Adult Ministry and Formation seeks to fulfill the vision of Holy Family by you asking you to be a disciple in Jesus Christ, a living witness to the Good News!
“God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life. For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life.” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1)
Our response then is to enter into the great Plan of God. We are called to come into this beautiful friendship with God, here on earth and forever in heaven. Adult Formation, in light of God’s goodness and good will, offers opportunities to answer the deepest questions we all have, strengthen faith, encourage conversion of heart and to share that good news of Jesus with others.
Lenten Priest Talk Series
This Lent, as we desire to more fully “repent and believe in the Gospel” (Mark 1:15), join our priests of Holy Family as they discuss our Holy Family Christmas read “The Art of Living: The Cardinal Virtues and the Freedom to Love.” Talks will be held Tuesdays throughout Lent from 6:30 to 7:30 pm at Sacred Heart Church. The talks will last about half an hour, with half an hour of discussion to follow. You do not need to have read the book to attend.
