"The catechesis of adults...is the principal form of catechesis, because it is addressed to persons who have the greatest responsibilities and the capacity to live the Christian message in its fully developed form.  The catechetical formation of adults is essential for the Church to carry out the commission given the apostles by Christ.  Because of its importance and because all other forms of catechesis of adults must have high priority at all levels of the Church." (National Directory for Catechesis, p. 187)

 

St. Michael the Archangel Parish recognized that our Catholic Faith is a priceless treasure that is worthy of our time and study, as well as a treasure to be shared and passed on to others.  One of our Lord's final commands was "to make disciples" of the entire world (Mt 28: 18-20).  In order to make disciples, we must first be disciples.  This means seeking to know Jesus more deeply as the Way, the Truth, and the Life in our own lives.  Our task as Catholics is to know the faith, to live the faith and to spread the faith.  As the Catechism states, "you cannot live your faith if you do not know it, and you cannot share with others what you do not first make your own."

AWAKENING FAITH

Sometimes important things get away from us–things like faith.  Is this you?  Too busy?  Not been to church in a while?  Children asking questions about faith that you're not sure how to answer?  Looking for an opportunity to explore your faith?

 

Awakening Faith, a no stress, no pressure way to reconnect with your Catholic faith, may be just right for you!

 

This six-session series includes topics such as "Spirituality: What's the Buzz?", "Can I accept God's Mercy?", "Can the Mass Make My Life Meaningful?", and "The Church and Me."  you can learn and ask questions all in a friendly and confidential setting.
