Journey Into The Desert


When people think about a desert many thoughts or images will enter their minds

depending on where they’re at in life. Some may feel dryness, loneliness, or desperation. Some may feel it’s an escape from the daily routine, an adventure or exploration!

 

Biblically a desert experience can be a retreat from life, a time of evaluating or testing your faith, perhaps to get a handle on where you’re at in life right now. Or simply to be with God for a while. 

 

New this fall, we are offering Journey Into The Desert a walk though Catholicism for adults on Wednesday evenings 6:00-7:00 p.m. Bring your ideas, questions and friends. If you are not Catholic and are interested in learning more about the faith - this is the time and place to begin. If you are Catholic but are in need of sacraments - Reconciliation/Confession or Confirmation - this is still the time and place to begin. And if you are a Catholic and would like to hear once again the basic tenets of the faith, this is the place to come. 

All are welcome.

 

Each stand-alone Adult Ed class will run from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Our calendar will follow the Faith Formation calendar so as to offer an easy opportunity for parents to spend some quality time with peers and other parishioners exploring their own faith!

 

Fall Sessions begin Wednesday, September 20

6:00-7:00 p.m. in Church

 

Our fall sessions will include:

 

What is Faith? The Holy Trinity   

Who is Jesus? The Bible

Catholic Prayers and Practices Your Prayer Life

  The Catechism Who Is Jesus to Me?

 

Come for all the sessions or just the several that intrigue you. 

 

∗Adults preparing for Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation or Full Initiation into the church through the RCIA Program will attend all classes as a part of their process. They may contact the office for full details of the program.

Education is not just for children! 


As adults, we continue to grow in faith. In addition to personal devotion, we join other parishioners to grow as a faith community.


During the year, St. Agnes parish offers many options for adult faith enrichment. These include guest speakers and video series on faith-related topics. Past presentations include: Scripture, Catholicism, Human Trafficking, and Total Consecration to Mary. Current and upcoming opportunities can be found on the EVENTS page of this website.


For adults seeking to become members of the Catholic Church, the Rite of Christian Initiation (RCIA) is offered. This involves several sessions introducing you to the Catholic Church and the center of our belief, Jesus Christ. 


Please contact the Parish Office 920-494-2534 for more information.
