Adult Faith Formation Growing, Offers Barron's Latest Study in 2017
On November 7, 2016, St. Pius X Adult Faith Formation completed an eight-week study entitled Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. Produced by Ascension Press and featuring speaker Jeff Cavins, the program led the study participants through an overview of salvation history beginning with God’s creation and His covenant with Abraham through the Messianic fulfillment of His promise through Jesus Christ and the institution of His Church. The study included a weekly video lecture, personal Bible reading, workbook reflection, small-group discussion, and group prayer.
Each participant received an ingenious Bible timeline, a reference for future Bible study. The workbook provided a personal, 90-day Bible reading plan which many participants have elected to pursue.
Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible was but one component of our ongoing Adult Faith Formation at St. Pius X. As disciples of our Lord Jesus, we acknowledge that He is the infinite God, and the faith is an infinitely deep, continuing journey to salvation. Deacon Jim Kelly, St. Pius X Adult Faith Formation Coordinator, commented, “We never graduate from learning about our faith, as the Holy Spirit prompts us to desire an ever deeper pondering of God’s wonders. Learning about the faith is more than an intellectual endeavor. Our Adult Faith Formation programs are designed to help us with ‘putting on the mind of Christ, trusting in the Father’s love, obeying God’s will, and growing in love for others’ (from Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops).”
Beginning Monday, January 16, 2017, St. Pius X Faith Formation will present the newest study series by Bishop Robert Barron and his Word on Fire ministries, Catholicism: The Pivotal Players.
