Adult Studies for Men and Women Coming in September
FRIDAY MORNINGS 10-11:30 am. 8 classes starting on September 22, 2023
Forgiven: This study is for people interested in further developing their awareness of our Catholic faith. It is both appropriate for people who receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation regularly as well as for those that have been away from it for years. Together we will come to a better understanding of God’s mercy and the need we have for it in our lives. The study will help us all feel drawn in both love and gratitude to encounter God and all the graces He wants to pour out upon us through this sacrament. I highly recommend joining this group if you long to rediscover the goodness and beauty that can be found in reconciliation with God in a way that you will never look at the sacrament the same way again. This study is also recommended to people looking for a safe space to share concerns, possible misconceptions, ask questions, and not a place of judgement, debate or sharing sins. The book we will use is a fantastic, thought provoking, quick and easy read that has had some great feed back. Don’t miss this one!
God is waiting for us to approach Him in the confessional. He waits because of His great love for us, not because he needs us, but because He knows how much we need Him! His is indeed, a merciful love.
If you are interested in joining this 8 week study on Reconciliation it will be held Friday mornings from 10-11:30 am beginning this fall on September 22. Please contact Jeanne at email@example.com to register and for further information.
MONDAY MORNINGS 10-11:30 am. 10 classes starting on September 18, 2023
The Three Things are One: The Holy Trinity is one of the greatest mysteries of our faith. This study is meant to make the difficult theology surrounding the blessed Trinity easier for us to understand. We will be sure to grow in awe as the mystery slowly unfolds during weekly readings and reflections followed by some lively weekly discussions in class. The Catechism tells us that “God himself is an eternal exchange of love, Father, Son and Holy Spirit…” . We will learn to participate in this communion of love and eventually the eternal life that is shared between Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Occasionally, Catholic Art will be briefly analyzed which illustrates the churches teachings of the three Divine Persons. Topics of redemption and glorification as well as the transforming communion we must make as members of His body will all be explored.
In His “Farewell Discourse”, Jesus expressed His longing to His Father over and over what His desire for humanity was and still is, “…that they may all be one; even as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be in us.” John 17:21. If you are interested in joining this 10 week study on the Holy Trinity it will be held Monday mornings from 10-11:30 am beginning this fall on September 18.
