Ladies, you are welcome to join St. Michael’s MOMS (Ministry of Mothers Sharing). MOMS provides spiritual enrichment for women of all ages and life experiences. Women meet based on the call of holiness, community, mission and ministry, and the call to Christian maturity. Women gather together to form a network of mutual spiritual support and affirmation that will provide a group experience of learning, praying, and ministering to each other. MOMS will introduce women to opportunities for personal and spiritual growth in a faith sharing group that will increase communication skills and the use of prayer skills and rituals in the home. MOMS is an opportunity for women to reach out and become leaders in the Christian community while enriching family spirituality as well. MOMS has a day and an evening class available.
Our day MOMS class meets on Tuesday mornings from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. starting on 9/2/14
. Our day class will be taking a summer break from 6/17/14 to 8/26/14 and will resume on 9/2/14. And our evening MOMS class meets on Tuesday evenings from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. (currently active weekly). Nursery (children 3 months up to 11 years old) will be provided for each of these sessions as long as advance notice has been provided.
The only cost associated with MOMS is the expense of the book that we discuss. The current book we are discussing can be purchased via Amazon.com in the amount of $13.18, and it will be the responsibility of the individual to purchase the book.
Imitating Mary: Ten Marian Virtues for the Modern Mom (Catholicmom.Com Books) Paperback by Marge Fenelon (Author), Lisa M. Hendey (Foreword)
In an age of much mothering advice but few admirable role models, award-winning Catholic journalist Marge Fenelon delves into ten instances--and corresponding virtues--of Mary's life that reveal her as the ultimate example and companion for the modern mom. In this first and only book to offer Mary's life as a template for living as a faithful Catholic mother today, the Mother of God is presented as the ideal guide for the vocation of Catholic motherhood. A new addition to the CatholicMom.com Book series,
unpacks Scripture and Catholic tradition to examine ten biblical climaxes, including Mary's betrothal to Joseph, the Annunciation, the scene at the foot of the Cross, and Pentecost. In these scenes, Marge Fenelon introduces readers to a Mary who faced challenges familiar to every mother--impatience, frustration, sacrifice, and grief--and demonstrates how, in the face of these ordinary obstacles, Mary's response was an extraordinary example through the virtues of patience, joy, trust, and faith.
