Bible Study and Faith Formation:

At particular times of the year, the parish offers courses in Bible study and Faith Formation. These include:

Lectio: Evangelisation and the Acts of the Apostles

Presenter: Dr Mary Healy

Duration: 10 weeks

 Dr. Mary Healy combines insightful biblical study with Church teaching and practical advice to show how modern Catholics can effectively impact their world for Jesus Christ. She explores topics such as the call of Jesus to evangelize, the power of the Sacraments, the role of charisms for building up the Body of Christ, techniques from St. Paul for reaching a secular culture, and more.

Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible

Presenter: Jeff Cavins

Duration: 8 sessions

In eight videos, Jeff Cavins presents the story of salvation history from Creation and the Fall through the coming of Christ and the establishment of the Church.

“I learned through this course that we are called to be disciples of Jesus not just fans. The story of the Bible is relevant and connected to the story of Jesus and our salvation.”

Lectio Divina: Finding Intimacy With God.

Presenter: Dr Tim Gray

Duration: 6 weeks

Come and join other parishioners as we learn from Dr Tim Gray, as featured on the formed.org website, the practice of reading  Sacred Scripture for prayer and reflection.

Small Groups:

Faith Circles occur regularly throughout the year in our parish. Faith Circles are faith sharing small groups aimed at bringing people together to share their lives and the ways in which Jesus is working in them through his Holy Spirit. 

Lenten and Advent Groups: During Lent and Advent, small groups meet, to prayerfully  reflect on the scriptures as they prepare for Easter and Christmas. They meet weekly throughout  Lent and Advent using the Diocesan Lenten and Advent booklets to read and reflect on scripture together to better prepare for Easter and Christmas.

If you would like to join one of the faith sharing small groups please contact Donna Ransom donna.ransom@dow.org.au or phone the Parish Office on (02) 9603 7373
