Coming for Lent! Thursdays, February 15 - April 12, 2018
Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of eight weeks, you will discover how to place yourself in the presence of God. Following the wisdom of the saints and the Tradition of the Church, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer, and how to make prayer an integral part of your daily life. Oremus includes eight video presentations by Fr. Mark Toups, lively small-group discussions, and inspiring readings and reflections for each day.
The program begins Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 PM in the church and continues on Thursday evenings through April 12. There is a student workbook, so advanced registration is necessary. The cost is $15 per individual/couple, but the fee is waived for those willing to serve as small-group facilitators. Registration deadline is Monday, February 5.
Video of the Month: Training vs. Working Out
[Time: 4:56] - Inspired by the diligence of professional athletes and St. Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians, Fr. Mike Schmitz encourages us to approach our prayer life—and life in general—with a goal and sense of purpose. Getting physically in shape requires more than just a casual workout, and getting spiritually in shape requires more than going through the motions of our religion.
How about a New Year’s Resolution to firm up your faith?
Here’s an exciting faith formation opportunity: Formed.org. Formed® is a web site that can best be described as "Netflix for Catholics." It provides a comprehensive offering of high quality movies, short videos, audio books, and seminars from well-known Catholic teachers and presenters who will help you grow and develop your faith. Formed® is available via your computer, tablet, or mobile phone, so you can watch and listen no matter where you are – any time, any place. It’s the Catholic faith on demand. There is a free 7-day trial and if you continue, the cost is $9.99 per month, which is less than many gym memberships. Give it a try!
