The Journey Continues/MYstagogy
Most adult Catholics ended any formal education in the faith following Confirmation, yet the rich teachings and traditions of the Church are continually unfolding. For those desiring to continue their faith formation, The Journey Continues presents the ideal opportunity.
All are welcome to view our monthly topic-oriented videos; but, we extend a special invitation to the neophytes and their family, friends, sponsors and godparents.
For the time being all presentations will be made online.

In In Into His Likeness, Dr. Edward Sri provides an approachable but in-depth exploration of what it means to be a disciple of Christ. At the outset, he emphasizes the importance of every Christian’s developing the desire to be a true disciple of Christ and gives the reader a first glimpse of what the life of a disciple looks like. As the book progresses, he unfolds what a true encounter of love with Christ entails and explores the transforming power of God’s grace. He also offers for consideration “the four habits of a disciple”: prayer, the breaking of bread (the Sacraments), fellowship, and the teaching of the Apostles. The book concludes with a powerful call to fulfill every Christian’s mission of evangelization. Into His Likeness is a down-to-earth and tremendously valuable handbook for anyone wishing to pursue Christ wholeheartedly.

THE JOURNEY CONTINUES
The Journey Continues is for everyone from those who have recently entered the Catholic Church to LONGTIME CATHOLICS. As Catholic Christians, we realize that this life is only a journey to our ultimate home in heaven with God. Last year we began a study of the book Into His Likeness, Be Transformed as a Disciple of Christ by Edward Sri. We were not able to finish our study of the book because of the pandemic. We only covered the first nine chapters of the book. Participants who would like to complete the book with us can find chapters 10-13 here.
We will add one chapter per month. October 2020, we will cover Chapter 10 The Battle for Your Mind presented by parishioner Janis Vaughn.
