Adult Faith Enrichment


Elements of the Catholic Mass is an online video program designed to help you better appreciate the beauty of the Mass. Featuring experts from the Liturgical Institute, the program consists of short videos, study guides, and resources provided for you by St. Mary’s to use for individual study or in a class at the parish.

 

Tuesdays 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. OR Thursdays 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

You are invited to enter the biblical story of the New Testament beginning with the gospels and working your way through the final book, Revelation. Discover God’s plan of salvation running throughout the story and characters, both familiar and unfamiliar. A wonderful way to begin New Testament studies but also a lovely way to look back over the journey you have already taken.

  • Introductory Session
  • The Good News of Jesus Christ; The Synoptic Tradition
  • The Lukan Writings; The Johannine Tradition
  • The Great Letters of Paul; Captivity, Eschatological, and Pastoral Letters

You will be contacted with the date of the first session, and receive the remaining schedule at that first gathering. Please contact the Faith Formation Office if you have any questions by phone 716-688-0599 or email familyfaith@stmaryswormville.org.

Wednesdays 7:00 – 8:30 pm OR Thursdays 10:00 – 11:30 am

  • Join Deacon Rick Stachura as he presents this 8 week program to learn about and discuss the true presence of Christ in the Eucharist.
  • Program begins September 26th (Wednesday) and September 27th (Thursday)

What is is that is so special about the Eucharist?

Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’s Real Presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and its members.

It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.
