The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah? In Priest, Prophet, King, you’ll discover Jesus as the Anointed One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Father Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
This deeply biblical program, filmed in high-definition video, features an accompanying study guide by notable Catholic writer and apologist, Carl Olson, written under Fr. Barron’s direction. Through this presentation of Priest, Prophet, King, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission.

Our St. Mary Parish School of Religion is now accepting registrations for the coming year. Children in Preschool, Kindergarten, 1st – 8th Grade, and High School, who attend public schools or who are homeschooled without an approved religious education program should attend PSR each Sunday from 10:00 – 11:00 am. All families should register, whether their children are new or returning to the program.
The PSR Registration letter, PSR Registration Form, and Medical Forms can be viewed and printed from the PSR page of the website. Please return the forms to the Parish Rectory (132 South High Street) by 22 August for a discounted tuition rate. PSR Orientation for children and parents will be Sunday, 21 September from 10:00 – 11:00 in the gymnasium of the main school building.
As parents, the solemn vow you made to God at your child’s baptism, to raise him/her in the faith, includes not only their religious education in PSR, but also their growth and participation in worship at holy Mass each weekend and in the sacramental life of the Church. Parents are the primary teachers and witnesses of the faith for their children, but we are here to help you. Please let us know how we can assist you.
Please direct any questions or concerns regarding our PSR program to Mr. McCauley – 740.653.5054
When any parish has many inquirers year after year, it is the fruit of the Holy Spirit as parish members open their hearts to welcome others. Members of a faithfilled and evangelizing parish community take seriously their call to share the holy Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. Evangelization happens in parish families, in the workplace, in gatherings with friends and neighbors, and in daily contacts.
Let us all be attentive to the Spirit as He strengthens each of us who seek to do His will in offering a gentle, humble, and clear welcome to others learn about the Catholic Church and to discern becoming Catholic through the RCIA process.
Please contact Brian McCauley if you know of someone who is interested in learning more about the Catholic Church and entering the RCIA this Fall. There will be two RCIA Information Session Options for Inquirers on Monday, 25 August and Wednesday 27 August at 7:00 in the Spirit Center.
