ADULT FAITH FORMATION
"Adult faith formation, by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study, must be "the central task in the catechetical enterprise," becoming "the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age." Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, #5

ON-SITE ADULT FAITH FORMATION PROGRAMS
If you are interested in group studies held at the parish, we offer Adult Faith Formation programs geared toward adults interested in personal spiritual enrichment and growth in their understanding of the Catholic faith’s beliefs and teaching.
Selected series are professionally developed programs from sources such as Ascension Press, Catholic Scripture Study, Formed.org and Word On Fire. Most offerings include preparation prior to session meetings, class DVD presentations, then “digging deeper” in small group discussion. As a side benefit of attending these series, participants meet and get to know others in the church who are on a similar path.

Praying the Psalms
Thursday evenings beginning January 11, 2018

Join us as we study the Book of Psalms following the 7:00 pm Mass on Thursdays (7:30 to 8:30 pm).
