Adult Faith Formation

The Mass
Join us on Thursdays

Our Thursday Morning Study Group is viewing this series at 9:30am in room 103. All are welcome!

Walk through the Liturgy of the Mass with Bishop Barron and you’ll be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.

See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.

The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life.

Rediscover Jesus

Have you read the book?

Join us as we share our thoughts and insights about the first few chapters of Rediscover Jesus. Deacon Mike and Barb Lane will facilitate our next gathering on Sunday, October 21st after the 10:30am Mass. We will meet in room 105 for about an hour.

RCIA – Becoming Catholic
Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults

We would like to invite  anyone interested in learning more about the Catholic faith to come and discover what we believe as Catholics.  The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults or RCIA program explores the faith in a small group format.   Our RCIA program will begin September 19th. Classes are held every Wednesday evening from 7:00—9:00pm at the church.

The RCIA program is also for those who were baptized Catholic, but did not receive any or  all of the other Sacraments (Reconciliation, Eucharist, Confirmation) as a child.

Finally, for those of you who would just like a “refresher” course in what we believe as Catholics, you are welcome to join us!

Still wondering if this is something that you should take part in? Listen to this encouraging witness from two of our 2018 RCIA participants!
