Bringing Faith to Life - Augustinian Adult Faith Formation

Spearheaded by Kieran O'Mahony OSA, the Irish Augustinians have launched a new initiative aimed at Faith Formation for adults.  This is called Bringing Faith to Life.  The programme takes advantage of the preparations for the Eucharistic Congress which will take place next June in Dublin.  Initially, the programme will take place in three sessions with a fourth one proposed for September.

The Augustinian communities around the country have been clustered with their closest Augustinian neighbours for the events.  Each session takes the format of Podcasts which are led by John Byrne OSA, Sean Goan, Kieran O'Mahony OSA and Bernadette Toal - better known to many of you as the "Orlagh Team".

On Saturday the 21st of January the Dublin - Drogheda cluster gathered in Rivermount for the first of the sessions.  We were all delighted with the turnout.  118 people packed the Jubilee Room in the church and participated in the sessions which were led by Kieran.  Group work was marked by much conversation and people from Orlagh, Rivermount and Meath St./ John's Lane learned from each other as well as from Kieran.

Rivermount provided the catering and was very pleased to host the event.

This initiative marks a big effort on behalf of those involved and on behalf of the whole province of Augustinians.  The Eucharistic Congress provides the spring board for us to embark on the project of Adult Faith Formation in a new way.

Well done to all involved.
