Grow in Your Faith
Ongoing learning about our faith and ourselves is an important part of the spiritual life. In today's age, we often feel a yearning to grow and learn spiritually. Ascension and St. Edmund Parish's diversity of ages, of culture, of households and of interests inspires us to offer a variety of programs to help children and adults enrich their spiritual life and grow in their knowledge and understanding of Church teaching.
Ascension and St. Edmund Parish seeks to offer parish families meaningful programs for children that will foster in them a lifelong love of Jesus and the Catholic faith. We know the strain placed on modern families and hope that all families with children find in our parish community a place where they and their children may feel God's unconditional love and may grow in their love of and as a disciple to Jesus. As you explore our website for programs to help your children grow in their faith, our school and parish religious education program are a great place to start. Many programs, groups and resources listed in our menu bar under Serve, Gather, and Learn are geared towards or include families with children. Please explore these menu items to learn more about programs for children and families.
Our parish offers a long list of programs for adults to grow in their faith. No matter what stage of life we are in, there are always new things to discover and learn about ourselves and the world around us. In circles of faith, we find ourselves reflecting upon the mystery of God in our lives and how we can best bring the love of God to those among us and beyond us. Explore our Adult Lifelong Learning and Formation web page to see what we have to offer. If you are not Catholic but interested in learning more about the Catholic faith, please contact our parish office at 708-848-2703.
