Paul Fahey: Reading Church Documents in Community
Paul Fahey is a retreat leader and writer. He is a co-founder of Where Peter Is, wherepeteris.com, the founder and co-host of the Pope Francis Generation podcast, popefrancisgeneration.com, and a co-founder of Practical Kerygma, practicalkerygma.com.
For the past eight years, he has worked as a professional catechist and is currently working toward a Masters Degree in Mental Health Counseling. His long-term goal is to provide pastoral counseling for Catholics who have been spiritually abused.
You can join him in mid-April for an upcoming workshop on Desiderio Desideravi.
The workshop will help you understand and participate in the Mass as a life-giving encounter with God's relentless desire for you.
By prayerfully reading and discussing what the Church actually teaches about the Mass, you will not only grow in your own love for the Eucharist but you will be more prepared to share that devotion with others. Along with myself and a small community of learners, you will come to see the Mass as the privileged place to encounter Jesus, experience his healing love, and be divinized, that is, as St. Augustine said, “become Christ himself.”
This workshop is for anyone who wants to deepen their faith, including catechists, ministers, and clergy who want to enhance their ministry and connect with a supportive community of learners. Whether you're looking to renew your love for Jesus, find a deeper sense of belonging, or grow in your relationship with God, the Desiderio Desideravi workshop is the perfect opportunity for you. In this workshop, you will have:
* the freedom to participate as you want
* the opportunity to learn and grow within a small group
* a non-judgemental space that proclaims and invites, never imposes
* the skills to read and understand papal documents
* the chance to ask and discuss any questions that you have
These workshops are open to everyone, but members of Father's Heart Academy will have access to them for half the price! In addition to studying Desiderio Desideravi in April, there will also be workshops on Pope Francis' life changing teaching about holiness, Gaudete et Exsultate this summer and the Church’s newest social encyclical, Fratelli Tutti, this fall.
