About Adult Religious Education

As Catholics, we have the privilege and the responsibility to educate ourselves and our children in the faith. We can take our example from our Blessed Mother Mary, as Pope Saint John Paul II wrote in Catechesis in Our Time No. 73…

…By a unique vocation, she saw her Son Jesus “increase in wisdom and in stature, and in favor.” As He sat on her lap and later as He listened to her throughout the hidden life at Nazareth, this Son, who was “the only Son from the Father,” “full of grace and truth,” was formed by her in human knowledge of the Scriptures and of the history of God’s plan for His people, and in adoration of the Father. She in turn was the first of His disciples. She was the first in time, because even when she found her adolescent Son in the temple she received from Him lessons that she kept in her heart. She was the first disciple above all else because no one has been “taught by God” to such depth. She was “both mother and disciple,” as St. Augustine said of her, venturing to add that her discipleship was more important for her than her motherhood. There are good grounds for the statement made in the synod hall that Mary is “a living catechism”…

At Our Lady of Peace, we offer many opportunities for you to receive the lessons of Jesus…
