    You’re Invited to Bible Study:  St. Paul's Letter to the Philippians may be short, but it packs a powerful punch! All are invited to come and discover scripture in a deeper way.  Join us for 6 weeks as we explore St. Paul's circumstances as he writes under house arrest in Rome. Paul reveals how he is able to joyfully share the Gospel despite his imprisonment.  Throughout his difficult circumstance, he paints a beautiful picture of what this means—a life lived out in humble obedience while emptying oneself for others.  For through our daily offerings, we are all called to strive after holiness by imitating Christ—specifically in Christ’s sacrificial gift of self. Come and be empowered by St. Paul's words which call on all of us to pour ourselves out as an offering to God, just as Jesus did on the Cross.  Group discussion will start Sat. March 2 at 7pm and continue weekly till April 6th.  Books cost only $9; make checks to St. Ignatius.  Contact Amy Mulhern at 507-421-1929 to register by February 15th.
