The St. Lydia Women’s Study Ministry will continue its series on “Women of Faith” led by Father John starting October 7, 2014 at 9:30 AM. Each week the group will learn about a different woman from the history of the Church and her life in Christ. In our “troubled times,” we need the encouragement of those who have gone before us, whether they are faithful women of the Old Testament, New Testament or recent saints. We also need the encouragement, love and prayers of one another. This is not just about learning, it is also about sharing, in our uniqueness as women, the journey we are on toward our own salvation and sainthood. We will begin Tuesday, October 7 and meet approximately every other Tuesday in the Fireside Room. The church will be open for personal prayer and coffee will be served in the Fireside room at 9:30 am. The ‘study’ begins at 10 and ends at 11:15. We meet on the following dates:  Oct 7,21;  Nov 4,18;  Dec 2,16;  Jan 20; Feb 3,17; Mar 3,17; April 14, 28; May 12. Please come and invite others!
