All Parish Faith Formation Event

December 2, 2015

The theme will be the Pope’s declaration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy.

Everyone is invited to an all-parish faith formation event at St. Edward’s Church on December 2nd at 6:30pm. The theme will be the Pope’s declaration of the Jubilee Year of Mercy and we will celebrate (in advance) the Pope’s “Opening of the Jubilee Doors in Rome”. All ages will gather for prayer and then learning about this special worldwide opportunity to make “Church” come alive! Children in grades 1-5 will be amazed by magician and comedian Brian Richards. Middle school students will hear from FamilyFest Ministry’s Pete Larson. Confirmation students will explore “Lives of Mercy: Joy, Jubilee, Justice and Forgiveness in the Insta-Age” with Patrick Smalley. Adults will hear from Fr. Mike Byron, who will speak about what the Year of Mercy IS and what it might mean for St. Edward’s parish as well as for individuals.

These special learning activities and presentations will provide ample foundation to continue the conversation with family and friends after this event; as well as truly participate in this Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy with Pope Francis and the world!
