Kingdom of Happiness

Thursday at 1:00 pm Begins Jan 18th 

Sunday at 5:30 pm Begins Jan 21st

8 week program

(online video streaming available with study guide)

In a world that offers fleeting pleasures in place of true happiness and false promises that actually lead us away from happiness, it’s time more than ever to turn to the Beatitudes and enter into the Kingdom of Happiness.

The Kingdom of Happiness will:

  • Show how the Beatitudes are much more than nice sayings, they are the path to happiness charted by Christ himself
  • Expose the “anti-Beatitudes” for what they are: the kingdom of man’s false promises of happiness that lead only to misery
  • Inspire a renewed resolve to live the Beatitudes through video profiles of real-life people living the Beatitudes in their everyday life.

Featuring teaching videos by Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, and powerful profiles of normal people living out the Beatitudes in heroic ways, Kingdom of Happiness will not only inform participants about the Beatitudes, it will show them the way to living them and achieving true happiness.

Study Guide $25

RCIA

 

 

Our Lady of Grace Parish welcomes all those seeking full communion with the Catholic Church.  The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program of catechesis to better understand Jesus Christ and his bride, the Catholic Church. 

RCIA is a process for bringing into the Catholic Church both those who have never been baptized (Catechumens) and those who were baptized in a non-Catholic Church (Candidates for Full Communion in the Catholic Church). RCIA also includes adult baptized Catholics who have not completed the Sacraments of Initiation – Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.

We will meet each Mondays at  7:00pm beginning on Sep 11th and will run until Holy Saturday Easter Vigil on Mar 31st. However, it is never too late to begin the process, please inquire at any time.

If you are interested in RCIA, we would love to have you! If you want some more information before signing up, please fill out the Inquiry Form and we will be in contact with you as soon as possible or you can contact Christine Corbly Christine@gracewepray.org or (803) 283-4969 ext 107.
