Adoration Chapel of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church, Kensington, MD

Adult Faith Formation

Two very successful faith building and formation programs have been active in Holy Redeemer over the past few years.  Details follow for Walking with Purpose, the women's program, and That Man is You (TMIY), the men's program.  These two programs welcome men and women of the parish to join and share in faith strengthening and building activities that help in enhancing appreciation of the call to Christian life issuing from the Scriptures and the teachings of Holy Mother Church.  Please take a moment to review the program descriptions herein.  Single or married parishioners are welcome to participate.

Holy Redeemer Men's Group

The Holy Redeemer Men's Group brings together like minded men, who are seeking to be a better person, husband, and father while living their Catholic faith fully.  The group meets on Saturday mornings from 6:30 am to 8 am in the school auditorium.  We provide a free light breakfast, followed by a short video presentation.  After the video, we form into small groups for discussions. The camaraderie this program has fostered among the men of Holy Redeemer has strengthened their faith and provided practical support as they live out their vocations as Catholic men. There is no cost for joining and guests are always welcomed.  Currently, we are conducting virtual meetings until the COVID-19 resitrictions are lifted. For more information, email Christopher Doerr or call him at 240-338-4381 (cell).   

Walking with Purpose - Women's Bible Study - Fall Program

Do you desire to grow in your Catholic faith and connect with other women in the parish?  We invite you to consider joining Walking with Purpose at Holy Redeemer.  Walking with Purpose transforms the hearts and lives of women by providing bible studies that enable women to know Christ through scripture and the teachings of the Catholic Church.  Women of all ages are welcome.  In the Fall of 2019, we will be offering two programs: Opening Your Heart and Grounded in Hope.

The Opening Your Heart program is a 22-lesson Bible Study that will "take you on an exciting journey closer to the heart of God.  It is an incredibly effective guide to deep, lasting transformation of the heart and we encourage all participants new to Walking with Purpose to begin here, regardless of previous experience with Bible Study.

Grounded in Hope is based on the book of Hebrews and is also 22 weeks long.  "In a world where levels of despair, addiction and suicide are rising, we need more than cliches or positive thinking.  Grounded in Hope will help you encounter Jesus in such a powerful, comforting and stabilizing ways that He can become your lifeline.  Hebrews contains some of the most beautiful passages you'll find in Scripture.  It will comfort you and challenge you.  Every word of it has a treasure to mine, and those who are willing to make the effort will be richly rewarded."

Our kickoff event will be Monday, September 16, 2019, 7 PM, in the lower level of the church.  The sessions begin on September 23 & 24 - you can choose the time that works best for you:

Monday - 7-8:30 PM; Tuesday - 8:15-9:30 AM (free babysitting); Tuesday - 9:30-10:45 AM (free babysitting)
