Paul’s letter to the Romans has been at the center of reflection, conversion, and controversy from the very beginning. 

Romans: The Gospel of Salvation is a new eight-week Bible study we are offering that will help you make sense of the difficult passages regarding faith, works of the law, and justification. It will give you an authentically Catholic, comprehensive, and simple way to understand this challenging epistle.

St. Mary by the Lake will begin Romans on October 1st at 1:00- 2:15pm.

Participants will meet every week to view an engaging video presentation by Dr. Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins, followed by a time of lively group discussion and fellowship.

For more information or to register contact Heather Warner at 262-639-3616 or [email protected]. We hope you can join us! No RSVP necessary and this study is free to all participants.

In this 8-session program, theology professor Dr. Andrew Swafford and Jeff Cavins examine Paul’s letter to the Romans. 


There is so much to know and ponder about our Catholic Faith, particularly about the sacraments. In a busy world, it is easy to go to Mass and Confession without cultivating a more mature understanding or deeper participation in the sacramental life of the Church.

This 4 session program is a much-needed opportunity to gather together and grow by asking questions such as “What is grace?” or “What do we mean when we say that the Eucharist is Jesus?”

It is also an invitation to begin a more sacramentally integrated life where the sacraments are more than weekly obligations or rites of passage. Your study group has the potential to change lives, and your willingness to lead is a gift to the Church.

Wednesdays - October 9, 16, 23, & 30, 6:00 – 7:15pm
