Join us as we prepare for another year of formational ministries on August 25 for Fall Faith Formation Day to be held at St. Joseph Catholic School in Madison, MS. The theme of this year’s day is “One. Holy. Catholic. Apostolic!” We will address all areas of faith formation in the two break out sessions during the day. Topics covered will include: Family Catechesis, Adult Faith Formation, RCIA, Youth Ministry, Elementary Catechesis, Confirmation, Self-Care, and Protection of Children. Our first session begins at 10 am and will end at 3 pm. Lunch is provided.
Our two keynote speakers who will book end the day are HOSFFMAN OSPINO, Phd- Associate Professor of Hispanic Ministry and religious education at Boston College, School of Theology and Ministry and ROBERT FEDUCCIA- A keynote speaker; retreat leader and recognized expert in the New Evangelization. Robert is also a native of Mississippi and has done many retreats, trainings and youth activities in the Diocese. Both of these speakers will bring their passion for unity as well as their desire to build community. It is so important that all formative ministries are equipped to meet the challenges and celebrate the gifts of our diverse communities. We are at a pivotal time in the Church. Pope Francis reminds us, “We cannot be Christians part-time. If Christ is at the center of our lives, he is present in all that we do.” Let us take this opportunity to join together renewing our commitment to make Christ present in all that we do.
