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.
