Fellowship in Faith for Adults

Sundays from 10am to 11am

The Dean's Forum

Each Sunday morning there is an opportunity for adults to come together during Fellowship in Faith for spiritual conversation around diverse topics. Come and join an open and supportive conversation in which you will find yourself uplifted and encouraged on your spiritual journey. It is not necessary to make it to every session. Enough context is provided each week for you to join the conversation whenever you are able to attend.

Catechumenate (Episcopal 101)

Sundays, February 23 to March 29, 2020 at 10am

A catechumen is someone "with whom the word of God echoes" and who is preparing to be baptized, confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church at the Easter Vigil. Each Sunday, during the season of Lent, our catechumens will enter into conversations about what it means to live a Christian life in the 21st Century. Topics such as scripture, prayer, spirituality, Church doctrine and the Episcopal Church will be discussed. The Catechumenate meets at the Mercer School during Fellowship in Faith and is led by Father Delaney. If you have already been baptized, confirmed or received into the Episcopal Church and would simply like a refresher course, this might be the group for you. Sign up with Father Delaney by emailing him a mdelaney@incarnationgc.org or sign up on Realm at https://tinyurl.com/Catechumenate2020

Mystagogia: Living into the Mysteries

April 19 to May 3 at 10am during Fellowship in Faith

The Great Fifty Days of Easter is the time when the church invites us to live into the very mysteries of our faith. The process of reflection and discernment is called "mystagogy", a Greek word meaning "living into the mysteries."

This forum, led by Dean Sniffen and Canon Delaney, will explore how we can discover our own unique spiritual gifts and deepen our understanding of the mysteries of faith.
