Disciples’ Formation

Fr. Michael teaches a series of classes both online and in person.  These classes are designed to enrich the participants’ knowledge of the Catholic Faith through a detailed study of Sacred Scripture, the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and various aspects of the Tradition of the Church, such as Vatican Documents and the Lives of the Saints.  The courses run for three years.  Here is an example of one of the classes: Abraham.

The classes are held in room 114 and online through GoToMeeting.  If you would like to join the class remotely, please contact the parish office or email Fr. Michael at FRMICHAEL@SSCOSMAS-DAMIAN.ORG.  You can also log on through: Fr. Michael’s Meeting Room
The classes are designed so that a participant may join, even if they have not been participating in the past.
