A Journey to a Renewal of Pentecost
With last Sunday’s celebration of the Baptism of Our Lord, the Church returns to Ordinary Time leading up to the Lenten Season which begins on Ash Wednesday, March 2nd. So, here’s what we have planned to offer during Lent and beyond, as part of our Making Disciples and Disciple-Makers Series.
With the archbishop’s “All Things New” initiative beginning next week, we are looking to go beyond just a Lenten series and provide a “journey” that will take us through the Easter Season and conclude on Pentecost Sunday. The Holy Spirit will be our guide through this 14-week journey. Our in-person sessions will be held on 14 consecutive Mondays from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the Adult Faith Room located in the 1924 Building. For those who cannot attend in person, the videos are available on Formed.org at no charge.
St. Augustine Institute provides us with a video series entitled: “The Wild Goose, Discovering a Deeper Relationship with the Holy Spirit” via Formed.org, their digital Catholic library. The Wild Goose series is truly a work of the Holy Spirit. “Wild Goose” was a term that the ancient Celts had for the Holy Spirit. It is a 14-part series featuring Fr. Dave Pivonka and various interviews. Shot in various locations from Niagara Falls to the California desert, The Wild Goose invites viewers to an encounter, or a renewed encounter, with the Holy Spirit. Here’s the planned schedule:
Feb. 28: God’s Love Poured Out
March 7: Breath of God
March 14: Baptism in the Holy Spirit & Fire
March 21: The Spirit & Our Lady
March 28: Gifts of the Holy Spirit
April 4: The Spirit & the Eucharist
April 11: The Spirit of Adoptions
April 18: The Spirit & The Sacraments
April 25: The Fruits of the Holy Spirit
May 2: The Spirit & the Desert
May 9: The Spirit Convicts
May 16: The Spirit’s Freedom
May 23: The Spirit Gives Witness
May 30: The Spirit Remembers
Please consider joining us for this faith-building series. Understandably, you may not be able to attend all sessions, but it is recommended that you attend at least the first 3 sessions as they form the foundation for the remaining sessions.
