Adult Faith Formation

Adult faith formation allows us to actively learn and live Jesus’ call. This includes bible study groups, but so much more…it involves creating opportunities to meet people where they are in their relationship with Christ so we can grow as disciples. The US Catholic Bishops remind us: God's call to holiness, our faith and life as adult disciples are grounded in developing a personal relationship with Jesus and we learn and live our faith as active members of the Church. Prayerfully consider growing your relationship with Jesus. For more information contact Kym Leibham - leibhamk@sheboygannorthparishes.org
Safeguarding Coordinator is Lori Woelfel - woelfell@sheboygannorthparishes.org

Book Recommendation
33 Days to Eucharistic Glory by Matthew Kelly is the first ever Eucharistic Consecration book. This unprecedented spiritual resource presents profound truths, astonishing historical facts, powerful practical examples, a daily virtue to adopt, extraordinary prayers, and inspiring stories—all in an easy-to-follow daily format.
     Life is a pilgrimage. It is a sacred journey toward our eternal home with God. Learn what it means to be a pilgrim in a world that’s constantly trying to reduce you to a tourist and consumer. Journey with Mother Teresa, John Paul II, Thérèse of Lisieux, Maximilian Kolbe, Thomas Aquinas, Sister Faustina, the Children of Fatima, and Mary the Mother of God to experience Jesus in the Eucharist like never before.
     And…there is an adult and a children’s version! Available on Amazon and Dynamic Catholic websites.

Working Professionals
I recently discovered a spectacular podcast on faith, business, and leadership with Fr. Nathan Cromly, CSJ called “Dare Great Things for Christ.” Fr. Cromley invites you to ask yourself how we can be someone who really makes a change in this world. The gospel of Jesus Christ summons a response from those who receive it. That response lays down a pathway for the transformation of culture, society, and relationships that is nothing short of heroic.

     In this podcast, Father Nathan Cromly enables listeners to hear the voice of Christ calling them to greatness at every level; an ideal offering for those who have accepted the call to be leaders in their various states of life. It is available on most podcast apps: Apple, Spotify, Podbean, etc. Enjoy! Kym

Focus on Us
Strengthening Marriages
Our NEW and ongoing marriage ministry gives couples the time to love, listen, and share with each other and deepen the presence of Christ as the center of a marriage. Groups of 4–5 couples come together on a Friday evening, once a month. The host couple provides questions for meditation and sharing, then models how to share. Each couple moves to a separate space together and contemplates the questions and shares, just with each other. The evening is mainly about sharing as a couple. Couples of all ages and chapters of life are presently part of the ministry. Couples are welcome to join anytime. Contact Kym if you are interested in learning more.
