RELIGIOUS EDUCATION: ADULTS

“It is not that I have already taken hold of it

or have already attained perfect maturity,

but I continue my pursuit in hope that I may possess it…

the prize of God’s upward calling, in Christ Jesus.”

 

— Philippians 3:12, 14

 

 

Ongoing religious education is part of being a disciple of Jesus Christ. For this reason, the Church believes that learning more about the Catholic faith is a lifelong endeavor.

 

Each summer, either a seminarian or staff member will teach a class during July, or a three-week book study series will take place. 

 

A book club meets regularly throughout the year. The current work is A Catholic Introduction to the Bible: The Old Testament by John Bergsma and Brant Pitre. Meetings take place approximately the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month, starting at 7:00 p.m. Contact Rebecca Hickman at rehickman@comcast.net or (804) 212-4786 or Linda Sharp at lindasharp14kids@yahoo.com for more information.

The Parish Mission takes place on a Wednesday and Thursday Evening each Spring. This past year's Mission featured Abbot Placid Solari, OSB and was entitled "Benedict by Name and Grace: A Habit for Holy Living."
