Walking With Purpose


Returning in Fall 2022 for in person and virtual meetings!
Come and see what this fresh and relevant Catholic Scripture-based program for women is all about!

In 2022-2023, we will be covering the Walking with Purpose book: Discovering Our Dignity. This study offers an opportunity to grow in faith and your knowledge of Scripture, all while connecting with other women from the parish.  No prior Bible study experience is necessary!  We welcome women of all ages and backgrounds!

Discovering Our Dignity begins September 14th and ends in March 2023. There are 2 options:

  1. In-person from 9:30am to 11:30am on Wednesdays at OLGC.
  2. Zoom from 7pm to 8:30pm on Wednesdays.

Each session will have breaks for holidays.  We will meet once a week to discuss the weekly lesson. Every 4-5 weeks a Connect Coffee is scheduled as part of the study. Connect Coffees feature an inspirational video by author Lisa Brenninkmeyer, fellowship, food, and drink.

We encourage enrollment before the beginning of each course season; however, you are welcome to join in at any time during the year.

Please see below for a brief description of the books we will be using this year.  For more detailed descriptions, or more information about the WWP ministry, please visit www.walkingwithpurpose.com, or feel free to contact us 

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.

Through their stories recorded in Scripture, women of the Bible reach out to touch our “present” in a tender, honest and loving way—woman to woman—with ancient wisdom, sage advice, and insights from sorrowful failures and emotional wounds.

Learn how God worked in the lives of Biblical women:

Sisters Leah and Rachel overcame jealousy when they learned that God offered all that they really needed

Abigail’s faith was so strong she didn’t despair, no matter how unpleasant life was with her husband

Deborah had been given grace by God to act as His prophet, for the good of her people

Mary the Blessed Mother’s “yes” to God—her fiat—changed everything. How else did her words and deeds influence Jesus, and vice versa?
