Next study

Facilitator: Dcn. Richard Dodd.

Time/location: 7-8:15 p.m.; Wednesdays, starting Jan. 13 / via Zoom

Dynamic Catholics invites you to their next study on the Matthew Kelly Book “I Heard God Laugh: A Practical Guide to Life’s Essential Daily Habit.” This study starts on Wednesday, Jan. 13.

Dcn. Richard Dodd will guide us through this book, which Holy Family gave out to parishioners as a gift on Christmas Day.

Is Your Life Working? Most of us are trying to put together the jigsaw puzzle we call life without a very important piece. Over time this becomes incredibly frustrating. In this extraordinary book, Matthew Kelly powerfully demonstrates that we cannot live the life we have imagined, or experience the joy we yearn for, unless we learn to tend the soul. From there, with his classic style of practical wisdom, he teaches us how to remedy this problem.

Book Studies

Holy Family’s Dynamic Catholics Group seeks to energize and empower individuals by fostering an environment throughout Holy Family that inspires all people to rediscover the genius of Catholicism, as described in popular Dynamic Catholic publications by Matthew Kelly and his team. By focusing on the Four Signs of Dynamic Catholics – Prayer, Study, Generosity, and Evangelization – the group members are supported as they develop a closer relationship with Jesus Christ and learn to become intentional disciples of our faith.

The development of the Four Signs of Dynamic Catholics is centered on the group’s book study program that is offered to all adult parishioners throughout the year at Holy Family. While many Dynamic Catholic books have been studied over the past several years, the group has also focused on a variety of other books and video presentations as well. Recent topics have included lessons on the Mass, the Holy Spirit, the lives of the Saints, the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the Sacraments.

In addition to the many benefits of studying the Catholic faith, the Dynamic Catholics book study offers Holy Family parishioners a chance to really get to know one another through the lively discussions and personal stories that are shared during each class. Lasting friendships and connections have been made between group members, which enables the Four Signs of Dynamic Catholics to take shape and impact lives.

Currently, book study classes are held on Wednesday evenings at 7 p.m. in the Parish Life Center and are open to all adult parishioners. Please contact the Dynamic Catholics team for more details.

Welcoming Committee

Another focus of the Dynamic Catholic group is to help welcome new parishioners and visitors to Holy Family Catholic Community. Several members of the group organize and manage a team of volunteers who greet parishioners on Sundays before and after Mass, staff the Welcome Desk in the church lobby, and coordinate a series of new parishioner events.

If you have a welcoming heart and a few hours to spare each week, please prayerfully consider joining the Dynamic Catholic Welcoming Committee! Participation in the book study is not required to get involved in the Welcoming Committee.
