Walking with Purpose is a Catholic Bible study program that aims to bring women to a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We offer personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges and struggles with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Catholic Church.
Please listen to the podcast above to hear two Walking with Purpose members talk about how the apostolate endeavors to meet women where they are, giving them practical Biblical teaching that is consistent with Church doctrine and uses the Catechism of the Catholic Church as an additional resource. All Bible study materials have received the imprimatur from the Archdiocese of Baltimore, and vary in length and depth of study in order to meet the varying needs of participants.
Walking with Purpose has three elements:
Our parish programs for Walking with Purpose take place on Wednesday mornings from 9:30-11 a.m. and Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in the Lyceum Auditorium. So many women across the country have been called to come back to the community through a WWP study. The response to Discovering Our Dignity this season has exceeded all forecasted expectations and WWP has sold out of all available copies.
Supply chain and shipment issues are being experienced by industries throughout the U.S. this year. We are currently working with our printer to see what can be done to move up our printing timeline; as of right now, the next print of Discovering Our Dignity will not be available until early 2022.
Please let me know if you have registered, but have not purchased your book so I can group those women together. The only thing we can offer women who do not have a book is a round table that can study the Scriptures (First reading, Second reading, Gospel) for the upcoming Sunday Mass together. These groups would be able to meet at the same time and place, but no group moderators are available. Let me know if you’d like to lead one of these groups.
We will move forward and plan to meet next Wednesday, October 6, and Thursday, October 7, for our first meeting.
