Adult Faith Formation Program at St. Joseph the Worker Shrine
Twice per year (Spring and Fall) St. Joseph the Worker Shrine in Lowell is featuring Adult Faith Formation classes conducted on 7 successive Wednesdays by Fr. Gene Tremblay OMI, S.T.L.
The Fall session will open on Wednesday October 4th and will continue through October 11,18,25 and November 1,8, 15. This year, our topic will be a doctrinal one: Christology. Part I, this Fall, will consider the distinction between the “Jesus of History” and the “Christ of Faith” with the New Testament as our sourcebook. Fittingly we will conclude just before the Holydays with a consideration of the narratives of Jesus’ birth in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke.

One way to think of obedience is in terms of “listening”; in fact, “to hear” is at the root of the word obey. What is more, repentance, one of the themes of this week’s readings, could be seen as a matter of obedience, of listening to – and doing – the ways of the Lord and the voice of the church.
Where do you do obedient listening? How do you act on it?
What sacrifices do you make for the good of your Christian community? How can you connect them to the Paschal Mystery in which Christ “emptied himself”?
What is your definition of humility? How do you practice humility?
