Our Lady of Guadalupe offers two bible study courses per seasonal semester (Spring and Fall). Currently, we will be offering the following bible study topics:
What does your relationship with Christ look like? Do you see Jesus as simply a great teacher? A prophet? A man of great wisdom? Or do you see him as more? Jesus calls us to be more than simply believers—he calls us to be his disciples and his friends. Do you consider yourself a disciple and friend of Christ? The Gospel of John shows us that God became like us; he became a man so that we could become like him and grow closer to him. Follow Me: Meeting Jesus in the Gospel of John is your guide to a personal encounter with Christ.
If you want to know what it means to really follow Christ, and if you would like to have a deeper relationship with him, then I invite you to join us for Follow Me, beginning on Wednesday, Sept. 18, 2018. You will not only benefit personally from being part of this study; you will also help us to grow in fellowship as a parish as we grow closer to Christ together.
Follow Me invites you to experience the joy of a renewed friendship with Christ. You will learn what it takes to follow him. You will experience the joy of divine friendship, and you will see how God— and only God—can satisfy the deepest desires of your heart.
Participants of Follow Me will receive a workbook on our first meeting date and will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship. The 30-minute videos, presented by Dr. Edward Sri, will guide you through the Gospel of John. Dr. Sri will explain how Christ’s encounters with his disciples, the Samaritan woman, the man born blind, and others, are examples of how he lovingly and persistently calls each of us to a more intimate and life-changing relationship with him.
Deadline for early registration is Friday, Aug. 24, 2018. We will begin Follow Me on Wednesday, Sept. 12, 2018 at 9:30 AM in the Parish Hall.

Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of nine weeks you will discover how to place yourself in the presence of God. Following the wisdom of the saints and the Tradition of the Church, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer, and how to make prayer an integral part of your daily life.
Oremus includes video presentations by Fr. Mark Toups, lively small-group discussions, and inspiring readings and reflections for each day.
The lessons learned in this study touched my soul in such a way that my desire to pray more and draw closer to Christ has become a part of my everyday life.” – Nancy D.
