GIFT-Generations in Faith Together
Bible Study
Lectio Divina

GIFT-our Faith Formation Program is held at Our Lady of Victory Parish
GIFT replaces the traditional Faith Formation model. Rather than dropping children off once per week, families attend together several times per year.

But GIFT is not just for children! Does this include you? Yes! GIFT is for all ages including: Singles, Couples, College Students, Teenagers, Kids, Mom & Dad, Grandma & Grandpa, Students, Empty Nesters, Newcomers, Families, Retired People and All Parishioners!

Based upon the Gospel and the call of Pope Benedict XVI and his predecessors for a new evangelization and stronger catechetical effort, and after much discernment, we have changed our faith formation program to what we call GIFT: Generations in Faith Together. GIFT uses a liturgy-centered, lifelong, and intergenerational approach to Catholic faith formation. The goal is to help and support everyone who wishes to become a better disciple by integrating faith, worship, and life in light of the Gospel. Since this is an ongoing, lifelong task, we invite everyone in the parish to participate.

See the GIFT website at www.olvgift.com for registration and more info.

Lectio Divina-held at Our Lady of the Assumption Parish

Lectio Divina, or Divine Reading, is a traditional monastic practice for experiencing scripture as The Living Word to connect with and deepen our relationship with the Divine.  The process contains four stages ~~~~Read, Reflect Respond, and Contemplate. The roots of this ancient practice goes back to the third century.  The Second Vatican Council recommended  Lectio Divina  to the general  public.  
  Mary  Hines will offer to introduce this practice  to OLA and OLV  parishioners beginning Wednesday, October 5 after the 8AM Mass at Our Lady of the Assumption.  This will be a pilot program for five weeks.     He said to them in reply, "My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it."  Luke 8:21
