Workshop planned on growing faith-filled families

Friday, October 15, 2021

A workshop on the importance of family in one’s faith life will be hosted by the Continuing Formation office of Saint Meinrad Seminary and School of Theology, St. Meinrad, IN. The workshop will be held on the Saint Meinrad campus.

“Welcome Home! Growing Traits of a Faith-Filled Family” is the topic of a workshop scheduled for Friday, November 5, 2021. The presenters are Kathy Gallo and Sue Grenough.

The workshop will explore how to cultivate faith in a post-modern era. What does research tell us? What does experience teach us? Bringing research and experience into conversation, this workshop will explore new studies on the importance of family in the faith life of children, youth and adults. It will also identify ways to apply these findings at home, at the parish, and in the community.
