Living in the Word of God

'My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and do it' (Luke 8:21)

Echoing the words of Archbishop Smith's Pastoral Letter Living in the Word of God (Sept. 2017), the Living in the Word seminars seek to 'create opportunities for fellow disciples to gather and reflect deeply upon the Word of God. In this way we not only support one another as we grow in our relationship with Jesus, but also encourage one another to embrace the common mission that is ours by virtue of our Baptism into his Church.'

These term-time weekly hour-long seminars are offered through the Benedict XVI Institute, both on our beautiful campus at Newman Theological College and in parishes who wish to host them. The seminars are free of charge and are open to all. To register please contact Reception at Newman Theological College by email or by phone - 780 392 2450.
