SECOND TUESDAYS – NEXT ON FEBRUARY 8

Here’s a message from Fr. Enrique about our upcoming Second Tuesdays presentations:

“One of the responsibilities that I share with all priests, is our duty to teach. We priests teach in many ways, and sometimes we delegate that duty to others (i.e. teachers and catechists) One thing that I have recognized now as a priest is how “little” our people know about their faith. I do not know who to blame for the lack of knowledge of the faith: bishops and priests for not teaching it? Parents for not teaching the faith to their kids? Teachers and catechists for not teaching the faith well? I guess is a combination of many faults and factors. In light of all of this, we have to options: 1. Do nothing different or 2. Offer different opportunities for our people to know more about the faith.

We chose number 2. That is why we created the “Second Tuesdays” parish formation nights where we can learn together about our faith. This semester we will be teaching from Holy Family Parish in McCormick Hall.

  • This second Tuesday (01/11) we will learn about Sacramentals. Do you know why we use Holy Water? Or why we use candles? Do you know what’s a novena or a litany? Do you know what’s a scapular? Come and learn about the different sacramental available to us as Catholics.
  • 02/08 We will learn about why we follow the Sacred Scriptures and the Magisterium of the Catholic Church. Why not just the Bible?
  • 03/08 At the beginning of Lent, let us learn about the wonderful Sacraments of Healing
  • 04/12 Let us learn about prayer. Do you know how to pray? Do you want to learn about different forms of prayer? “Lord teach us how to pray”
  • 05/10 Let us learn about the Saints. Why do we pray for their intercession? Do you know who are my favorite saints?

Please come and learn a little bit more about the faith. Bring your questions so we can discuss about them. Everyone is welcome!!!
Fr. Enrique”

TRY ALPHA!

Alpha is great way to discuss and explore questions like: Why am I here? Is there more to life than this, and other big life questions. Alpha runs in cafés, churches, universities, homes —you name it. No two Alphas look the same, but they generally have three key things in common: food, a talk and good conversation about life, faith and meaning. Some people say it’s been life-changing and it was the highlight of their week! Often many great friendships are formed. The course is a series of sessions exploring the Christian faith, typically run over eleven weeks. Each talk looks at a different question around faith and is designed to create conversation. Alpha is run all around the globe, and everyone is welcome.

We would love to have you come share your views and engage in fellowship with us! Please join us:
