Metanoia – A Journey With Christ Into Conversion

Starting Tue, Sep 19

Jesus invites each of us to an ever deeper and more profound conversion. This conversion – this metanoia – is a constant need. This continual need for conversion should be for us a source of hope and encouragement that keeps us seeking the transformative grace of God’s Holy Spirit. Metanoia will turn us from the things that keep us complacent and bring us into a radical relationship with Christ. Metanoia ultimately turns us to Jesus. This 10-part series will help deepen your understanding and experience of this process of ongoing conversion.

The accompanying book is highly recommended to use alongside this study: Living Metanoia: Finding Freedom and Fulfillment in Christ. For more information or questions, please contact Paul Ambro at

Our tentative schedule is listed below. Sessions will be held in St. Helen’s Braden Center from 7:30pm to 9pm. You can also subscribe to our Adult Faith Formation calendar here: St. Helen Adult Faith Formation Calendar

Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother is an extraordinary pilgrimage that reveals Mary’s unique role in God’s kingdom and in our lives. Filmed on location in the Holy Land, Mary: A Biblical Walk with the Blessed Mother will place you in the midst of the powerful drama of her earthly life, taking you through her joys … and her sorrows. You will learn how she works in our lives today, drawing us ever closer to her divine Son. Seeing Mary in this way will change you forever. Mary will become a part of your daily life, and in your daily life, you will become more like Christ.

Linda’s Bible Study Group

Starting in October!
A Clear Path to a Deeper Relationship with God

Cultivate a Rich and Lasting Prayer Life
You might find it difficult to find time to pray or you’re unsure what to do when you do pray.  You might struggle to trust God and surrender to His will. Even the saints struggled in prayer, had complicated problems, and made mistakes. They were like us, but each time they fell, they got up again and learned to rely more on God’s grace, and eventually they were changed.  What God did in countless saints, He wants to do in ordinary people like us.  We will learn how to pray with the same consistency, trust, peace, and passion that led the saints to deep transformation in their souls.  Begin your journey of prayer rejuvenation and strengthen your relationship with God so that you can give God your entire heart.

*All classes are held in the church parlor.  To get to the church parlor, enter the side-entrance of the church under the bell tower, continue down the hall until you see the open double-doors on the left.  NOTE: There will be no classes held on 11/23 or 11/24 due to it being Thanksgiving week.
Registration is required.  Please register for this class at:
