Faith Formation




Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Struggling with those resolutions now that the new year is here?  For a Catholic perspective, try this 7-minute video with Fr. Mike.
Ever start the new year training with a running group?  We don't start training for a marathon by running for 6 hours.  New runners start this journey minute-by-minute.  If you long for a deeper connection with God this year, try listening to Fr. Mark Mary below as he describes his suggestion for a 4-Step Spiritual Training Plan.
If you missed our previous video selections, visit the Faith Formation Videos page.
If you're thinking of volunteering as a catechist, starting a small group study in your parish, or just need some ideas, contact your parish religious education coordinator or the diocesan Office of Faith Formation.  We're here to help! 
Have you considered these new studies for your adult faith formation group?
Metanoia is a beautiful walk through the Holy Land to encounter Christ and his compelling invitation to us.  Produced by the same group as The Wild Goose is Loose, these videos and accompanying guides are offered freely online by donation.  The first episode will be released February 3 with the 10 sessions timed to conclude at Easter.
The 99 includes both a three 90-minute session "Experience" and a 6 theme series "Master Class".  Purchase from Loaves & Fishes or directly from Ascension Press (shipping from U.S. required). Nelson Diocese parishes may contact the Pastoral Centre to borrow from the library.
Have you found a great study you would like to share with others in our diocese?
