Kingdom of Happiness. In a world that offers fleeting pleasures and false promises that only lead us away from true happiness, the need to turn to God’s grace has never been more urgent. Join us for a faithful walk through the Beatitudes, some of the most profound teachings the Bible has to offer. So much more than appealing proverbs, the Beatitudes are the pathway to true happiness charted by Jesus Christ himself! Along the way, we’ll expose the “anti-Beatitudes” for what they really are—false promises that can only lead to misery and death of the soul. Learn how to live the Beatitudes in your everyday life. Come, enter the Kingdom of Happiness.

Why is Mary so important to Catholics, and why have so many people been devoted to her over the centuries? What can we learn about her from Sacred Scripture? This dynamic offering combines in-depth biblical study with insightful questions and answers to common misconceptions about Mary. Daily reflections lead study participants into a deeper love for Our Lady and a clearer understanding of her vital role in Christian living. Close examination of the connections between the Old and New Testaments will inspire a clear understanding of Mary’s life and her unique identity as the Mother of God. There’s no better time than now. Join us!

But I don't know how to Zoom!

No worries!  Help is available.


Concerned about joining a virtual class?  We understand that may be daunting for a first-time "Zoomer" but we are here to help you!


Zoom access can be as simple as clicking on a link from inside an e-mail invitation sent by your facilitator!  Downloading and using the Zoom app for smartphone, tablet or PC can provide additional features, but all you need is a web browser and that if you are using a computer, you have a webcam with a microphone.  If you are using a smartphone, the camera and mic are built in!


If you would like a test-drive of Zoom to see how it works, contact Paula Schmitz, Pastoral Associate for Adult Formation, at (253) 286-0028 or paulas@allsaintsparish.com and set up a practice session!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is pre-ordering my Study Guide required? 

In order to facilitate our program with Zoom, advance registration is required.  If you are not able to register by the December 4th deadline, please call our program coordinator before registering.  Payment rates may differ for late registration depending on study guide costs.

Registration is complete when payment is received in full!


How do I claim my program materials?

Workbooks will be distributed after Mass at All Saints Parish on a designated pick-up weekend after they are received, or by arrangement with your facilitator.


If I can’t complete my home study preparation, should I still participate in class?

Absolutely! While weekly home study preparation enables participants to deepen their small-group sharing experience, we recognize that busy schedules can sometimes get in the way. Your presence among us is always welcome! Small-group sharing, fellowship and community building are all invaluable benefits you won’t want to miss!
