Annual Deacons’ Retreat and Study Day: Rediscovering the Small Catechism

08:30 AM - 04:00 PM

Graymoor Spiritual Life Center
1350 Route 9
Garrison, US-NY , 10524-0301
845-424-3671

An annual event sponsored by the Diaconate Council for synodically rostered deacons.

 
Our day will follow our pattern for worship:
 
Gathering
Worship: The Small Catechism on the Sacrament of Holy Baptism
 
Word
Holy Conversation: The Small Catechism on the Ten Commandments: What does this mean today?
 
Worship: The Small Catechism on Confession and Forgiveness
 
Holy Conversation: The Small Catechism on the Apostles’ Creed: What does this mean today?
 
Meal
Worship: The Small Catechism on the Sacrament of the Altar
 
Sending
Holy Conversation: Luther’s Preface to the Small Catechism of 1529, and the Catechism’s Relevance Today
 
Worship: The Small Catechism on the Lord’s Prayer

Come, let us engage the Small Catechism worshipfully and devotionally, rediscovering its meaning for such a time as this. During this Reformation 500 Anniversary year, Presiding Bishop Eaton has invited everyone in the ELCA to take a deeper look at the Small Catechism, a little work that has had profound impact on Lutherans for centuries. But it may be that we have not really had much to do with the Small Catechism since we were children. To engage the Catechism worshipfully and prayerfully and in holy conversation with each other is a great way to commemorate this 500th Anniversary year of the Reformation’s beginning, and to strengthen our teaching ministries and our work of faith formation.

 

The cost is $35, which includes a light breakfast and lunch. Please complete your registration by March 20, 2017.
