Two Spring Small Groups for Catholic Rebels

This spring semester, Catholic Campus Ministry is giving all of our Catholic Rebels two great weekly opportunities to join a CCM small group. Both groups will be reading and discussing a great Catholic book over the semester. Books will be provided for participants of each group, so be sure to come to the first meeting of whichever group you want to join this week!

1) Women's Book Study 
Tuesday nights, 8:15-9:15pm at the St. John's Annex Community Room

Led by Taylor Baronich, the Women's Book Study is open to all young women (undergrad, grad, young adult, Catholic, non-Catholic... whatever!). Join them for their first meeting tonight where they'll kick things off with informal fellowship and and a door prize. This semester, the group will be reading and discussing Mary Healy's book Men and Women are from Eden: A Study Guide to John Paul II's Theology of the Body, a book that explains God's design for our human relationships and the purpose of our sexuality!

2) Thursday Afternoon Book Study
Thursday afternoons, 1:00-2:00pm in the Baxter Room (next to Starbucks) in the J.D. Williams Library

Led by Dr. Melvin "Buddy" Arrington and Brad Noel, this small group is open to anyone and everyone. The first ("informational") meeting will be this Thursday (Feb. 6). This semester, they will be reading and discussing the book Forget Not Love: The Passion of Maximilian Kolbe, a biography of one of the most fascinating saints of the last century. The book explores the life of St. Maximilian Kolbe which was lived according to the maxim of "love without limits," from his childhood, through his life as a missionary and leader of the Franciscan order to his final act of love: dying in the Auschwitz concentration camp, voluntarily, for a man he did not know, as a "martyr of charity."

Two books...

Two awesome opportunities to fellowship and grow in your faith! Join us!
