Praying, Reflecting, and Sharing the Faith with the Questions of Jesus
Presented by: Allan F. Wright, author of 25 Life-Changing Questions from the Gospels
Date: March 14, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Good teachers have good answers but exceptional teachers ask great questions. There is no greater teacher than Jesus and the hundred plus questions he asks throughout the Gospels can still comfort and challenge us today.

In this webinar Allan Wright will discuss a few of the questions Jesus poses in the Gospels as a way to grow in our faith and and to share that faith with others.



Catechesis for Children with Special Needs
Presented by Peter Ductram, Director, Office of Catechesis, Archdiocese of Miami
Date: March 21, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

Sacred Scripture and church documents call us to form the faith of all the baptized, especially those with special needs. And although we echo this view, we wonder how do we invite? How do we welcome or we include them? Where do we start? What are the most effective strategies out there? How do we know if we are ready to work with children with disabilities?

In this webinar, Peter Ductram will discuss the vision of the Church in the United States for catechesis with people with special needs and the effective implementation of that vision. He will share valuable resources to help start and build a more creative catechesis.



Faith Formation for the Generations & Seasons of Adulthood
Presented by John Roberto of Lifelong Faith Associates
Date: May 2, 2017
Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM EDT

One of the key features of twenty-first century adult faith formation is addressing the unique life tasks, needs, interests, and spiritual and faith journeys at each stage of adulthood: young adults (20s-30s), midlife adults (40s-50s), mature adults (mid 50s-mid 70s), and older adults (75+).

Given this great diversity across the adult stage of life, it is imperative that adult faith formation programs, activities, and resources are targeted and tailored to the lives of adults—at each stage of life and in each generation.

This webinar will provide practical approaches for addressing the four seasons of adulthood using new 21st century tools and methods.




The opportunity to participate in these webinars is wonderful. Thank you so much for offering them. It is great to be able to consider important issues and hear from such very good presenters without having to leave my office (which I might not be able to do)! This is a great service that Ave Maria is offering. I am most appreciative.
