Last week was a busy week here at OLFE. Our staff worked on multiple activities. To see what Maureen Grisanti Larison, Consultant for Adult Formation and Initiation, organized continue below. Continue to the next post to read about what Butch Ekstrom, Association Director of Faith Formation, was doing last week .
Wednesday, 12/3, the Faith Club held their annual Christmas Dinner and Dance.
The Archdiocesan Faith Clubs exist to meet the catechetical needs of adults (18 years of age and older) with developmental or intellectual disabilities. These clubs are sponsored by the Office of Lifelong Formation and Education. Maureen Grisanti Larison, one of the consultants from OLFE, works with facilitators to nurture faith formation and provide a social environment at the meetings. These facilitators lead groups at 5 different parishes once a month. During the club meeting members learn more about heir Catholic faith, make new friends, socialize, and engage in service activities. There are three large events during the year at which the 5 individual clubs come together to celebrate; the Christmas Dinner and Dance is one.
