Awakening Faith-Reconnecting with Your Catholic Faith Program
Draws Upon Conversation and Sharing Among Catholics
The Returning Catholic Ministry at Our Lady of the Lake Church invites inactive and semi-active Catholics to come together to discuss their faith. The Awakening Faith program is structured to invite conversation and bonding between people. The resulting bonds help them see their connection to their Catholic faith and inspire them to learn and grow in their faith. Dynamics of sharing and conversation in an open and confidential way, with strong welcome and hospitality, reinforce a sense of connection…and re-connection.
“Awakening Faith” sessions begin on Wednesday, January 7, 2015 and run through Wednesday, February 11, 2015. There are four additional weeks that are optional and would run from Wednesday, February 25 to Wednesday, March 18 (no meeting on Ash Wednesday). Sessions will be held in the Parish Center, Cana Room, from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM. Our Lady of the Lake Parish Center is located 650 A. Avenue, Lake Oswego, OR 97034. Click here to sign-up.
