Growth in Faith Committee



Chairperson
Wendy Aitken

 
 

PURPOSE

The Committee seeks to serve the Eucharistic Community of St. Luke through Adult Faith Enrichment, including both spiritual growth and faith education.

We seek to achieve these goals through the various parish groups represented on the Committee, all of whom are dedicated in their different ways to Adult Faith Enrichment. Through their membership on the Committee, these groups exchange information, coordinate their activities, and cooperate in their common mission of Adult Faith Enrichment.

Beyond the ministries and services provided by the groups, the Committee seeks to promote Adult Faith Enrichment by other means such as:

  • Organizing specific parish activities (e.g. retreats, missions, testimonies, spiritual direction, seminars);
  • Publicizing and supporting relevant activities in other communities;
  • Seeking new and effective ways of evangelizing both those who regularly gather to celebrate our weekly Eucharist, and those who do not.

CHARISMATIC PRAYER GROUP

Through the power of the Holy Spirit and in the presence of Jesus among us, in accordance with his promise: “Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them”, we gather to give praise and worship to God with our whole hearts through hymns and prayers. We also read and reflect on passages from Scripture and respond to them as God’s word to us. 18+
