Parishes offer summer programs

Wayne County parishes are presenting a series of three adult-education opportunities this summer. The sessions, being offered by St. Michael Parish in Lyons, St. John the Evangelist Parish in Clyde and St. Patrick Parish in Savannah, will follow the same format as the diocesan Alive in Christ catechist-formation curriculum.

While this curriculum is mainly intended for Catholic-school teachers and parish catechists, the three sessions are open to any interested adults, said Sister of St. Joseph Catherine Gibbons, faith-formation coordinator at the three parishes.

“It’s for people who are passing on the faith to children and youth,” Sister Gibbons said.

The first session will focus on an as yet undetermined Scriptural theme and will be lead by Scott Rutan, coordinator of family and adult faith-formation programs at St. Patrick Parish in Victor. This session will take place from June 27 from 7-9 p.m. in the St. Michael’s church hall.

Joan Workmaster, former diocesan director of liturgy, will lead “Liturgy and Catechesis: How Are They Linked?” on July 17, and Jann Armantrout, diocesan life-issues coordinator, will lead an Aug. 23 session about social justice.

There is a $10 fee for each session, and participants are asked to register at least one week prior to each session.

For more information or to register, contact Sister Gibbons at St. John’s, 315/923-3941.
