The Latin phrase about the Monstrance above translates to "Dead to the World, Alive in Christ". There is great wonder and goodness in this world, so much joy! We recognize this in DTS, but also the fact that much that passes as "goodness", is anything but....
Life can be confusing, DTS is here to help sort it out! We need look no further than the Saints of yesterday- men, women devoted to Truth,- in order to gain inspiration.
WE ARE ALL CALLED TO HOLINESS!
We meet 3x monthly, 6:30-8pm at OLOL. We begin by catching up downstairs before we move to our "Upper Room" experience. This is where, after a short meditation, dive into a specific saint's story: about their life, struggles and triumphs through the Spirit. We tie these lessons to our own lives and the challenges of a modern world. This is followed by a question/answer session, and some amazing discussion. Group prayer follows.
WHO IS INVITED?
Have you been Confirmed? Then you are welcome! Our faith journey continues- there is no finish line! As we are reminded by the saints, all things are possible through God, and we will never truly find peace without Him. Those that attend 3 consecutive meetings of DTS receive their own official hoodie, followed by a brief, prayerful group ceremony. Pick up your cross, follow Him with us. See you at the annex!
SPECIAL THIS YEAR
Apart from our traditional DTS format, we are adding new experiences: one in which we leave it to our teens to choose from various faith building activities, and the other? ADORATION!
ADORATION DATES: All times @ OLOL from 7-8pm
Oct 4, Nov 1, Dec 6, Jan 3, Feb 7, Mar 7, Apr 4 (These evenings, youth are encouraged to attend, however adoration itself will be made possible by church staff/volunteers. Stay for ten minutes or the whole hour!)
