New Altus for Women Reading Groups Forming!


Do you wish you knew more about your Catholic faith? Does your faith need refreshing? Would you like to meet other women of faith for support and encouragement? This fall, join women all over the Diocese meeting in small groups to read and discuss the book Walking with Purpose by Lisa Brenninkmeyer. Sometimes life gets “stuck on the spin cycle.” Drawing from her own experience of balancing marriage, motherhood, and work, Lisa helps uncover the key to living a busy life with inner calm. Learn how to experience joy and contentment when we give our all to what God considers most important. The abundant and purposeful life we were created to live is just around the corner!
Reading Groups are sponsored by Altus for Women, a Catholic women’s ministry in partnership with the Diocese of Scranton’s Office for Parish Life. Altus Reading Groups will meet for 8 sessions from September 27th through November 15th. Please contact (Eileen Gallik, 570-253-4561, eileen.stjohns@gmail.com) for information about the meeting time and location for St. John the Evangelist’s Altus Group.  The cost of the study is $35 (which includes your book and study guide). Online registration/payment opens August 28th at www.altusforwomen.com. Please join us!
