Current Study:
SSJ is pleased to present our next study: Crossing the Goal. Crossing the goal is a Catholic non-profit ministry whose mission is to call, equip and empower men to become and stay spiritually fit in their faith through the utilization of Spiritual Fitness Workouts.
What is a Spiritual Fitness Workout?
Spiritual Fitness Workouts are designed for Catholic men to help them grow spiritually and strengthen their faith. Spiritual Fitness Workouts can be used by either groups or individuals on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. The content for these workouts is derived from three primary sources: the Scriptures, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and episodes of the “Crossing the Goal” TV show, which airs weekly on EWTN.
Why the need for Spiritual Fitness Workouts?
Pope St. John Paul II said, “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think the wide circle of the American Society or the wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-church, between the Gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God’s Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously…”

Current Study:

Seek Wisdom and Increase Your Sense of Peace

Scripture and the Tradition of the Catholic Church provide an abundance of wisdom, though it can often be challenging to apply it to our lives. In this eight-part study, Jeff Cavins and Thomas Smith examine biblical wisdom as it relates to daily life. Drawing on the wisdom literature of the Bible—Proverbs, Wisdom, Sirach, and Ecclesiastes—Wisdom: God’s Vision for Life will teach you how to actively seek sound guidance and increase your sense of peace in navigating life.

In everything from friendships to finances, from making decisions to attaining peace of mind, Scripture offers a vision for happiness and well-being. With this program, you will learn how to gather, gain, and grow in wisdom, and you will experience the joy it brings to your life.
