St. Teresa of Avila: Teacher of Prayer

At the heart of this study is the passionate, unrelenting love of St. Teresa of Avila, the famous 16th century Spanish nun who became the first female Doctor of the Church. With her feminine heart and deep spiritual wisdom, St. Teresa helps us embark on the spiritual journey that takes place within our souls. She guides us through what she coined "The Interior Castle," where Christ abides in the center of our being. Her profound insight, conveyed in this study, leads us to a deepened relationship with Jesus, which empowers us to become pioneers like St. Teresa of Avila, forging our way with love through the new, exciting, and often challenging frontiers we face in life.

Thursdays, 9:15am in the parish annex.

St. Catherine of Siena: Setting the World Ablaze


In her mere 33 years she left such a rich legacy that she is named a Doctor of the Church. She is best known for The Dialogue, a book of meditations and revelations in which she shares intimate conversations with God. She used her ‘feminine genius’ to address the problems the world presented her and her words will ring as true today as when she first exhorted fellow Christians: “Be who you are called to be and you will set the world ablaze!”

Mondays, 6:15pm in the parish annex.
