Thursday Morning Bible Study

Contact:

This is a lively group that seeks to study the Bible for greater understanding and application to daily life. They study one book of the Bible at a time, using Catholic Scripture guides. Some members contribute to discussions with insights from various Biblical commentaries and with personal reflections, while others prefer to simply listen and learn. Sessions include shared prayer and faith sharing.

Meetings are every Thursday from 10:00 to 11:30 in Parish Hall. New members are always welcome!

Prayer Support Team

Contact: Charlotte Ross  304-428-8370, Kathy Pollock 304-295-9100, Beth McNally 304-422-4988

Christ encourages us to pray for one another. It is in this spirit that the Prayer Support Team was formed. The team is composed of those who pray daily for the general needs of the parish, as well as for urgent needs called in by parishioners. The coordinators relay these called-in petitions to team members, who pass them from one to another by phone, until all available team members receive the prayer request.

If you know of an urgent need for prayer, please don’t hesitate to call one of the team coordinators. You can also become part of the team – here’s a chance to provide important help for others without making a time commitment! You’ll pray in your own home, in your own way, on your own time. Just call a Prayer Team Coordinator and ask to be part of this ministry. Normally, team members are called between the hours of 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m., but emergency requests are relayed at once.

Centering Prayer Group

Contact: Sr. Molly Bauer (304) 424-6080

Centering Prayer is a way of cultivating a relationship with God. This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with him. The practice of Centering Prayer involves sitting comfortably in silence, ordinarily closing your eyes as a symbol of letting go of what is going on around you and silently introducing into your awareness a sacred symbol of your consent to God’s presence and action within.

Open to anyone who is interested, this group now meets by Zoom each Monday morning from 9 – 10 a.m.
