Welcome to

Generations of Disciples

What is Generations of Disciples?

Generations of Disciples (G.O.D. for short) is an intergenerational program for our entire parish community, from childcare through adulthood. There will be times when we are all together and times when we will have age-appropriate breakout sessions. G.O.D. provides the opportunity for you and your family to continue to grow as lifelong learners of our Catholic faith, to be strengthened as disciples of Jesus, and to become closer to God.

Our focus this year will be Scripture.

Adult Break-Out

The adult sessions of G.O.D. will study scripture using A Quick Journey Through the Bible from Ascension. All adults are invited to participate.

A Quick Journey Through the Bible provides an excellent introduction and overview of Scripture from a Catholic perspective. This eight-part series, presented by Jeff Cavins, covers salvation history from beginning to end. The complexity of the Bible is made accessible through an easy-to-follow narrative approach, and an ingenious color-coded Bible Timeline. As you begin to understand the Bible, you will develop a greater understanding for your faith, a deeper experience of the sacraments, and a closer relationship to Christ.

 

“The effect on my parishioners has been wonderful: a deeper love for Christ, a deeper experience with the sacraments, and continued love for the Scriptures.”

—Fr. Becker, Minnesota
