Living Your Faith

maryFaith is a journey that starts with God's call to each one of us. We experience God in the every day activities of our lives as we live out our Baptismal call to be priest, prophet and king (Catechism of the Catholic Church{CCC}, paragraphs 783-786).

The primary source of learning about our faith is the Mass, the Source and Summit of Catholic Christian Life. Our faith is nurtured and grows in the community of believers (CCC, p. 1253).

During the Year of Faith, Liturgy and Faith Formation Ministries collaborated to bring you teaching about the Mass. Four articles were printed in the bulletin and focused on in the homilies by our priests celebrating Mass. Copies of these articles can be found below. Also included is an article which provides the scriptural basis for the prayers in the Mass, reminding us that the observation that Catholics do not use the bible or scripture is unfounded. Source: compiled by Felix Just, S.J., Ph.D.

There are a number of opportunities to learn about your faith here at Espiritu Santo Catholic Church. We have Scripture Study, talks by visiting priests and others (check your bulletin for scheduling of events), and Opening Up the Catechism with associate pastor Father Frank Lubowa.

Opening Up the Catechism meets weekly on Tuesday evenings. Each week Father Frank addresses a different topic from the Catechism. Using the Bible and Church Documents, Father Frank answers questions about faith and helps those who attend to gain understanding about their faith and how to live as a Catholic Christian. Check the bulletin for times and schedule changes.

There are also opportunities to complete your sacraments of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation) in the RCIA program. Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is for those who have not been baptized or baptized as Catholic or in another Christian Faith but need to be prepared to receive the sacraments. Those who have received baptism and Eucharist in the Catholic Church but who have not yet received Confirmation have a separate program which is based on each individual's needs.

If you have been away from the Church or just want to know more about your faith we have opportunities for you to nurture and deepen your faith. If you have questions please call 221613cef11623201116cefd1414171113ce0f22cee5e0e5dce5e0e4dce6e2e5e5ce AjmbyNWYWMQbv0oUNciaJZwuPrkOu caesar This page part is protected against spam bots and web crawlers.
