Adult Formation Opportunities at St. Mary Immaculate!

Grinch Study

We don’t know why the Grinch hated Christmas. We just know he did. In this new Advent study, we will explore the faith themes in the Christmas classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! including, how did the Grinch’s heart grow three sizes come Christmas morning? How did Christmas save the Grinch? Could it be that the very thing we think we hate is the one thing that changes our lives? This Advent season, look at a familiar classic through the lens of faith and see how Christ speaks to us through our culture.

Please consider taking advantage of the diocesan partnership with the Virtual Learning Community for Faith Formation sponsored by the University of Dayton.  Take any 8 week online course in faith formation (graded or not graded) at an extremely discounted rate.  The Diocese of Joliet subsidizes this opportunity so that as many of our parishioners as possible can take courses at their own convenience. Topics include biblical studies, Church history, sacraments, Catholic Social Teaching, Marianist studies, Evangelii Gaudium, Islam, ministry, and so many others!  Follow this link to learn more: https://vlcff.udayton.edu
