ONGOING FAITH FORMATION PROGRAM

Come and be nourished!

Starting this fall, October 2018 to September 2019, plan to start a new Adult Ongoing Formation Program focusing on Scripture and Catechesis (foundations of our faith). The program will be conducted by Fr. Joseph who will give the Scripture part and I, Msgr. John giving the Catechesis part. The two parts will run parallel to each other at the same time in two different rooms either in the Church or at the parish center. The program will be once a month one evening for 1 hour 30 minutes. We estimate about 40 meetings (units) and as such I will explore the possibility of issuing a certificate for those who finish the 40 units. One may not change from one program to another during the year. However, after one year, the same course will be given again for new participants.

Catechesis study with me will explore the foundations and roots of our Catholic faith from the time of the apostle using PowerPoint to help learn better. Some of the topics will be: the Church during the apostles, the creeds and how they came to be written, beginnings of the papacy, timeline of the Catholic Church (historical), the Mass and its development. I will be preparing outlines, summaries and notes. Scripture study with Fr. Joseph will first give an introduction to the Bible and then delve the New Testament Books month by month. We will give more details.

Stay Tuned.
