SYMBOLON II        

BEGINS THURSDAY, JANUARY 19TH at 6:30 pm  IN MONTINI MIDDLE SCHOOL

We continue our study of the Catholic faith using Part II of the Symbolon program. In part I, we walked through the “big picture” of the Catholic Faith using the Creed as our guide. Now in Symbolon: Living the Faith (Sessions 1-10), we turn our attention to how we encounter God in the sacraments and the moral life. Through the sacraments, Christ’s work of salvation is communicated to our lives. Transformed by sacramental grace, we are made capable of living a life worthy of the Gospel in imitation of Jesus Christ.

This is a stand-alone program which means you do not need to participate in Part I. There is no requirement to attend all sessions. Everyone is welcome. It will be a wonderful time to reengage with your faith and other parishioners. Workbooks will be provided for everyone.

We will meet every Thursday at 6:30 PM in the school via the side entrance. The sessions will last for 90 minutes. We will end promptly at 8:00 PM.

Here are the session titles:

Session 1 THE SACRAMENTS: Baptism & Confirmation

Session 3 WALK THROUGH THE MASS: Exploring the Sacred Liturgy

Session 4 PENANCE AND ANOINTING OF THE SICK: God’s Mercy Revealed
