 Other Ways to Grow in Faith

 

Pastoral Ministry Formation

Provides grounding in scripture and theology for the laity as they become increasingly responsible for the life and ministry of the Church. Pastoral Ministry Formation equips participants to fulfill the roles to which they are called by their baptism and for which their gifts and the needs of the times challenge them. Click here for more information  on the Diocesan Pastoral Ministry Formation classes being offered through ITV.  

20s & 30s Young Adult Ministry

The first Friday of every month we meet for 6:00pm Mass at the COLG Chapel and then go to the home of Gentry Heimerman to have pizza, beer, and hear a presentation with regards to something faith related. Other events throughout the year will be posted on our Facebook page "Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe Young Adults'. If you have any questions or to find out more information on how to get involved. Contact: Taylor Schinstock: 620-430-1155 or visit the COLG Young Adult page

An Introduction to Sacred Scripture

This is a class to explain how the sacred writings were composed, edited, adopted by the Catholic Church and the author of the book, Getting to know The Bible by Fr. Melvin Ferrell, S.S. that we will be using provides an excellent way on using the bible that will hopefully meet your needs. Contact: Sister Rose Mary 225-4802, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Outreach Ministry

Sister Rose Mary needs your help with names of family members, friends, neighbors, that you would like her to visit.  It is another way the Church wishes to assure the person that we care about his/her journey of life, the life of faith.  Contact Sister Rose Mary W 225.4802 (C 620.789.2101) This email address is being protected from spambots.
