Adult Faith Formation

Faith formation does not end with Confirmation! It is a time for new beginnings and exploring the faith through an adult perspective. There is always something to learn and do to help us grow in relationship with God and others.  Check out our Evening of Worship and Outreach pages for more ways to grow in faith.

SMALL GROUP OPPORTUNITIES

 

The Next Step (Men’s Prayer Group)  – Tuesday’s 6:00 – 7:15 AM. MEN OF THE PARISH – Do you come to Mass on Sunday and leave thinking there must be something more? Does life seem to be going smoothly, yet you still feel you do not have it all figured out? Do you question how God fits into that plan? Maybe what you need is the opportunity to meet with other men on a weekly basis. Join us at THE NEXT STEP which meets every Tuesday morning from 6 AM – 7:20 AM in the church lounge. It may be just what you need and what God wants for your life. Questions – contact David Brady @ 581-1050 or email him.

Afternoon Faith Sharing – Wednesday’s 1:00-2:30PM for an afternoon of faith sharing. This very laid back group chooses from week to week what we will do for the upcoming weeks. In the past we have done bible studies, video programs, movies, and book discussions.  This coming year we will be using the resources on Formed.org for those that do not have internet access. Remember, we are all learners and teachers at the same time. We each have our own unique faith and life experiences to bring to the group. We follow the school schedule so this is a great opportunity to share and learn while the children are in school.

DYI Small Groups– Whenever, where ever you want. Create your own small group from family or friends. If you would like to form a group and need help getting members, let us know. We can advertise in the bulletin. The Religious Education office has sets of books and video study programs to check out for your small group. We also have great resources for you to use on Formed.org. Check out the Formed tab in  this website for more information. Contact the Religious Education Office if you need help accesseing the online workbooks and study guides.
