Religious Education isn’t
just for kids any more!
Dear Family of St.
Over the past seven
years, Generations of Faith, our
parish religious education program, has covered such topics as
The Sacraments, The Liturgical Year, The Creed, Social Justice, The
Saints, Prayer, Morality, and The Mass.
During this time, many have asked, “What about the Bible?” We
listened. This year, our topic for the seven sessions starting this
October and going through April of next year, will be
What a better place
to look for the answers to life’s questions than in the book
inspired by the God. Our first session in October will be an
introduction to the topic and will be presented by the Faith
Formation Team. From November through April, we are pleased to have
Mr. Tim Reed, Co-chair of the Theology Department of Bishop
Feehan High School in Attleboro, walk us through several books from
the Old as well as the New Testament.
We believe that
this is a topic which is relevant to parishioners of all ages. If
you have not attended Generations of Faith in the past, this would
be the year to do so. Whether you are 4 or 94, Generations of Faith
is for you. Over the last seven years, our focus has changed from
children-only to a life-long faith formation for all ages and
generations. Through a shared meal and large group presentations
and discussion, we look to build a greater sense of community within
our parish family.
previously, GOF meets once a month for seven months from October to
April (additional sessions for First Communion and Confirmation
preparation). You have the option of attending a session on
either Saturday evening after Mass or Wednesday evening at 6:00
p.m. Both sessions include a small meal at a minimal cost of $3 for
adults and $2 for children four to thirteen. If you should choose
not to participate in the meal, we ask that you let us know in
advance. You are still welcome to attend the presentation and

devoted themselves to the teaching of the apostles and to the
communal life, to the breaking of the bread and to the prayers.”

We ask that you offer prayers for
