sunday at Mass, and explore how to live the meaning of the scriptures in your daily life and in our world.

For information or to register, contact Rosie Stahl, our study group convener, 651-483-6936, or Lucy Arimond, Director of Faith Formation, 651-415-3331, Arimond@stodilia.org.

The 7 Secrets of Effective Fathers
A program for Fathers of all ages

Its mission is to inspire and equip men to be more effectively engaged in the lives of children. Whether you are struggling with a newborn, a teenager, or simply want to be a better dad, this 3-week program will help you improve your fathering skills.

Rick Storms, a St. Odilia parishioner since 1989 and volunteer instructor for the National Center for Fathering, will facilitate this program. Rick is involved in many volunteer activities at St. O’s and in the community. Rick has taught this class previously at St. Odilia, at other churches in the Twin Cities and in the corporate setting since 2002. Rick and his wife, Jan, have two daughters in their 20’s who still help them refine their parenting skills.
