Winter Bible Study: Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance – starting January 23rd/24th
Paul’s letter to the Ephesians reveals many remarkable gifts that we as Christians are given in the Church. This letter tells us about the nature of the Church – as a body, as a household, as a mystery, as a communion, as a bride, and as an army. It shows us the great inheritance that awaits us as sons and daughters, adopted fully into the family of God. It reveals how God’s great love for us can transform our daily lives if we allow it. Ephesians: Discover Your Inheritance is an 8-part Bible study that will enrich your faith, and show you how to live it out.
Cost for Materials: $20.00. This is an eight-week study. We will have a Monday evening, 7-8:30 pm, and a Tuesday morning, 9-10:30 am, session.
Please register with Denise, 630-718-2156 or [email protected] by January 10th to ensure materials by 1st session.

The Fisherman’s Net – Saints Peter & Paul’s New Evangelization website
The Fisherman’s Net is an outreach of the New Evangelization at Saints Peter and Paul Church in Naperville, IL. It is our hope that through the Fisherman’s Net, quality, authentic Catholic teaching can reach those individuals, whether in our pews or across the world, who cannot attend our live events.
The New Evangelization seeks to deepen the faith and commitment of all Catholics by calling them to a more profound relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ in words and deeds. Distinct but not separate from classical evangelization that seeks to bring the message of Christ to those who have not yet heard it, the New Evangelization, initiated by Pope John Paul II, is a fresh vision of preaching the Gospel for the third millennium.
