January Explanation Station from St. John Adult Faith Formation
The Fathers of the Church
If you aren’t familiar with the early Church Fathers, you may want to do some research on their inspiring lives. The Church Fathers were influential theologians, bishops or scholars whose writings explained key Scriptural principles in the early Church. They were not all ordained, and not all of them became saints.
But they had powerful communication skills, personal holiness and doctrinal orthodoxy, so we honor them unofficially as “fathers” for their proximity to the Apostles, their explanations of how to understand and apply Scripture, and their ability to teach the Catholic faith.
Studying the early Church Fathers has deepened the faith lives of many, even to the point of convincing non-Catholics to become Catholic.
The Scriptural Story of the Visitation Mystery in Luke 1:39-56 is the inspiration for Elizabeth Ministry International and its Chapters. Just as Mary and Elizabeth shared their joys and sorrows, we visit, share and support women and their families during the joys, challenges and sorrows of the childbearing years and beyond.
During this critical time in our history as we continue to grow and serve families who need us as they navigate through:
Pregnancy and Childbirth
Miscarriage, Stillbirth and Infant Loss,
Fertility and Infertility
Prenatal, Infant and Child Crisis
Sexual Sin Healing
This is an exciting time for Elizabeth Ministry International so we thank you for your support and prayers.
