Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.

1 Corinthians 9:24-27

Once you receive your sacraments, you never stop learning about the Catholic faith. Jesus calls us to constantly draw to him and connect to the vine.

Holy Family offers several courses year-round to help adults continue to learn more about their faith, so they can grow in the faith and remain constant witness to that faith.

Lectio-Evangelization

Times/locations: Thursdays at 7 p.m., Dec. 3, 10, 17; Jan. 7, 14, 21, 28; Feb. 4, 11, 18 / via Zoom.

Facilitator: Deacon Larry Brockman

Join Deacon Larry for the Lectio Evangelization Bible Study on Thursdays at 7 p.m. This study will be done on Thursdays via Zoom. This study features the Lectio Evangelization series by Dr. Mary Healy.

In this 10-part Bible Study, Dr. Healy combines insightful biblical study with Church teaching and practical advice to show how modern Catholics can effectively impact their world for Jesus Christ. She explores topics such as the call of Jesus to evangelize, the power of the Sacraments, the role of charisms for building up the Body of Christ, techniques from St. Paul for reaching a secular culture, and more.

Using the Lectio Divina approach of reading, reflecting, responding, and contemplating, the accompanying workbook presents classic artistry, penetrating questions, and personal reflection to take the teachings to a deeper level.

A limited number of study guides are available (contact Deacon Larry for info on how to get them). It’s also available online. Before the class, view the video series on Formed.org.

Email Deacon Larry for Zoom meeting info. Email him if you would like one of the study guides that will be made available.
