It is so important for parents to ensure that their children receive a good education. An education that is academically strong and for us Catholics, one that is faith-based and loyal to the deposit of faith by Jesus Christ. In this, though, it is often forgotten that all adults should continue to learn their faith through study of Church teaching and Sacred Scripture, and the prayerful application of it through meditation.
There are more resources available to us these days than ever before. Many websites support this ongoing education by answering submitted questions, providing reading and audio materials, films, televison programmes, podcasts, blogs, radio shows and more. For some of these click to our links page at the bottom right of this page.
It is imperative that families talk and learn about the faith together and not leave this education to the schools; otherwise we will have many adults walking around with only a very basic knowledge of their faith.
Below, you will find some information on recent programs that the parish is running, our library and cd display, and some links to resources for faith formation. Please avail yourself of these resources and grow more in your faith. We all can do that.
Priest, Prophet, King
A DEEP, BIBILICAL LOOK AT JESUS CHRIST
The better we understand Jesus, the better we understand ourselves. But who was Jesus, this itinerant preacher whom many called the Messiah?
In Priest, Prophet, King, you’ll discover Jesus as the Anointed One–the ultimate priest, prophet, and king foreshadowed throughout the Hebrew Scriptures. Using biblical insights and engaging stories, Bishop Barron affirms that we see Jesus most clearly through the lens of the Old Testament.
Through this deeply biblical program, you will better understand Jesus, become more familiar with Scripture, and realize your own priestly, prophetic, and kingly mission, received when you are baptized “into Christ.”
Presented by Bishop Robert Barron, Word on Fire Catholic Ministries. For more information, see the Priest, Prophet, King website.
Thank you to everyone who joined us deepening our knowledge of and love for Jesus as priest of priests, prophet of prophets and king of kings. Stay tuned for the next program on offer.
Men’s Scripture Group
Currently, a men’s group meets for about 1.5 hours each week to study the upcoming readings, explore scripture and to come to understand how we might live out our faith.
