UNLOCKING THE MYSTERY OF THE BIBLE: Rouses Point, NY

Offered at St. Patrick's Parish Center in Rouses Point Thursdays of Lent at 6:30 PM starting March 2. This eight-part study with Jeff Cavins makes the complex simple. With DVD presentations and small group discussions questions, the program helps uncover the story woven throughout Scripture so that you can get the “big picture” of the Bible and understand what it is all about. The Bible is a story about the Father’s unfailing love for you - a love that you are now called to share with others. Call the Rectory for details: 518-297-7361

CATHOLICISM-PIVOTAL PLAYERS: Rouses Point, NY

Fr. Stitt will be hosting a video series on Sundays of Lent. The videos are from Bishop Barron’s new program, CATHOLICISM: The Pivotal Players, a multi-part film series that illumines a handful of saints, artists, mystics, and scholars who not only shaped the life of the Church but changed the course of civilization. Bishop Barron was the keynote speaker at the Lake Placid event last fall, and is now on a new journey to unlock the truth behind the Catholic Church’s most influential people, including St. Francis of Assisi, Michelangelo, and St. Catherine of Siena. Please consider joining us at the Champlain Catholic Men’s Club (the former K of C Hall) on 3 Oak Street each Sunday at 1:00PM from March 5 to April 9. Each session will last 1.5 hours. Refreshments will be served. All are welcome.
