NEXT RCIA MEETING

WEDNESDAY - JANUARY 19, 2022 - 07.00 PM

January 18-25. January is a month when Christians around the world pay particular attention to the unity of the Church. Specifically, Christians dedicate an entire week during the month to pray for unity among the followers of Jesus and especially to overcome historical and present divisions that exist between church communities.

The 2022 theme for the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, “We saw the star in the East, and we came to worship him” (Mt 2:2), was prepared by the Middle East Council of Churches, based in Beirut, Lebanon. The international theme and resources speak to our world’s urgent need for solidarity and transformation in the face of political, economic, and social turmoil, including the challenges and injustices highlighted by the COVID-19 pandemic. As we join the Christians of the Middle East in the journey to Christ’s manger, may we become a sign of the unity that God desires for all creation, and may we return to our home, our churches, and our world by new ways.

BIBLE STUDY - SUNDAYS

JESUS AND THE END TIMES:

A CATHOLIC VIEW OF THE LAST DAYS

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE - ST. MATTHEW CHURCH

SUNDAYS - STARTING JANUARY 23, 2022 * 10.00 AM

08 SESSIONS

For more information contact Morgan 403-895-3763 (phone/text)

Have you ever wondered what the Bible teaches about what will happen at the End of Time? Many Catholics have heard about “the Rapture,” the coming of the “Anti-christ,” and the Second Coming, but are unsure exactly what to believe about these topics. Moreover, while Protestant Christians are often well-versed in the study of the “end times,” Catholics are often unfamiliar with what the Bible actually teaches. Many Christians are unaware that the Catholic Church has very explicit teachings about the Tribulation, the Antichrist, the Second Coming, and the New Creation.

If you’ve ever wondered about where this world is heading and what the ultimate destiny of humanity is, then you don’t want to miss this powerful study of the truth about what the Bible and the Catholic Church teach about the last days.

Jesus is our savior, our redeemer, our Lord, and our God. Our belief in Jesus is what makes us who we are as Catholics, as Christians, but do we really know him as we should? Is Jesus a part of your life, or is he at the center of your life as he should be? We invite you to make him the center of your life by joining us for Jesus: The Way, the Truth, and the Life, a 10-week video study program that explores the entirety of Jesus’ life and what he means for us as Catholics today.

HOLY HOUR ADORATION

ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOUSE - ST. MATTHEW CHURCH

TUESDAY - FEBRUARY 01, 2022 07.00 PM - 08.00 PM

MASS - 06.30 PM

Take a moment during your busy days to remove yourself once a month from that business of today’s life and come and spend some quality time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament in St. Matthew Church. Prayer and meditation before our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament are great ways to spend some special time with Jesus. You can ask Him for graces for yourself or for loved ones, reflect on His Word, or just keep Him company silently! Offer your precious time to Him - come for Adoration. Will you spend an hour with Jesus? Will you come?

We’ve all been shaken by the news from Kamloops and the horrific discovery made at the former Kamloops Residential School. It’s reopened old wounds that never really healed, and that are still extremely painful.

Our parish invites you individually or as a family to say the rosary with the help of the internet. "Come Pray the Rosary" is a perpetual rosary that allows people to say the rosary together on the internet. You can join with others and say the rosary in progress, or start it individually by choosing the mystery you want to say. Through this website, you can follow along as the Rosary is recited, with the visual aid of video from the Holy Land. You can literally see the places where the mysteries take place! You also can keep track of how many other people, around the world, are joining you in prayer. By clicking on the number of people praying and then the map, you can actually see the location of those you are praying with on a map. Please check out this great website at http://www.comepraytherosary.org/.
