Faith Formation
Programs

Our adult faith formation ministry must engage the particular needs and interests of the adults in each local community. To be faithful and effective it will offer, over time, a comprehensive and systematic presentation and exploration of the core elements of Catholic faith and practice—a complete initiation into a Catholic way of life. It will do so in a way that is accessible to adults and relates to their life experiences, helping them to form a Christian conscience and to live their lives in the world as faithful disciples of Jesus.

This integration of actual life experience, diverse adult learning needs, the study of Scripture, and the teaching of the Church's tradition will create a vibrant learning environment. It will also challenge the creativity of those who establish the direction, plan the content, and provide programs of adult faith formation. 

WHAT IS FAITH FORMATION?

BIBLE STUDIES

We study the Bible because we want to become disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ. In Isaiah 55:11, God says that His word never returns to Him empty, and that it will always accomplish His purpose. God transforms lives through His Word! Our classes are designed to be comfortable and caring places where every person can become confident in studying the Bible. Whether you are new to Bible study or if you have been studying the Bible for many years, we’ll help you learn, grow in faith in Jesus Christ and meet others in your community who share the same desire.

We look forward to meeting you!

BOOK CLUB

What can be better that to find God in the everyday life stories of the people that have believed in him. With a creative though full of faith and hope selection of books, be part of our club meeting once a month.
