We will be using the Walking with Purpose book Study: Discovering our Dignity
Women of the Old and New Testaments were as flawed and broken as we can be, yet the power of God worked in their lives. Learn from their experiences in Discovering Our Dignity, a 22-lesson Bible study.
Please order your own book online prior to our first class at walkingwithpurpose.com
This is a Bible Study written for women by a woman who knows the everyday struggles and joys we face being wives, mothers, sisters, daughters and friends. Beautifully and simply written to guide us through Scripture, where we explore core questions that lead us to experience Christ personally, within the context of the Catholic Church.
Great Adventure Bible Study
The Great Adventure Bible Study will commence again starting this fall on Thursday evenings at 7:00pm starting September 16th. This Fall we will be conducting a 10 week study on the life of Jesus from Ascension Press. The course, Jesus: The Way, The Truth and the Life, is a new and fresh look at Jesus—who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, and what he did for our salvation. This encounter with Christ will inspire and empower you to center your entire life on him as you come to know and love him in an ever-deeper and more intimate way. The invitation is for anyone who desires to know Jesus better.
If you think you might be interested in attending please contact Mike Willis at: 734-502-5602 or call the Parish Office.
Fishers of Men
Join us as we get ready for the weekend through prayer, discussing the mass readings, and fellowship with other Christian brothers.

WHAT WE DO: We prepare for the weekend by reviewing the readings for Sunday’s Liturgy, watch educational videos, and pray together. Just show up, nothing to bring. Copies of the Sunday readings are provided.
WHEN WE MEET: Meetings are held from 8:00 - 9:00 AM every Saturday morning, regardless of location.
WHERE WE MEET: On the first Saturday of the month, the meeting is held at the back room of Kerby’s Koney Island Restaurant at Six Mile and Newburgh.

Presentation by Fr. Enno
Fr. Enno, a priest from St. Paul of the Cross Passionist Retreat and Conference Center, gave a presentation a few weeks ago at St. Edith's Thursday bible study class. Fr. Enno is originally from the Philippines and has a doctorate in World Religion from Notre Dame.
His presentation was titled “A Catholic reading of the Bible” and showed the Theoretical history of how the Church reads and interprets the Bible and how the Bible is used as the foundation for our theology as well as our spiritually. The second part of Fr. Enno's presentation relates to the first discussion with more detail of how during certain periods in time, certain books were moved to new locations to better put them in a better perspective and to make it easier follow. He mentions that some books were removed by Protestant sects. He mentioned that some people take a specific reading out of context which can change the overall meaning of what was meant to be conveyed.
Toward the end of the presentation, Fr. Enno had the participants break into groups to dissect a few readings and see how the meaning can change when read out of context, and how we can see several messages contained within one select reading.
Fr. Enno's full presentation is available as a series of short YouTube videos (linked below).
