Adult Faith Formation: We never stop Learning!

 

Our faith is an on-going journey with the destination of SALVATION. Seton Parish is committed to providing opportunities to learn. The following is a list of opportunities that have previously been offered: (They are in no particular order)

The Bible Timeline, Quick Journey through the Bible, Acts of the Apostles, Matthew, Revelation, Catholicism, Evangelization, Priest, Prophet and King, The Mass, and The 7 deadly Sins

Over the past few years we have offered 7 Living Christ Retreats. These parishioner facilitated retreats were for adults seeking a deeper relationship with Jesus. Over 200 hundred members of the parish have been able to attend and have witnessed to its success.

* Following is the link to Ohio Dominican College which has been holding a series of talks and presentations about the Second Vatican Council.  
* The office of Religious Education and Catechesis recommends that Catholics read both Lumen Gentium and Dei Verbum during the year of faith.  Both of these documents were mentioned during our session.
* Another website with good information is:  Voice of the Church
