C.A.F.E.—Coffee and Faith Encounter Women’s Study Group

This group was formed to fill the need expressed by some Catholic women in West Michigan to gather, pray and discuss current events and chosen readings. Our goal is to cover the four pillars of the Catechism of the Catholic Church in cycles: an article or book first focused on the Creed then Liturgy then Morality then Prayer—all with an eye to contemporary issues. While gathering in person is the goal this group also has a Facebook group, both as a way to include those who cannot a=end the gatherings and to continue the conversation between gatherings. Learn more on FB at Women’s CAFÉ— Coffee and Faith Encounter. This group meets on the second Monday of each month from 5:30—7:00 p.m. in the rectory conference room beginning September 9. Come in through the rectory door on Valley Ave. Visit

Adult Bible Study starting on September 10

The conflicts of the early Christians in Corinth are in many ways similar to our struggles today as Christians. They, too, witnessed division, scandal, immorality, persecution and other trials. In response, St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the Church as the Body of Christ, introducing them to the most powerful gift of all: the Eucharist. Join us for First Corinthians at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish at 156 Valley beginning Tuesday, September 10, 2019 from 7 PM to 9 PM . This is an eleven week study and should finish up before Thanksgiving. For more information or to register for the study call: Bettie McClintic at 616-288-5169 or via email: bambushka@ameritech.net Michael Tober at 616-459-8362 email: dre@sacredheartgr.org. Please feel free to bring along a friend or two.
