- VIRTUS Certification!
All adults and teens (18 and older) who volunteer with Faith Formation need to be VIRTUS certified before classes begin. All adult volunteers need to complete an initial online Protecting God's Children VIRTUS Training, apply for a background check and sign a Code of Conduct. Please contact Safe Environment Coordinator Susie Irlbeck at [email protected] or 651-429-7937 to get started (new volunteers) or to update your certification (returning volunteers) and with questions about VIRTUS certification. The virtus website is www.virtusonline.org.
- Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA)
RCIA is a very special opportunity for adults who wish to explore membership in the Roman Catholic faith or for those Catholics who wish to receive sacraments which were not received at traditional ages. This journey also is an excellent opportunity to participate in a wonderful overview of the catholic faith and is open to all parishioners. We start this journey in late fall and continue through Easter when all will receive the sacraments at the Easter Vigil. So if you are in need of baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation preparation as an adult, we would love to see you!
- Book & Bible Study Groups
Beginning January 18, we will begin a 4-week Bible study entitled Sermon on the Mount. This Little Rock Scripture Study focuses on the Beatitudes. Jesus' call to profound discipleship in the Sermon on the Mount is too often dismissed as special instructions for only the holiest and most exceptional Christians. In The Sermon on the Mount, Clifford Yeary challenges us to hear the sermon once again as Christ intended it, as our call to follow him whose life illustrated its every ideal. Yeary helps us to hear the Sermon on the Mount as a message for each of us, a challenge that is our constant call to renewal.
Sessions start the week of January 18 and continue for 4 weeks.
