Adult Faith Development celebrates the beginning of another cycle of Putting Out Into the Deep!

The first of a new 3-year cycle of Putting Out Into the Deep! was honoured with a lively gathering and some good wine and cheese on Saturday May 12th, 2007. Joined by several of the presenters from this past year and the previous segment, participants gathered with Archbishop Gervais and co-ordinator Carol Kuzmochka to honour a good beginning and the accomplishments of 8 people who began their adult faith formation during the last 3-year cycle of the series.

7 people received Certificates of Participation signifying participation in at least 10 sessions: John Ferriss, Richard Ladouceur, Rosella Mac Neil, Jackie McGuinty, Terry Thibert, Alice Whelton and Marek Zaremba. Roberta Haughton received a Certificate in Adult Faith Development signifying 180 of adult faith development formation, as well as participation in a small faith-sharing group, and writing reflection papers.
