Generations of Faith 2011-2012

Dear GOF families,

We are excited this year to announce we will be learning/discussing the 7 Pillars of Catholic Spirituality. This may sound familiar as it is from Matthew Kelly’s book “Rediscover Catholicism.” For families that do not have a copy of this book, one will be given to your family in September. Each month we will split into age groups and each group will be discussing the same information from one of the pillars. Then families will have a chance to get together before the evening ends to discuss how we can live out that particular pillar in our every day lives.

The schedule for GOF will be about the same as it was last year. We will begin with Mass at 5:30pm, followed by a potluck meal, reading of the following Sunday’s gospel, breaking into groups, small family discussion, and ending with prayer.

We are looking forward to another year of study and fellowship together!
