MOMS GRACE WITHIN is a ten-week program focusing on the gift of motherhood and the love and faith shared among families. The program encourages and affirms moms through discussions led by a team of facilitators. It allows women to gather together to form a group of mutual spiritual support. MOMS introduces women to opportunities for personal and spiritual growth within a faith sharing group. It increases communication skills and the use of prayer rituals in the home. Each session provides a group experience of praying, learning, listening, and ministering to each other.
MOMS FROM A MOTHER’S HEART is a ten-week program focused on further enriching the personal and spiritual growth of mothers. Each session provides a group experience of praying, learning, listening, and ministering to each other. Please note, MOMS Grace Within is not a pre-requisite.
The Spring 2017 registrations for MOMS Grace Within or MOMS From A Mother’s Heart are now closed. If you would like to be added to a wait list please contact email@example.com
No previous Bible study experience needed! All you need is a Bible and a willing heart. And you do not need to be able to attend every meeting; come as often as you are able. This is intended to be an ongoing spiritual “support group” of moms who share a desire to grow closer to the Lord.
Meetings are held on the first and third Monday of the month, from 7:45 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., usually at Sofia Livorsi’s house (5766 Broadway Terrace) but occasionally there may be a change of location. If you are interested in joining the group, contact Sofia at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 447-1448.
Over 100 children enjoy a busy week at Vacation Bible School. The children learn about their faith through music, art, and lots fun. Information about this year’s VBS.

grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity
which you have conferred on me.
Let me realize that not even the angels
have been blessed with such a privilege—
to share in your creative miracle
and bring new saints to heaven.
Make me a good mother to all my children
after the example of Mary,
the Mother of your Son.
Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary,
I ask your continued blessings on my family.
Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth
and attain the eternal happiness
of your kingdom in heaven.
