Faith Formation

Adult Faith Formation

 

The Adult Faith Formation Ministry nurtures the spiritual growth of our diverse faith community by encouraging adults to deepen their experience of God in daily life. Adult Faith Formation provides a variety of daytime, evening, and weekend opportunities to study Scripture; share faith; participate in information and discussion sessions on topics of Catholic faith and practice; and learn about and practice traditional and modern forms of spirituality. Members of the Adult Faith Formation Ministry collaborate to identify areas of interest to parishioners, find available resources and speakers, plan and develop programs, and research contacts for future programming.

    A Call to Action—How Will We Stand Together 

    As people of faith, and members of human communities, we look to our sacred texts, and to the people who inspire us, for guidance and examples of how to “act rightly” and live “in right relationship” with one another. We will explore our sources of moral leadership—and then ask how we, too, are called to be moral leaders. Please join us for one or both evenings of this program.
