Adult Formation/Scripture and Fellowship

We believe that Faith Formation is a life long learning.  Our parish provides spiritual growth by introducing Mission Speakers, Scripture Studies, adult retreats and reading resources.

Mission Speakers are provided for Lenten Seasons and sometimes during Advent.

Scripture Study is being offered during school year, one in the fall and another in the winter.

What have we learned so far?     

Matthew, Mark and Luke are synoptic Gospels.  The first three books of the New Testament, Matthew, Mark and Luke are called the Synoptic (means "together sight") Gospels because the three of them have a common view.  Including John, together they chronicle the good news of Jesus' life, death and resurrection. Then we moved on to study the Scripture and the Mystery of the Holy Rosary.  This is a 5 week class covering: The Joyful Mysteries, The Mysteries of Light, The Sorrowful Mysteries, and the Glorious Mysteries.

The Gospels have been a hit topic during our fellowship so we added Spirituality of Paul, Acts of the Apostles and this Winter 2019 we are exploring Letters from Prison.

Angels in the Bible by George Smiga and Little Rock Scripture Studay Staff


6 SESSIONS
2nd Week of October- 3rd Week of November 2021


The Bible is full of passages about angels who are sent to accomplish God’s will. Angels speak for God, direct the course of nations, and protect God’s people. They worship God and deliver God’s judgment. In Angels in the Bible, George Smiga examines some of the Bible’s most fascinating passages about angels, exploring their ministry on God’s behalf and drawing insights for our own spiritual lives. Because angels are mediators of God’s presence and action, studying angels is studying God. Commentary, study and reflection questions, prayers, and access to online lectures are included. 6 lessons.  

George M. Smiga, STD, is a nationally known author and lecturer in Scripture and homiletics. A priest of the Diocese of Cleveland, Smiga serves on the faculty of Saint Mary Seminary and Graduate School of Theology. He received his doctorate in biblical theology from the Gregorian University in Rome in 1985 and is the author of Pain and Polemic: Anti-Judaism in the Gospels and The Gospel of John Set Free: Preaching without Anti-Judaism. Smiga writes a monthly column for Living with Christ and contributes regularly to Give Us This Day. His website is buildingontheword.or
