Focus on the Spirit
The Wild Goose series is truly a work of the Holy Spirit from 4PM Media and The Ministry of The Wild Goose. “Wild Goose” was a term that the ancient Celts had for the Holy Spirit. It is a 14-part series featuring Fr. Dave Pivonka and various interviews. Shot in various locations from Niagara Falls to the California desert, The Wild Goose invites viewers to an encounter, or a renewed encounter, with the Holy Spirit. This series is offered on Formed

Living in the Sacred is a follow-up faith-sharing resource for RENEW International’s popular Living in the Sacred, based on Ronald Rolheiser’s book, Sacred Fire. Living in the Sacred takes participants on a deeper spiritual journey exploring the second stage of discipleship: “Giving your life away.” Having moved through the “getting your life together” stage, participants have made life commitments either in marriage or other relationships, child raising, to sick or elderly parents or other relatives, careers, communities, etc. Living in the Sacred is about how we stay true to these commitments as disciples of Christ.
Any faith sharing group that would like to use this resource needs to contact Annette with an estimate of the number of books needed by August 25th, 2022, so we can get the books ordered.
Faith Sharing Communities
St. Anthony's Catholic Church has a rich heritage of Faith Sharing Communities! These groups have been a true source of spiritual growth and fellowship. A Faith Sharing Community is a small group of 8-12 adults (couples can participate together) who gather regularly (usually 12 meetings a year) to connect their faith with everyday life. At these gatherings they follow reflection materials that includes prayer, reading and faith sharing conversation.
New members are always welcome, and the communities meet on all sorts of schedules to make this process work for everyone. Please let me know if you think you might be interesting in joining a group. There is no commitment, we will just investigate if there is a group that will work for you.
