Adult Faith Formation
Adult Faith Formation helps you learn about what your faith teaches. Our Adult Faith Formation program is a resource to help you enrich different areas of your life. Whether you want to learn more about scripture, historical facts or your family and prayer life, we can help and provide online resources for those times when you can't make it to an in-person presentation. A wonderful byproduct of adult faith formation is that it is a great way to build lasting friendships with the people who share your values and grow with you spiritually.
"Awakened and energized by the Spirit, let us strengthen our commitment and intensify our efforts to help the adults in our communities be touched and transformed by the life-giving message of Jesus, to explore its meaning, experience its power, and live in its light as faithful adult disciples today. Let us do our part with creativity and vigor, our hearts aflame with love to empower adults to know and live the message of Jesus. This is the Lord's work. In the power of the Spirit it will not fail but will bear lasting fruit for the life of the world." (USCCB pastoral plan for Adult Faith Formation, Our Hearts were Burning Within Us, 183)
All are invited to an online presentation by Elizabeth Johnson, a distinguished Catholic theologian, who asks how we can understand cosmic redemption in a time of advancing ecological devastation. In this Advent presentation and discussion, she will invite us to consider what might redemption mean in our own time?
Her book, Creation and the Cross: The Mercy of God for a Planet in Peril, lays out the foundations in scripture, the teachings of Jesus, and the early Church for an understanding that emphasizes the love and mercy of God, showing how this approach could help us respond to a planet in peril. It is not necessary to have read her book, although there will be time for questions.
