Fr. Ken will be organizing adult faith formation for the 2022-2023 year. Please fill out THIS form if you are interested! Please see THIS letter from Fr. Ken, and stay tuned for more information! And check out THIS video of his homily from July 25 on his vision for faith formation.

The monthly program of faith formation for adults is aimed at providing opportunities for ongoing catechesis, Bible study, and liturgical formation. The goal is to foster an intentional community of love through a deeper knowledge and love of Christ and the Church. The typical program consists of an opening prayer (sometimes followed by a scripture reading), a short lecture/presentation, group discussions (or Q&A), and closing prayer with music. 

This group is for:

  1. Unbaptized persons seeking to enter the church
  2. Baptized non-Catholics seeking to enter the church
  3. Baptized Catholics who have not received First Communion or Confirmation
  4. Anyone who wants to learn more about the Catholic Faith can come to the meetings

Meeting Day:

2nd Saturday of the Month (for women)
3rd Saturday of the Month (for men)
Last Tuesday of the Month (for men and women)
Venue: School Cafeteria
