Adult education provides a variety of opportunities to grown in your faith, including options for those with busy schedules.
After reviewing the results of a survey parishioners completed a few months ago, the Christian Formation identified specific goals and strategies to ensure that a variety of opportunities are provided that meet the wide range of interests and needs of all members of our church family. Read them all here.
Spring Adult Formation Opportunities
Liturgy of the Hours presentation
What are the Liturgy of the Hours, or the Divine Office as it is also known? It’s the daily prayer of the church that makes every phase of every day holy and gives us an opportunity to speak with Christ throughout our day.
But how does one pray them? How does one get in the habit of morning and evening prayer, or going even further and marking the middle of the day with the Office? And what kind of impact could praying the Divine Office have on our lives?
Please join parishioner Patricia McAdams Sunday, April 15, at 9:45 am in the Chapel for a presentation on the Liturgy of the Hours and find out how it could enrich your spiritual life!
Christian Creed presentation by Dr. Kevin Hart
“What is the Early Christian Creed?” It is not the one we recite at Mass, which dates to 381 AD, nor is it the first version of the Nicene Creed, which was written in 325 AD. It is cited by Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians, and tells us what Paul and the first Christians took to be central to their beliefs. Join Professor Hart for this engaging discussion on Sunday, April 29, at 12 pm. Lunch will be provided.
