*By administrative decision, Adult Faith programs run September through April only.

 

Catechesis (from the Greek word katēkhēsis meaning “instruction by word of mouth”) is the act of handing on the Word of God so as to inform the faith community about the teachings of Christ.  It is a lifelong process of forming people into witnesses to Christ and opening their hearts to the spiritual transformation given by the Holy Spirit.   As adults, we all seek to deepen our love of Christ.  To that end, programs are offered from September through May in the form of mini-retreats and small-group programs with an emphasis on understanding how Sacred Scripture applies to living our Christian faith in today's world.  Information about upcoming programs can be found here and in our regular communications such as the weekly bulletin and e-news or by contacting Danette at dmorris@staugustineparish.org

Drop-in Series

A weekly drop-in series on Tuesday mornings (October through April) offers everyone, no matter where you are spiritually, the opportunity to gather in community to discuss and share your faith experiences.  Each session includes video content, group prayer, reflection and shared discussion.  Each week's topic stands on its own so come once in a while or every week - the door is open. We gather in rooms 201/203 on the second floor of the parish center, coffee is provided.

 

Scripture Study

Studying the Word of God is one of the best ways to grow in relationship with Him.  Most studies are 7-10 weeks long and held on Wednesday mornings.  New offerings coming in October 2024.

Mini-retreats

A valuable part of the Adult Faith Programs, the monthly mini-retreats allow participants to learn from each other's faith experiences and to share their own.  Held in the parish center one Thursday a month from 12:30-3:30 pm, each retreat focuses on a specific, seasonal theme and includes prayer, private reflection, video segments and group discussion.  There is no fee.

The next mini-retreat will be held in October 2024.
