All women of St. Mary's and St. Michael's are invited to a book release party for "Gaze Upon Jesus" on October 2 at 7 PM at St. Michael's Social Hall.
What if you had walked beside the Virgin Mary from the Annunciation to the point at which she and Joseph found Jesus in the temple? How might seeing Christ as a child impact you and your faith?
Founder Kelly Wahlquist and ten other members of WINE uniquely blend scripture reflections, imaginative encounters, and visio divina “sacred seeing” with practical spirituality and discussion questions that will help you take a prayerful and creative journey through Advent and the Christmas season. Gaze Upon Jesus will appeal to women who want to deepen their relationship with Jesus during Advent.
At the Book Release Party, contributing author and St. Michael’s parishioner Stephanie Landsem will discuss the book and how you can join other women in a unique Advent scripture study. Books and the accompanying workbook/journal will be available for purchase and signed by Stephanie. We will also have social time, light appetizers and dessert along with wine, coffee and tea. The event is hosted by CCW, there is no admission fee but free-will offering is appreciated.
Please RSVP to St. Michael's Parish office (651-439-4400) or www.facebook.com/StephanieLandsem to ensure we have enough books for all. For more information on the book and the scripture study, please go to catholicvineyard.com

The Northeast ACCW Deanery is alive and growing. The CCW and Women’s groups are active and busy in our parishes. As I begin my second and final year of my term as NE ACCW Deanery President, I reflected on what this opportunity has meant to me and what we can do to continue to build our NE ACCW Deanery for 2018-2019. The opportunity to visit all of the Parishes in our deanery was a fun and I am inspired to continue to coordinate and share activities and events for the women in our Parishes. In addition, it was exciting to see many of the women from the NE Deanery at the April ACCW Convention at St. Michaels in Stillwater.
