If you're looking to register for Religious Education, Sunday School, CCD, Church School, Adult Education, or any of the other terms we've used to describe
building and learning about our faith, then you're on the right page! If you're new to Generations of Faith, though, you may find it helpful to read on...
In her teachings about evangelization and conversion, the Catholic Church promotes a vision of Lifelong Faith Formation for ALL members of the parish community. Here at St. Thérèse, we take that vision seriously, and we have worked hard to create a religious education/formation program that feeds every member of our parish.
As the name implies, Generations of Faith seeks to engage all genrations in parish life by making participation in parish "events" the centerpiece of faith formation. Although Generations of Faith includes explicit monthly gatherings for learning, the gatherings are designed with the understanding that the real learning takes place by active participation in the lived experiences of Church:
Sunday Eucharist and other public prayer
Church feasts and seasons
Sacramental celebrations and Church rituals
Scripture reading and other practices and devotions in the home, and...
Works of justice and mercy.
A Typical Intergenerational Gathering...
Intergenerational gatherings are about once a month, usually on Sundays, 12:15-2:30 pm.
