Faith Formation




Embrace Lent!

You heard it right!  Embrace Lent!  This is your time to grow.  As Jon Jorgenson in this video suggests, let’s get rid of some things to make room for the ONE thing!

So toss down those pancakes and let’s get to work.  Keep an eye on this site as we add new links each week to help sustain you in your self-formation this Lent.  As an example, check out the videos page for Bishop Barron's talk on the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist.

And DO have a look at the rest of our videos page, where we've assembled all kinds of resources, including last year's resources on Lent and Easter.

Looking for a way to rejuvenate your prayer this season, try the many versions of Rosary meditations and prayers at the Rosary Centre. A favourite are the bead-by-bead Mysteries meditations available as  Praying the Rosary without distractions.


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?
