Being a Catholic determines that we need ongoing formation as members of the Body of Christ. Formation is necessary as adults to deepen our knowledge and understanding of our faith in order bring the Gospel to those around us, our children, family, friends, co-workers and those we meet on the street.
We are offering the Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer study during Lent. Sessions will be held every Sunday evening, beginning March 5, 7:00-8:30pm in the Parish Hall.
Oremus teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of eight weeks you will discover how to place yourself in the presence of God. Following the wisdom of the saints and the Tradition of the Church, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer, and how to make prayer an integral part of your daily life.
Oremus includes video presentations by Fr. Mark Toups, small group discussions, and inspiring readings and reflections for each day.
Our parish has subscribed to an all new evangelization and formation program called Formed. This online program allows individuals to create personal accounts and access a multitude of bible studies, podcast, ebooks, and even movies. Parishioners can take part in these programs offered at the parish throughout the year, study on their own at home, or even host their own small faith group in their home or at the parish.
Log on to formed.org today using our parish code XB4ZTJ to begin exploring all that is available. Once you log in you will be prompted to create your own personal account. This service is paid for by the parish and is free to all parishioners.
