We are a community of Faithful Disciples who choose to seek the truth passionately, to love the Lord and others intensely, and to give freely of our gifts, because we believe that we are called to make the Kingdom of God visible in the world today.

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.
