It can be intimidating to walk through those doors again... but we've been expecting you.
Our Lady of the Lake Parish hopes you accept this as your invitation to rediscover the truth, wonder and mystery of the Catholic faith. As your brothers and sisters in our worldwide Catholic family, we missed you, and our Church is not the same without you.
Regardless of why you left or got out of the habit of going to Mass, you can always come home and return to the practice of the sacraments and the fullness of relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church he founded.
Awaken Your Catholic Faith
To help you transition back to the church, "Awakening Faith" small groups meet once a week for six weeks of conversation and socializing. The conversations are based on spirituality, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, God’s mercy, the Mass, and the Church. The gatherings foster reflection, prayer, and honest sharing in a setting of hospitality and acceptance. The process is simple and inviting. Join us!
Awakening Faith provides six sessions on elements of our Catholic faith, with opportunities for conversation and sharing. The initial sessions help you to explore spirituality, to discover who Jesus is, and to study the Holy Spirit. Relevant topics include finding forgiveness, heightened engagement of the Mass and personal reflections on the Church. Four optional sessions are available concerning ongoing quest for faith and love. Discussions of marriage, divorce, annulment and the use of money are also included.
The next session of Awakening Faith begins
Wednesday, April 19, 2017, 7:00 – 8:30 PM in the Parish Library.
Sessions happen every Wednesday for 10 weeks
(last 4 weeks are optional)
To join Awakening Faith, feel free to join us on Wednesday nights in the Parish Library.
