Adult Formation

 

Opportunities in Fall 2017

 

First Corinthians Adult Formation
 
Sin, immorality, war, Christians arguing among themselves are not just this week's headlines.  Join us as we study the first letter of St. Paul to the City of Corinth.  The early days of the Church were full of many of the same issues we struggle with today.  St. Paul taught the Corinthians about the nature of grace and the Church as the body of Christ.  He introduced Christians to the most powerful gift of all - the Eucharist - which along with Christian virtue, leads to a life of joy!
 
Meeting the first and third Thursdays of most months, we are hosting and eleven part Ascension Presents DVD series - First Corinthians: The Church and the Christian Community featuring Tim Gray.  Our first evening is Thursday, October 5th, 6:30 - 8:00 pm in the Youth Center.  Cost is $25 per workbook.  Questions?  Please contact Lisa Jachimiec in the Christian Formation Office at: 262-679-0880 or email: lisa.jachimiec@stleonards.org.  Please reserve your spot by September 30th so materials can be ready for you.  St. Leonard catechists can attend at no charge to them - and - clock hours will be available for this series.

Bible Study: The Deuterocanonical Books

Wednesday Mornings ~ 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.   Starts Wednesday September 27, 2017 ~ Cost $5.00 to cover materials. The deuterocanonical books, a term used since the 16th century by the Catholic Church, are the books and passages of the Christian Old Testament that are not part of the Hebrew Bible. These books are considered canonical (that is, authoritative parts of the Bible) by Catholics, Eastern Orthodox, Oriental Orthodox, and the Church of the East. However, they are considered non-canonical by most Protestants and therefore not found in most Protestant Bibles. This Bible study will be an overview of these seven books of the Bible (Tobit, Judith, Wisdom, Sirach also called Ecclesiasticus, Baruch, and 1 & 2 Maccabees) with the additions to Esther and Daniel plus the history associated with their exclusion from most Protestant Bibles.

*Be sure you have a Catholic Bible that includes these books and bring to each session. For questions or to obtain a schedule, contact Bridget in the Parish Office at 262-679-1773, or at klawitterb@archmil.org.
