This study is for our desire to be more like Christ and to focus on key obstacles that hinder us from growing spiritually. Scriptures and Catechism contain many answers for daily living if only we will submit ourselves to God’s loving instruction. Weekly lessons use Scripture, a journal and discussion groups to begin making personal changes in your spiritual life and overcome some of the obstacles that keep us from walking in the fullness of Christ in unruly appetites, shame, envy, anger, fear, loneliness, and hopelessness. Journals are part of this offering and the cost is $16.95

 + shipping.

This consists of 20 Sessions


Too often we try to live a faith we don't know or understand. Some of us stumble along with it, going through the motions. Others simply walk away. That's why the time is right for Symbolon: Knowing the Faith, which explains the essentials of the Catholic Faith in a way that will inform our minds and inspire our hearts. Knowing the Catholic Faith is one thing, but what about living it? Symbolon: Living the Faith answers that question by exploring how Jesus gave us the Sacraments, the Mass, and the rich treasures of Church teaching to enliven our faith and bring vibrancy to our Catholic lives. 

Thursday Sessions:

6:30-8:00pm

Continues January 10th

Bring your Journal and Bible

To join our Symbolon journey please email Fr. Pica at: frmichael@stpatrickmerna.org

 A more detailed schedule will be given on Thursday January 10th.
