Adult Formation opportunities—

“Acts--Spread of the Kingdom”

Beginning Thursday, May 2 (at noon and 7:00 p.m.) and for

twenty weeks, our Bible Study will be “Acts--Spread of the

Kingdom”. The Acts of the Apostles covers about a thirty-year

period following the resurrection of Jesus when the early

Christians “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6) by

spreading the Good News. The lessons learned are as timeless

as the faith we live, the struggles just as real in the 21st century

church.

The series consists of DVD presentations by Jeff Cavins and

Sarah Christmyer from Ascension Press, reading Acts and

reflecting on the material. Please make plans to study with us.

 

Please make your reservation by calling Chris at 561-3580. We need to know an approximate number to prepare materials

ONLINE EDUCATION

To get a list of course offerings during any cycle check Dayton's website at vlc.udayton.edu. Go to course schedule and then click on next Cycle. If you plan on taking any courses during this Cycle, it would be good to register now becuase sometimes classes get filled and they close the sessions.

Deacon Steve Escalera will be taking over the Dayton program in 2017. Any questions can be referred to him at sescalera@dioceseofpueblo.org.

 

2019 Middle & High School Ministry

 

Confirmation Process for those who have finished one year

of the program begins Sunday, October 7 with orientation at

HOLY FAMILY, 2825 Lakeview.

 

Please keep in mind that formation does not end with the

reception of a sacrament such as Eucharist or Confirmation.

Nor is formation for a sacrament confined to “classes” as

the formal learning, but extends to Mass attendance and life

in the parish (informal learning). All three components are

important.

Look for more adult formation offerings coming soon.
