“And it happened that while they were conversing and debating, Jesus drew himself near and walked with them” (Luke 24:15)
Many adult Catholics have questions about what the Church teaches and why, and would like to explore their questions openly in a community of faith. The Emmaus story in Luke’s gospel shows us we are not much different from the early Church – they too questioned and had to put effort into understanding how what they believed mattered to the rest of their lives. It is good to meet our faith as intelligent, seeking adults, and especially when we do this with others, Jesus himself is with us.
Saint Cecilia’s Adult Education ministry enables adult Catholics to grow in faith through programs and events that explore what we believe. Our first program is a presentation and discussion series on Sunday mornings in the fall and in Lent, on some aspect of our faith. Watch for more specific information in the bulletins.
The continuation and growth of this ministry will depend on your support. First, we ask for your prayers – that we may speak and act in truth and love to share God’s goodness. Second, we ask for your attendance at the events. And third, of course, we’ll need volunteers! If you are interested in organizing or helping with childcare, hospitality and refreshments, publicity, etc., for one or more of the events, please contact the parish office at 614-878-5353.
