Adult Faith Formation Presents: I Will Build My Church

God has made us free so that we can know and love him, and ultimately to enter into his divine life. Anyone who claims the name Christian would agree with that statement. But what does any of that have to do with the Church? As the first paragraph in the Catechism of the Catholic Church states, “[God] calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church.” The Church is a place of beauty, healing, and holiness, yet so many see her as an obstacle to their relationship with the Lord.

 

When our Lord told Saint Peter almost two thousand years ago, “I will build my Church,” it was not a statement made in a vacuum. The entirety of salvation history had been leading up to the Messiah, but Creation was also  being prepared for His Church. In this five-part series we will explore the reality of the Church. Through five images (Kingdom, Bride, Body, Rock, and Temple) that we find in Scripture, we will begin to see how Jesus has chosen to make his light visible to the world through His Church and how the world will never be the same.

 

Please join us for this special five-week series presented by Todd Coury, Director of Adult Education. The class will begin on Wednesday, April 4th and go through May 2nd. The presentation will begin at 7:00 p.m. in McDonough Hall, Side B, but you are also welcome to join us for Mass in St. Mary's Chapel at 6:00 p.m., followed by dinner in McDonough Hall at 6:30 p.m. Please register each week for the presentation and / or dinner.
