Fall Adult Faith Formation

For Adult Faith Formation this fall, All Saints Parish will be offering a 7-session video series entitled “Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Lively Virtues.” This series is by Bishop Robert Barron (Bishop of Winona-Rochester, MN).

Join Bishop Robert Barron for this presentation of the seven deadly sins, those great spiritual blocks that inhibit our flourishing in relationship with God and one another. Based on Dante’s writings, the seven deadly sins correspond to the seven stories of Dante’s Mt. Purgatory:

  • Pride
  • Envy
  • Anger
  • Sloth
  • Gluttony
  • Avarice
  • Lust

The seven deadly sins are all presented as patterns of dysfunction within us that lead to unhappiness. Bishop Barron shows us how to counteract these seven sinful patterns through a conscious process of opposition, known as the “seven lively virtues.” These offer antidotes to each sin and help set us on the right path to healing and happiness.

All Saints is showing these episodes in the Activities Center this fall. Deacon Brian Majewski and Fr. Lee will facilitate these sessions. This series is appropriate for adults.

Registration is necessary for all participants so that we may pre-order the materials which are used during the sessions. If a spouse attends with you, then only one registration form and fee needs to be submitted.

  • Registrations are due no later than 4:00 PM on Friday, August 26.
  • Registrations received on or before August 26 will have a reduced cost of $20.00, as we pre-order materials.
