Summer Faith Series (11am and 7pm in Church)

Aug. 2Having a Sense of God: God is always present, but we are not always present to God.  Where does that lead? Doubting God’s realness; Not bothering going to church; missing out on awe and a full life.  Bring your H.S./College students along for a look at the blocks to sensing God’s presence (which negatively impact psychological development and true happiness) and practice the remedies found in the rich tradition of the Church which help us to find God in our day.

Aug. 9 My Three, My All:  Trinitarian prayer will be discussed in this offering.  To Whom do you direct your prayer? The Father? The Son? The Holy Spirit? How does the Church pray to God at Mass? What are the ways in which we pray to the Holy Trinity? Explore the opportunity to reflect on this important dimension of our life of communication and communing with God.

Aug. 16 – Meditation – Looking inward & upward:  What are the various ways we can meditate?  Looking at meditation and the Mass as well as techniques for approaching Scripture, this time will include a chance to try out the different methods we discuss and find out more about what should be happening in the different types of meditation, so that we can focus and be open to God directing us and inspiring us.

Aug. 23 – Intercessory Prayer Looking outward & upward: So much of our prayer life is the prayer of petition.  Join us to look at the power of intercessory prayer and our call to be present to God and others through this gift of prayer.  We will also have time to pray using this prayer.
