The Feast of the Dormition this year will become a milestone for God With Us Publications. For decades our catechetical programs have relied on the excellent publications provided to us by God With Us Publications. On August 15, the Eastern Catholic Directors of Religious Education (ECED), the catechetical arm of the Eastern Catholic Bishops of the USA that oversee God With Us Publications, launched a new initiative in online adult learning: God With Us Online.
The outreach project is dedicated to the catechetical renewal of Eastern Catholics in the United States in accord with the Church’s call for a new evangelization. God With Us Online will offer the same, excellent adult catechetical content online with some of the best teachers of the faith.
You can register for free online at http://easterncatholic.org/. All classes begin at 8 p.m. Eastern Standard Time and last for one hour. The fall schedule includes:
- “The Face of God: An Introduction to Byzantine Faith and Spirituality” by Rev. Deacon Daniel Dozier on Sept. 11 and 18.
- “Making Disciples: The Art of Bringing Others to Christ” by Rev. Alexander Wroblicky on Oct. 9, 16, and 23. Father Alexander will discuss what it means to be an apostle and lead participants in understanding what it means to be called to discipleship and how to respond to that call in this three-part series.
- ”Unlocking the Mystery: An Introduction to Eastern Christian Bible Study” by Joshua Mangels on Nov. 6 and 13.
- “The Gift of God, Preparing for the Nativity of the Lord” by Rev. David Anderson on Dec. 18.
- “Baptized Into Christ: The Mystery of Initiation and the Identity of the People of God” by Rev. Sebastian Carnazzo on Jan. 8 and 13, 2020.
This is a particularly timely roll-out for the Archeparchy of Pittsburgh. Feedback from both Archeparchial Assemblies held at St. John the Baptist Cathedral in Munhall, Pa. on Sept. 2018 and June 2019 showed a consistent request for more faith formation opportunities for adults.
This new initiative is the work of our Archeparchial ECED representatives and provides quality Eastern Christian formation from the comfort of your own home.
