Registration is open for two upcoming opportunities to build your faith and grow as a disciple: The 12th annual Diocesan Assembly Oct. 14 and a diocese-wide Adult Faith Formation program launching in November.
For the assembly, this year’s speaker is Joe Miller, executive director of the Magis Center of Reason & Faith. Miller will show the compatibility between faith and science, demonstrating the scientific evidence for God’s existence and showing how ultimate happiness is found only through a personal relationship with God.
According to a recent study, “Many youths and young adults who have left the church point to their belief that there is a disconnect between science and religion.” This year’s assembly will help us evangelize a culture in which many people believe that faith and reason are not compatible.
The assembly is open to everyone and offers an opportunity to come together with others from throughout the Diocese of Duluth for a day of learning, prayer, and support. Please forward the invitation to others whom you think may benefit.
The Adult Faith Formation program begins in November and will consist of five sessions (one Saturday per month from November through March) held in each deanery. It will be based around “Symbolon: The Catholic Faith Explained” and will include guidance by a facilitator, small group discussion, and prayerful reflection.
