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.
