Sacramental Living:
What do we believe about the sacraments and what difference does it make? What is the sign? What is the grace? How might our lives be changed?

March 5 Sacraments — God’s handkerchiefs: What is a sacrament? What does the Church believe? Are there 2 or 7 or 32? What is the gift in marriage, unction, ordination, and confirmation? So what?  Fr. Bob and Kipper DeGavre

March 12 Baptism — Sign and Grace: What’s happening in baptism? Is it different for babies versus adults? Pouring versus getting dunked? Does anybody really change? Fr. Fred and Kipper DeGavre

March 19 Eucharist — Foundations for Grace: From where does our belief about the “Last Supper” or “Holy Communion” or “Holy Eucharist” come? What does it mean about what is happening in us and what is the gift we are receiving? How will we respond? Fr. Bob and Kipper DeGavre

March 26 Eucharist — Sign and Grace: What do we believe happens in the gift of bread and wine? Looking at the language of the Eucharist. Does the bread truly change to body and blood? Are we cannibals? Why every Sunday? Fr. Bob and Kipper DeGavre

April 2 Reconciliation — Sign and Grace: What is ‘reconciliation’ and how does it differ from Roman Catholic “Confession”? Do we HAVE to confess to a priest? How does it work and what do we believe is God’s gift (grace) through this sacrament? Mother Ashley and Kipper DeGavre

Growing a Rule of Life:
Our Relationship with…
God, Self, Others, and Creation. It is only
through understanding the various aspects
of our lives and faith that we can truly
come to know ourselves and ultimately,
know God in His fullness. This Easter Season,
we’ll seek those connections and walk
the path our faith leads us.
