About 6 months ago, most of you completed a parish survey which included an opportunity to highlight the areas that you’d like to see growth/change in our parish. Perhaps unsurprisingly, adult faith formation came out as a strong theme. We all have the responsibility, by virtue of our baptism, to learn and grow as people of faith, but many of us find it difficult to break out of our daily routine.
Our parish has engaged Mr Shane Dwyer, who is the Associate Director of Adult Formation at Evangelisation Brisbane (EB), to come up and give a talk on faith formation. EB is an agency of the Archdiocese which exists to work with, inspire and empower parishes and communities to encounter Jesus and live the joy of the gospel.
Shane will be here at Our Lady of the Rosary church on Saturday 17 July for a two-hour faith formation seminar. This event is open to anyone in the parish who is seeking to deepen their faith and learn about what it means to exercise their three-fold baptismal office of prophet, priest and king. We will begin with 9am Mass and commence the session shortly after 9.30am. Registration will be at the door and we look forward to seeing you there.
