Saint John the Evangelist Catholic Church Adult Faith Enrichment program is in pursuit of knowledge illuminated by faith in accord with the Magisterium.
We hold faithfully to the teaching authority of the Magisterium while boldly pursuing all truth accessible to the curious mind.
Since all truth is from God and leads back to God, every honest pursuit of truth will begin with what God has revealed—whether written on the human heart, accessible to reason without direct revelation, or accessible only through direct revelation—and be consonant with what his Church teaches.
We embrace the teachings of Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and the Magisterium with a spirit of Christian humanism that relates all learning to Jesus Christ.
We promote the moral, spiritual and religious values of our Catholic community by integrating learning and faith. Join us in the conversion journey where we take ownership of our faith and grow ever more deeply in our relationship with God and with others in our community.
“To be pastorally effective, intellectual formation is to be integrated with a spirituality marked by a personal experience of God. In this way a purely abstract approach to knowledge is overcome in favor of that intelligence of heart which knows how ‘to look beyond’ and then is in a position to communicate the mystery of God to people.”-Pope John Paul II, Pastores dabo vobis
Accessing Word on Fire
We are blessed here at Saint John to have access to multiple virtual resources to assist us in our Faith Formation and Journey. One of those programs is the Bishop Barron-based Word on Fire. Here is how you can gain access to this system:
First, you need to be registered in Flocknote, our parish’s email and texting tool. If you have participated in an Adult Faith Formation program, you are likely already registered. But if not, please register at http://flocknote.com/sjecc
Then, from the Flocknote home page, you can visit www.wofdigital.org to watch any of the videos, whenever you want, without ever having to login. You can also download the Word on Fire Digital app from the Apple or Android store, and watch directly from that app on your device.
