Adult Faith Formation seeks to move people from faithful parishioners to lifelong disciples.
This is done in a variety of ways:

  • Providing opportunities for deepening one’s own faith - Bible Study, book  discussions, Faith sharing, prayer experiences, Liturgy of the Hours.

  • Offering ongoing Faith learning (independent, communal and intergenerational) so their Catholic Faith can truly be the core from which they live - retreat days, evenings of reflection, Advent/Lenten missions, theological presentations.

  • Encouraging a more intentional awareness of their Baptismal call ~ a call to service as disciples of Jesus ~ connecting them with service opportunities where their gifts give life.
