Adult Faith Formation

Adult Faith Formation 

Faith Formation is an ongoing responsibility in our Catholic Faith. As adults, we are to commit to a lifelong journey of understanding our faith, proclaiming our faith, and living out our faith. Adult faith formation has become an important part of our parish life.
Our "team" strives to offer a variety of means to help our parishioners through their journey through workshops, retreats, parish missions, dynamic speakers, seminars, programs, small groups, etc.
Any adult parishioners interested in growing in their faith are welcome to join our team and most importantly to attend the events.

Just a reminder if you are looking for some good spiritual programs, books, movies, family entertainment be sure to check out FORMED.  Remember this is a gift from the parish for us all to enjoy, it is like a Catholic Netflix.  You will be surprised all it offers.

No Greater Love – A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion
A Study for Lent

In No Greater Love, You Will Experience the Unconditional Love Christ Has for You We often hear about Jesus’ passion and death, but imagine experiencing them for the very first time. In No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion, we are going to walk step-by-step with Jesus on his journey from his agony in the garden to his crucifixion on Calvary. Along the way, we will unpack the biblical background to these events, the prophecies, and most especially, the ways Jesus is inviting us to walk more closely with him today.

No Greater Love is a five-part Bible study program that begins:

Sundays at 6 PM – February 18 – March 17

Wednesdays at 9 AM – February 21 – March 20

 No Greater Love is a biblical pilgrimage that reveals Christ’s amazing love for us. Best-selling author Edward Sri guides you through the last hours of Christ’s life. Every step of the way, Old Testament prophecies, messianic expectations, biblical symbolism, and historical context shed light on the mystery of Christ’s suffering and death. Experience a deeper understanding and appreciation of God’s immeasurable and unconditional love for you—grow closer to Jesus than you ever have before.
