Separation to Closeness

From Separation to Closeness — The First Five Books of the Bible Speak Today

A St. Joseph Adult Formation Series - Online Via Google Meet

The fundamental human drive is for closeness with God, others and our environment. As people await the results of vaccine trials, many seek guidance on God's acting through separations to bring about even greater degrees of closeness than previously experienced. The first five books of the Bible show how God does that.

This series by our adult formation director, Dr. Dennis Sylva, will be presented online via Google Meet, Tuesday mornings and Thursday evenings. The first part ran through December 17. The second part runs January 5 through May 13.

Morning sessions will be 8:45-10 a.m. while evening sessions will run from 7-8 p.m.

If you are unable to make all the sessions, each one will start with a summary of the previous, to get you up to speed.

Register by contacting the parish office at 414-771-4626.
