DESCRIPTION OF PRESENTATIONS
MINISTRY AS DISCIPLESHIP—Being a disciple is imperative to any type of ministry. Pat Oedy-Murray will give the characteristics of discipleship and how they move one to serve. With some of the Apostles as examples, participants will be encouraged to evaluate their own discipleship in light of these characteristics.
JUSTICE, GOODNESS AND HUMILITY—Rooted in both the Old and New Testaments, Catholic Social Teaching reminds us of our call to be followers of the Risen Lord. Sr. Joan will define the social teachings of the Church that we must practice in order to give witness to what the prophet Micah calls us to: “To act justly, love goodness, and walk humbly with our God.”
RELATIONSHIPS THROUGH THE EYES OF CHRISTIANITY—In this session, Pat Oedy-Murray will share how Christianity perfects the various relationships of our lives: marriage, family, work, friendships…all viewed through the Christian lens.
BUILDING THE CITY OF GOD—Evangelization calls us to deepen our faith, believe in the Gospel, and proclaim it to the world! Nick de la Torre of the Diocesan Office of Evangelization will share ways to grow in our faith and witness that faith to all creation.
WALK THE TALK—Our teens and young adults are a vital part of our Church mission and ministry. Patti will speak on the importance of their involvement in parish life and ways to empower them in their own spiritual growth and in outreach to others.
WHAT WE BELIEVE ABOUT ANGELS—These beings of love and grace are an integral part of Christianity. Sr. Janice and participants will explore the Scripture and Tradition that forms our angelology. If time, the fallen angels will be examined. Please bring your Bibles.
GO OUT TO THE WHOLE WORLD!—St. Luke’s Gospel and Acts are very focused on bringing the Good News to the Gentiles in every corner of the earth. In examining Luke’s writings, Ben will highlight key elements of mission that emerge, such as life in the Holy Spirit, testimony, signs, compassion and joy.
PROTECTING YOUTH WORKSHOP—This is no cost, but we ask that you call Patti to register.
THE LIFE OF RABBI SAUL OF TARSUS—Deacon Norb will present a biography of Saul Paulus, our Christian St. Paul, who was born 12 years after Jesus and never knew him personally but became His greatest witness and messenger.
BRUISED GRACE—Fr. Ted will share reflections on Brian Doyle’s book, Eight Whopping Lies: stories that tell of bruised grace, compassion and courage. “Everything is held together with stories:
THE TEACHINGS OF ST. PAUL OF TARSUS—Discover from Deacon Norb how St. Paul opened up the Christian experience to the wider world…how his theology developed to evangelize the Gentiles and combat pagan mindsets of the time.
WELCOMING(0R NOT) THE IMMIGRANT—How do we as Christians deal with the issue of immigration? What can we do for our brothers and sisters who seek our understanding and support? Fr. Ted will speak about his experiences and the Church’s teachings on welcoming those who come in Christ’s Name.
