Our Lady, Star of the Sea in Marblehead to host adult faith formation

MARBLEHEAD — Our Lady, Star of the Sea parish center, 80 Atlantic Avenue, will host an adult faith formation this fall.

Scheduled for Oct. 10 and 17, 7-8:30 p.m. in the parish center, the formation evenings will explore the teachings of world-renowned theologian and Trappist monk, Father Thomas Keating, OCSO, in his compelling book, “World Without End.”

With love and compassion, Father Keating examines life in our modern era with the observation, “We have probably all been wounded in our childhood. Nobody grows up without suffering. Do we all have to see a psychiatrist because we all need therapy?”

A gifted teacher, Father Keating guides us through a spiritual journey where we recognize God as the master psychiatrist who loves us unconditionally and whose forgiveness and compassion are limitless.

We invite you to participate in this discussion, which will be enhanced by a required reading of the book prior to our first session on October 10. The book is available for purchase in the rectory during office hours for $15.
