Adult Continuing Education
‘Tis the season for New Year’s Resolutions! So here is an opportunity to improve your faith knowledge and deepen your relationship with Jesus: at-home scripture study. In the Church’s formation kiosk, you will find study books on various scripture topics. Choose one that interests you, select a daily at-home time to read, reflect, and pray. Some topics are appropriate for Lent but can be studied at any time. Please do not write in the book, but if you would like to record your reflections, which is highly recommended, please use a notebook. When you are finished, return the book to the kiosk for
another to use. Also, if you enjoyed a particular study, recommend it to your family and friends. As faith knowledge increases, and you discover other topics you would like to study, please let me know.
