Our Catholic Faith is a series of responses to questions being raised in our local faith community. We hope these responses will help deepen your understanding of our Catholic faith, strengthen your commitment and draw you closer to Jesus himself. (See www.celina-ic.org for additional responses)
We are a Eucharistic community rooted in faith and gifted by God with time, talent and treasure. Liturgy is at the heart of our faith, and our response is love in action. We share the gift of faith through our Catholic elementary school, religious education for children and adults and by reaching out to those who are lonely, hungry or hurt. We invite you to join us in worship and any of our parish ministries. If you have any questions, suggestions or would like more information about our parish family, please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call at 419-586-6648.
Lent 2017 Faith Discussions
Join us for the second phase of our Catholic-Lutheran dialogues which began last Fall. During Lent 2017, St. John Lutherans and IC Catholics will continue to explore and discuss what our two faith communities have in common and how we can dismantle the walls that have separated us for nearly 500 years. Discussions will spring from the book One Hope: Re-Membering the Body of Christ, a collection of essays written collaboratively by three Catholic and three Lutheran scholars and pastoral leaders. The essays explore experiences and activities that both faith communities share and that can help us better communicate with each other and understand and appreciate the richness of both faith traditions.
Discussion groups will meet for five weeks on Thursdays starting on March 9 at IC. To better accommodate work and family schedules, two group sessions are planned for each day, one starting at noon and a second at 6:00 PM. (Both sessions will begin with a light meal for those interested, discussions begin at 12:30 and 6:30 PM.) Meeting places will again alternate between St. John’s and IC. For more information and/or to reserve a book, call Charlie Mescher at 419-586-or via email: email@example.com. More details will be forthcoming soon.
