Growing Deeper Together:
Tuesday Adult Faith Formation

Bishop Barron's The Mass

Tuesdays, April 9-May 14, 6:30-7:30 pm

Good Samaritan Hall

We say that the Mass is the “source and summit” of our faith. Bishop Robert Barron explores why in this six-part series on The Mass. Come and grow in your understanding of what is really happening at each celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and let your own participation at Mass be renewed.

Genesis to Jesus

Tuesdays, June 4-18 & July 9-30, 12-1 pm -OR- 6:30-7:30 pm Rooms 104-106

Do you ever feel like you don’t really understand the Old Testament or how the story of the Bible fits together? In the video series Genesis to Jesus, host Matthew Leonard considers the principle figures of the Old Testament (Adam, Noah, Abraham, Moses, and David) and how they all point the way to Jesus and his Church.
