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. Parents should not forget that the faith is learned primarily at the home by the day to day living out of love and learning and growing in faith. 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 and contemplation.
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.
Thank you, Peter, for running the Mystery of Christ series. It was fascinating and very instructional.
Stay tuned for the next faith formation program.
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.
