Ongoing Faith Formation

In July 2011 members of the Franciscan Church of the Assumption participated in a parish survey for Faith Formation. Several topics of interest were identified, including Church History, Devotion to Mary and the Saints, Prayer/Methods of Prayer, Liturgy and Sacraments, End-of-Life Moral Issues, General Overview of Doctrine, Catholic Social Teaching, and Marriage & Family Life Issues. One response to the survey results was through a series of three talks on End-of-Life Issues (Moral Decisions and the End of Life; Spiritual Care and the End of Life: Listening to the Story; and Welcome, Sister Death: A Franciscan Approach to Death and Dying) co-sponsored with The Franciscan Place at Carousel Center and funded through a McDevitt Family Life Grant. The series was well received. We look forward to continuing to provide opportunities that will help with the spiritual growth of each participant.
