St. Isidore of Seville, pray for us!

Today is the Feast of St. Isidore, Patron Saint of the Internet. Here is a prayer to help protect you when you surf the net:

Almighty and eternal God, who created us in Thine image and bade us to seek after all that is good, true and beautiful, especially in the divine person of Thine Only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, grant, we beseech Thee, that, through the intercession of Saint Isidore, Bishop and Doctor, during our journeys through the internet we will direct our hands and eyes only to that which is pleasing to Thee and treat with charity and patience all those souls whom we encounter. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

FULFILLED begins tomorrow!

Do you find that the only time you have to participate in a Bible study is in your jammies first thing in the morning at 6:00 a.m.? Are you a night owl and prefer doing studying Scripture after the late night news? Are you better at writing your thoughts down than participating in verbal discussion? Then this study is for you! We will meet only online and sessions can be viewed and discussion participation can be made at any time during the class time frame. Participants will view the videos online at and purchase their books from Ascension Press. Study discussion will take place on the Fulfilled Discussion board on our class dashboard at Ascension Press and on the Christ the King Adult Religious Education Facebook page. The discussion will be actively moderated/facilitated every Thursday between 9:00 – 11:00 a.m., though you are not required to participate during those times if they are inconvenient for you. In other words, post when you can and when/if you want!  Please email Gretchen for more details about how to log on and participate in this study.

If you are signing up now, I can send you temporary materials until yours come in from Ascension Press.  If you will need a copy to tie you over until delivery of your workbook, or if you have any questions, please email me at: gretchen@ckparish.org

 

The Journey Begins

This is the site of the new Christ the King Adult Religious Education blog where you can find all the same things we post on Facebook and in the church bulletin.  This site is brand new so please be patient as it gets up to full steam in the next few weeks!

Welcome on the journey to Christ!

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
