Join Saint Agnes for The Search for Lent 2021
Our Lenten offering for 2021 for adult learners will be a FORMED program entitled The Search a new Catholic evangelization experience hosted by Chris Stefanick. The Search is a seven-week video series that dares to ask: What is this journey in between the event we call “birth” and the one we call “death”? Is the journey taking you somewhere, or are you leading yourself to some kind of destination – a destination that could extend beyond your last breath? What do you want from your life during the in between? The questions are there. And, the answers are too. The Search features scientists, astronauts, artists, and fellow searchers who uncover the answers to life’s big questions on happiness, purpose, meaning, and faith.
Saint Agnes will offer The Search through small group discussion of the seven weekly videos. Registration is required and attendees may choose an in-person or virtual discussion session. In-person sessions will be held in Resurrection Hall and all current masking and social distancing mandates will be strictly followed. Virtual sessions will be held via Zoom conferencing.
Please register for the session day, time, and venue that is most convenient for you. Sessions will last about one hour and this time does not include watching the videos. You will view the videos weekly at your leisure before your discussion time. A facilitator will help keep discussion flowing.
There is a small free will offering of $5.00 to cover the cost of materials. Please register no later than Wednesday, February 10, 2021.
