“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 News from the Pews
and 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.
