1 St. Robert Bellarmine Parish Celebrate our journey of learning and sharing our faith MARY, STAR OF THE NEW EVANGELIZATION ADULT FAITH FORMATION

2 Dear Friends, The Year of Faith closes on November 24, Hopefully the graces of the year will continue to inspire each of us in our role to hand on the faith and be a witness to the Gospel. Discipleship is challenging and Pope Francis, in his first encyclical letter, invites us to turn in prayer to Mary, Mother of the Church and Mother of our Faith: Mother, help our faith! Open our ears to hear God s word and to recognize his voice and call. Awaken in us a desire to follow in his footsteps, to go forth from our own land and to receive his promise. Help us to be touched by his love, that we may touch him in faith. Help us to entrust ourselves fully to him and to believe his love, especially at times of trial, beneath the shadow of the cross, when our faith is called to mature. Sow in our faith the joy of the Risen One. Remind us that those who believe are never alone. Teach us to see all things with the eyes of Jesus, that he may be the light for our path. And may this light of faith always increase in us, until the dawn of that undying day which is Christ himself, your Son, Our Lord! Pope Francis When we love the Lord, the more we want to know about him, grow closer to him. When we learn more about him and our faith, we love the Lord even more deeply and desire to share that love with others! Read through this booklet carefully, join us when possible and PLEASE invite your friends, and neighbors! Joan Fitzpatrick, Director of Adult Faith Formation
