Our Parish now has a FORMED subscription. Go to FORMED.org to create your own login. Use the Parish Code: C63JK4, which is unique to St. Bernard parish. Make sure to bookmark the login page! You will now have access to all FORMED has to offer. Movies, Studies, E-Books, and Talks will all be accessible on any device you use. Currently, FORMED does not have an app so access everything through the web.
In the coming months, we will offer adult education studies, so we can all grow and learn together.
The video below is the FORMED trailer. If you are not already hooked, this will convince you to sign up today!
These are some well-established groups, which meet six times in the fall and six times during Lent. New groups are always forming and some of the groups are accepting new members. Groups generally consist of six to 12 members.
Facilitators lead discussions and all the groups review the same material.
Contact Kevin Laufenberg for more information or to sign up.
Throughout the year, we will offer book or DVD studies to anyone interested. Check the "Events" page for information about upcoming studies.
In early 2016, our parish read Rediscover Jesus by Matthew Kelley. We hosted several follow-up and faith sharing sessions, which were well received by participants.
The parish library, located up one flight of stairs in the Religious Education building, is open daily with the same hours as the parish office and during weekend liturgies. Anyone may borrow books, movies or music on a wide range of theological and general topics, including the saints, our faith, the liturgy, marriage and family and prayer.
Contact Kevin Laufenberg with questions.
The Young Adults of the parish (college-aged to 40) are invited to participate in a weekly study from 6:15-7:45 p.m., each Wednesday during the school year in the parish library. The group chooses what to study. Recent offerings have been an Ascension Press DVD series on church history, Pope Francis' The Joy of the Gospel and a DVD series on Evangelization! There is no on-going commitment. Come whenever you are available!
Current study, Jan-Feb 2017: Happiness (from the Magis Center). This study is available on FORMED.org and will finish one week before Lent begins.
