Pop Moms

“The true way and the sure way to friendship is through humility – being open to each other, accepting each other just as we are, knowing each other.” Mother Theresa

The new Pop Moms ministry is designed to encourage women to engage in faith filled friendships and to support each other in our vocations as mothers.  We will meet on certain Friday mornings of the month in Croghan Hall from 9:30a-10:30a.  Our meetings will begin with a Rosary and meditation on Catholic motherhood, then allow for free discussion and enjoyment of each other’s company.  If you have any questions, please contact Annie Neds at hokiegirl17@yahoo.com.  No RSVP required!

EPIC: A Journey Through Church History

As Catholics, we are heirs to a remarkable heritage. The history of our Faith is so much more than a list of facts and dates. It is a fascinating story of adventure, rebellion, tragedy, and triumph. A story 2,000 years in the making, one word best describes Catholic history: Epic. Epic: A Journey through Church History is a captivating and fast-paced look at the story of the Catholic Church. Beginning with the lives of the apostles all the way up to the present day, Epic takes the immense history of the Church and simplifies it into twelve, color-coded time periods. In the course of twenty weeks, participants learn about the major people, places, and events that comprise the captivating story of Christianity. This study provides participants with an understanding of Church history that enables them to have a greater sense of meaning and identity as Catholics.

The twenty week course will be split into 4 five-week sessions.  The winter session focused on The Early Church.  The Spring Session focused on medieval history and the Holy Roman Empire.  The Summer Session will focus on the Protestant Reformation and the Catholic Counter-Reformation.  Dates for the Summer Session are 5 July, 12 July, 19 July, 2 August, 9 August, and 16 August. The session is offered on Thursdays at 10a and 7p in Parish House.   Pick the time that works best for your schedule.  For more information, contact Angela Calabro at angela.calabro@princeofpeacetaylors.org
