As you know by now, we will be celebrating a Year of Faith beginning this October, 2012, through November, 2013. I’m happy to announce that I will be offering an Online Summer Retreat: Preparing for a Year of Faith beginning one week from today on Monday, July 30, 2012 (on the eve of the Feast of St. Ignatius of Loyola!). The online retreat will take place right here on Catechist’s Journey.
The retreat is free and there is no need to register for it….just visit my blog each day beginning July 30 through August 24. During that time, you are invited to take a few minutes each day at your convenience to “gather” here on my blog as we seek to encounter Christ and to deepen our understanding of the truths of our faith as given to us in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
We will be drawing from my book A Well-Built Faith devoting a week to each of the 4 pillars of the Catechism: the Creed, Sacraments, Morality, and Prayer. We will be reflecting on the themes and topics of our faith as a means to encountering Christ more deeply. In doing so, we will be preparing for the Year of Faith when we may be participating locally in more formal studies of our faith and the Catechism.
Here is a brief video introducing the online summer retreat: Preparing for a Year of Faith.
