The Adult Faith Formation Committee is thrilled to invite you to its annual Parish Mission, featuring Fr. Joshua Wagner Monday through Wednesday, October 23-25, 2017 at 7 PM, with Reconciliation offered each night at 8 PM. Fr. Wagner is a well-known priest in the Diocese of Columbus who combines humor and a down-to-earth teaching style to engage, encourage, and inspire his listeners. The theme of this year’s Parish Mission is, Bringing Heaven to Earth, and the stand-alone topics each night are: Mon. Oct. 23: Lost and Found, which discusses how Christ creates purpose in your life, and the 4 Pillars of Prayer. Tues. Oct. 24: The 6 Steps to Forgiveness, and Wed. Oct. 25: Presence Makes Perfect, which examines how to make Christ present in your family, parish, and world. This event is FREE to attend, but any donation to Ascension to help cover expenses is greatly appreciated.

WEEKLY ADULT BIBLE STUDY SUNDAYS, SEPT. 17 THROUGH NOV. 5, 2017:
The Adult Faith Formation Committee presents Ascension Press' 8 week study, Walking Towards Eternity: Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart by Jeff Cavins! Walking Toward Eternity is an inspiring series designed to help participants live their faith more fully. Through daily prayerful meditation with Scripture (lectio divina), you will be drawn into an intimate and life-changing encounter with Christ. Engaging the Struggles of Your Heart, the second series in the Walking Toward Eternity Program, is a challenging study that can open our eyes to obstacles in our Christian walk such as greed, envy, fear and shame. Through prayer, reflection, guidance, and the aid of the Holy Spirit, we begin to engage these difficulties in a positive way as we continue toward our goal of union with Christ.
