PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will hold the third of its seven-session faith formation series entitled, “The Bible: Root of our Catholic Faith,” on Thursday, Dec. 16 beginning at 7 p.m. Sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Catechesis, the series is designed to help Catholics better understand their biblical foundations and to explore Catholic beliefs, as found in – or as “rooted in” – Scripture.
In the third session of the series Fr. Jim Gilmour and Fr. Ron Bonneau, co-directors of the diocesan Office of Hispanic Ministry, will discuss, What the Bible Says About Preferential Option for the Poor and Social Justice.
Held in the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center at 146 Metlars Lane in Piscataway, the sessions will take place once a month on Thursdays. Participants are not required to attend all sessions.
With a different topic each month, Diocesan priests will serve as presenters in their individual areas of expertise. Upcoming topics include: What the Bible Says About Moral Living, What the Bible Says About Suffering and Death, and What the Bible Says About Women. The series will end with an experience of different ways to pray with scripture.
The program is free and is open to all who want to know more about biblical tradition as it relates to Bible Scripture, and especially is intended as a resource for those who are involved in their parish ministries including: deacons, RCIA candidates and sponsors, evangelization and adult faith formation teams, catechists and parish catechetical leaders, Catholic school teachers, young adults, youth ministers, pastoral council members and liturgical ministers.
