Upcoming Faith Formation Opportunities

The Catholic Formation team at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Wauwatosa, in coordination with parishioners, offers the following opportunities to further explore Christianity, Catholicism, and our relationship with Jesus. 

Receiving Jesus at Christmas as Mary and Joseph Did

Sunday, Dec. 8, 9-10:15 a.m., St. Joseph Room of the Parish Center, led by Dennis Sylva

  • What examples do Mary and Joseph provide for us on how to receive Jesus as each of them did?
  • Which characteristics of Mary are highlighted by Luke the evangelist, and which characteristics of Joseph are highlighted by Matthew the evangelist?
  • How can these enrich our lives and the lives of our families during Advent, Christmas, and the whole year?

The Gospel of John and the Formation of Beloved Disciples

After the holidays, we welcome new members into either our Tuesday morning Bible Study group that meets from 9-10:15 a.m. or our Thursday group that meets from 7-8 p.m. For those who wish to join, we begin meeting again on Tuesday, January 14 and on Thursday, January 16.

We will start off by discussing who John says Jesus is for us and the significance of this Jesus for our living vibrant Christian lives.

Please contact Dennis Sylva at 414-771-4626 if you are interested in joining the group so that you can receive a binder.
