Join us for a special parishioner-led time of prayer every first Monday of the month in Room 1301 from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. We begin with songs of contemporary praise and worship, then discuss a topic to help us grow in our spiritual walk with the Lord. Then we pray for each other, the church, and the stuff of life. Everyone is welcome to join in this special hour of encouragement and blessing.

St. Odilia has a great tradition of parishioner-led book clubs, meeting here at the church, in parishioners’ homes, or at nearby libraries or restaurants. Some of the groups have been meeting for decades – they’ve been a treasured community connection. Our longtime “Spirituality Book Club” has switched to daytime meetings, on the third Thursday of every month, at a cozy, family-run restaurant just a couple of miles from here, in Roseville, and is inviting more parishioners to join them. At the September meeting, they chose this year’s books; click HERE to see the reading list. For further information, contact Mary Jo Rourke, 651-483-1228, firstname.lastname@example.org.

Meet fellow parishioners!
Share how the Word of God comes alive in your life!
Our Tuesday morning Bible Study program is currently full to capacity, but we have a waiting list, and will form a second study group if enough people are interested. The group is ongoing, from September through May, with back-to-back seasonal segments. 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. 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 one of our study group conveners, Rosie Stahl, 651-483-6936, and Mary Ann Ryan, 651-470-0590, or Lucy Arimond, Director of Adult Formation and Evangelization, 651-415-3331, Arimond@stodilia.org.
