Cost for Materials: $35
No pre-registration needed – just show up!
If we consider that God is the Divine Bridegroom and the Church is his Bride, then the prophets can be seen as “spiritual marriage counselors.” They afflict the comfortable and comfort the afflicted, calling us to return to our covenant relationship with God. They urge us to repentance, warn us of the dangers of sin, and announce the blessings of faithfulness. Their prophetic words speak to us even today, as they draw us closer to our heavenly Bridegroom.
We read scripture, discuss in small groups, watch engaging DVDs, and socialize with women of all ages. Being a part of this group can be a life-changing experience in growing closer to our Lord!

History of Coffee Break
More than 20 years ago, our parishioner, Loraine Pellegrino, asked our pastor for approval to begin a Bible study series at Corpus Christi. She coordinated with Denise Halloran, (our former director of children's faith formation) to gather the women of the parish and take a "Coffee Break" to study scripture!
This women's scripture study program meets weekly on Wednesday mornings for a number of sessions depending on the length of the study. New studies usually begin each September and January and there is a small fee for materials.
The format includes personal study along with the weekly small group meetings to share your reflections. Childcare typically provided, please inquire upon pre-registration.
