Talks on Faith and Action – Spiritual Pathways

“Were not our hearts burning (within us) while he spoke to us and opened the scriptures to us?” Luke 24.32

Fr. Tony Mancuso and Mr. Robert Rodrigues, our Catechetical Ministry Director, have offered a series of talks aimed at enriching and increasing our knowledge and appreciation of our faith. The videos of these talks can be accessed through the links below.


On Wednesday, June 15th, Fr. Tony spoke on “Spiritual Pathways” This talk focused on the variety of Christian spiritualities. The video of this talk can be accessed here.

He began his talks last year with a series of talks on the Knowledge of the Faith (according to the outline given by the US Catholic Bishops). Videos of those talks can be accessed online here.

Fr. Tony resumed his series this year with an October talk on

The Theological Virtues of Faith, Hope and Love” (link to video)

and, in November, gave the first of a series of talks on Pope Francis’ encyclical on the care of creation

“Laudato Si”  (link to videos of first five talks).


Robert Rodrigues is offering a series of talks which will take place at 11:15 on Sunday mornings in the Farana Center Hall. While the inspiration for scheduling these talks was his desire to offer enrichment opportunities for the parents of Catechetical Ministry students, the talks are available to and will be very worthwhile for all the adults of our parish.

Robert’s first talk, which took place on December 6th, was

Franciscan Spirituality: exploring the spirituality of St. Francis that has captured the pope’s heart” (link to video)
