PISCATAWAY – The Diocese of Metuchen will host a talk on Prayer and the Bible on Thursday, May 5 beginning at 7 p.m. in the St. John Neumann Pastoral Center, 146 Metlars Lane.
Sponsored by the Diocesan Office of Catechesis, the two-hour program will be presented by Father George Farrell, pastor of St. Joseph Parish, North Plainfield. Fr. Farrell received a bachelor of science degree in elementary education, a master of divinity degree from Pope John XXIII National seminary in Weston, Mass. and has a certificate in spirituality from the Pontifical Institute of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) in Rome. Prior to his studies in the priesthood, Father Farrell taught religion to elementary and high school students and was a parish director of music.
The talk on Prayer and the Bible will provide participants with an experience of different ways to pray with scripture and to enhance their current prayer life. The program is the last of a seven-part series entitled, “The Bible: Root of our Catholic Faith.” The adult faith formation program is designed to help Catholics better understand their biblical foundations and to explore Catholic beliefs, as found in – or as “rooted in” – Scripture.
The program is free and is open to all who want to learn how to use the Bible as a tool to invigorate their prayer life. It is especially 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.
