Adult Spiritual Growth
Gesu Parish, with the assistance of the Adult Spiritual Growth Committee, provides opportunities for enriching all faith dimensions of an adult life. Experiences that promote a deeper appreciation and understanding of the Catholic faith include, but are not limited to: Bible studies, book club, intergenerational programs, retreats, speakers and workshops.
Gesu provides opportunities for exploring both Old and New Testament Scriptures throughout the year. Fr. Michael Vincent, S.J. facilitates an ongoing study of The Gospel of Mark, meeting every other Tuesday morning. This will continue through May. The Saturday Bible Study is currently exploring “Introduction to the Bible.” Sessions are held in the Madonna Della Strada Pastoral Center. There is a cost for study materials. Please join these explorations into Scripture. To view the 2019 schedule of Saturday studies, click here >
Gesu Book Club meets monthly to discuss various Catholic works of literature and share fellowship. Watch the bulletin or eNews for more information.
Intergenerational Programs (GIG)
Intergenerational events take place on Sunday mornings from 10:00-11:15 am about four times this year. These programs are open to anyone in the parish and will take place of the classroom PSR session on that day. They will involve a diversity of innovative activities and catechetical topics for the whole family and are designed to engage multi-generational levels within the family in order to better hand on our faith stories so that, together, we will grow in faith! We look forward to having you join us for these events. For more information, email Mary von Carlowitz at email@example.com.
These help parishioners to develop a deeper spiritual connection with God and one another. Retreats include the Moms’ Retreat and the Men’s Retreat. Email Marcia Leous at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
