Little Rock, Ark., Jan 15, 2012 / 11:06 am
The St. Andrew School of Formation (Escuela de Evangelización San Andrés) is offering classes in Arkansas to teach Hispanic Catholics about their faith and how to evangelize others.
Bishop Anthony B. Taylor of the Diocese of Little Rock approved the program in March 2011 for use by the diocesan Hispanic Ministry Office throughout the state.
The program offers Hispanic Catholics in Arkansas an opportunity to learn more about their faith, so they can use that knowledge to promote the faith to others.
"The end goal of this program is of empowering people to live out faith and be fully converted. This is what I want for my people. They grow in faith and gain the tools to share it. It is a great gift for the diocese," said Father Tony Robbins, pastor of churches in Camden, Hope and Warren and at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church in Magnolia, Ark. where they recently offered the first course for 15 parishioners.
