Did Jesus Really Rise from the Dead – Week Three

Did Jesus Die Graphic

Praise God who raised Jesus from the dead! What happened in the life of Jesus can happen in our lives as well through His grace!

Week Three of our study examines Chapter 4 & 5 of the book. It begins to unpack and refute some of the false theories that attack the bodily resurrection of Jesus.

Here is the handout for the Study: Week Three

Easter Outreach

Easter Outreach

Please join us on Saturday, April 13th from Noon to 2pm as we visit a local shopping center to invite the community to join us for liturgies of Holy Week and Easter. So many people are looking for a place to worship and we want to put St. Raymond in their mind as an option.

We will gather at St. Raymond at 11:45am to provide some “basic training” and then carpool to the shopping center. It is a great way to share Easter Joy and our love for St. Raymond.

If you plan to join us, please let Richara know so we plan accordingly.
