Adult Faith Formation

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.

FULFILLED Part 2 – Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism

Fulfilled explores the biblical roots of the Catholic Faith. It uncovers God’s consistent design for our worship of him and his relationship with us. Learn how the Old Testament Tabernacle can be used as a blueprint for the Catholic Faith and how Jesus fulfilled it in the New Testament. Part Two Drawn into the Divine Mystery focuses on elements of the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more

Even if you did not take part in Part 1 you are welcome to join us in Part 2 which has 6 Sessions.

Sundays: April 24 – May 29 from 6 PM to 7:30 PM in undercroft

Wednesdays: April 27 – June 1 from 9 AM to 10:30 AM in undercroft
