Registrations are first-come, first-served

Every year, many of our parishioners ask me if there is a course they can take that is similar to RCIA for already-practicing Catholics.  In answer to many prayers, this Symbolon video series was developed to help people grow in faith and love of Jesus Christ.  This is ideal for both practicing Catholics and neophytes (new Catholics) who have just completed RCIA (the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults).

Designed with RCIA in mind, Symbolon uses prayer, video teaching, discussion questions, a catechist summary, a call to conversion, and a recommended Celebration of the Word of God. 
This class will be held Tuesday evenings at 7 p.m. beginning September 15, 2015 for a 20-week duration.  There will be no classes December 22 and December 29th due to the Christmas break.

Your instructor is Mr. Bob Lawrence, an experienced catechist and parishioner who has facilitated Bible studies for many years. 

Please complete and return the registration below with your payment. Registrations without payment will not be accepted due to the limited size of this class
.  Due to the limited number of registrations we can take, parishioners will be given first priority for this class. 

If you have questions, please contact Beth Crouch, Dir of the Office of Evangelization, at 972-243-7104 ext. 46.  You also can visit the website to learn more about this series.  SymbolonCatholic.org or Augustineinstitute.org. 

The
2 workbooks for these sessions are full-color and are wonderful tools to keep in your home libraries for years to come.

Please return this REGISTRATION FORM with payment by September 7th
OR
Register online HERE

NOTE: If the class is already full, your payment will be returned to you.   A second session may begin in Winter 


Small Groups now forming for
“Forming Intentional Disciples”

Recently we invited 20 members of the Parish community to take part in a 6-week book study of Sherry Weddell’s book “Forming Intentional Disciples”.  In this study, we learned to recognize the different thresholds of conversion: were people at the trust stage? The curiosity stage? Or maybe they were already at the “openness” stage.  We learned what to do to help seekers get to the next level on their path to Jesus!

Each participant came away from the book study with more tools to help them evangelize in their daily lives.  A good majority of these 20 people will now be heading up their own small group book studies of this exciting, life-changing book.  If you want to be a part of one of these 6 to 8 week book studies, please call the parish office and ask for Beth (972-243-7104 ext. 46) or email her at bethc@maryimmaculatechurch.org.  A form also will be available in the Narthex soon where you can indicate your preference for evening of the week or time of day that you are most available to be a participant.  The groups will be kept very small, so let Beth know immediately if you want to participate. 

 


The St. Therese Study   *  A 10-Week Spiritual Enrichment Program for Adults

Based on the book I Believe in Love: A Personal Retreat Based on the Teachings of St. Therese of Lisieux by Father Jean CJ D’elbee

The book and the study is a program designed to help each of us more fully understand the depth of God’s love for us.  We will develop a greater understanding of the Gospel and the beauty and importance of the Sacraments of the Catholic Church.   Presented in a small group setting, this “Joyful Journey” will help us to be better parents, spouses, friends, neighbors and apostles for Christ.  It is a practical guide for each person, no matter where they are on their spiritual journey.  It is not an examination of our past.  It is a tool for spiritual living that can be applied to all that we do each day.

Need more info? Call Beth, 972-243-7104 ext. 46 or bethc@maryimmaculatechurch.org


CATHOLIC SCRIPTURE MATCH (Dot Com?)
 
We are so excited you are interested in pursuing a Bible/Scripture Study.

Catholic Scripture Match is Mary Immaculate’s vision of matching people up with the books of the Bible they want to study, the types of study, the day and time of the week, appropriate groups such as by age or marital status, etc. We hope to help you find other parishioners who are interested in the same studies that you are. We then will help you with details such as ordering studies for you, finding a place to help you study, etc.

If you have questions before filling out this form, please call Beth in the parish office at 972-243-7104 x 46, or stop in any Monday through Thursday morning at the parish office.

Once you have filled in this form, place it in a sealed envelope and drop it off at the parish office with Beth’s name on the front. Mary Immaculate Parish will not share this information with anyone, and it will remain confidential.

Adults of the Parish ---- YOU are Invited!

Mary Immaculate Parish Retreats



For Adults of all Ages
Mary Immaculate Parish Hall
Are you looking for a way to meet other parishioners and to help our parish grow as a faith community? Mary Immaculate offers parish retreats to encourage spiritual growth in our parish community. Many of us attend Mass each week but never have an opportunity to connect with our fellow parishioners. Oftentimes, we would like to develop our faith at a deeper level but making a formal silent retreat can be intimidating. Our parish’s Lifelong Faith Retreat is fun, convenient, and spiritually enriching. Come give it a try!
  • The retreats start on Fridays at 6:30pm with dinner and continues until 10pm. Everyone goes home to sleep and returns for breakfast on Saturday at 8:30am. There is a break for lunch, and we are finished by 4:00pm.
  • This retreat is geared for adults, where no one is forced to talk or share more than they are comfortable doing.
  • The price is very reasonable: free!!
Comments from parishioners who attended other retreats:
  • Very kind, pleasant, loving, enjoyable environment & group of people.
  • I love the way the day flows.
  • Received so much. Proud to be Catholic & Mary Immaculate parishioner.

Come and grow with your parish family at our parish retreat!
