Adult Faith & Formation Ministry
The Faith and Formation team have taken as our theme ‘Journey in Faith’ in 2024.
Each of us are in a different place on our journey to God. Christ, however, wants us to travel in communion with each other as members of his Body here on earth, the Church. With that in mind, we have three Alpha streams to our Ministry:
•Know your Faith
Alpha: This week sees the commencement of three Alpha programs across our community, with an astonishing 55 participants registered! What a great response to the invitation to know Jesus personally! Please keep all participants and team members in your prayers as we move through this 8-week program. For more information, go to Linktree
Know your Faith: This is a regular weekly session Thursdays 5-6pm in the PC. Content is guided by Fr Francis, with our current program being the (re)introduction to basic tenets of the Catholic faith using the text ‘At Home with God’s People’. Topics include Scripture, the Church, the Papacy, Authority and Wisdom, Mary and the Saints, the Eucharist, the Mass, Sin and Forgiveness and Ministry and Mission among other subjects. There is no need to register, just come along, but pre-reading is recommended to make best use of time each week. We have the book available for loan – just ask for it at the Parish Office or email [email protected] for more information.
Faith Circles: Faith Circles are small groups gathering for particular purpose, examples include the Women’s Faith and Friendship group and current Bible Study groups. John Manion at Kawana, Carol Devcich at Landsborough, Julie Borger at Maleny and Caroline Kettle at Caloundra are all running small group Scripture studies that are open to all. You may be keen to run your own small group – please let us know how we can support you.
Our vision is that each member of our community is connected to one or more Faith Circles as we journey in faith.
