Adult Faith Formation

We are called to have a deep and personal relationship with Jesus Christ. By reading, meditating, discussing and sharing His Word we can build and enrich our relationship with Him.

Our Adult Faith Formation opportunities include Bible Studies, Book Discussions, Movie Nights, Prayer Groups, Guest Speakers and Retreats. Our Bible Studies include a Study Guide, Small Group Discussions and DVD presentations. We offer Studies year round with both daytime and evening options. If you would like more information on upcoming studies or have any questions, please let us know. All are welcome! Let us learn and grow together!


Current & Upcoming Studies

Learn how the Prophets speak to us today, shed light on our faith and how their words draw us closer to God. (Workbook, Discussion, DVD)

Oremus: A Guide to Catholic Prayer

September 16th - November 13th

Do you find it easy to pray? Is prayer an integral part of your day? Do you hear God’s voice in your daily life, and know how to respond accordingly? In Scripture we read of profound interactions people have with God. We hear of Saints who seemed to have a direct line to Him. We may feel this is beyond our reach. We can feel frustrated as we struggle to calm our minds and find even a few minutes to set aside to pray. In our busy lives prayer is seen as a luxury, when in reality it is at the foundation of a healthy spiritual life. The good news is you can overcome these difficulties. It is easier than you might think! (Workbook, Discussion, DVD)
