Adults

The Church's catechetical mission aims to help the faithful of all ages to grow in both human and Christian maturity,
enriching the whole of life with the leaven of the Gospel.


Faith formation helps adults make "a conscious and firm decision to live the gift and choice of faith through membership in the Christian community."
                                      ~excerpted from Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us: A Pastoral Plan for Adult Faith Formation in the United States


Book Discussion

Can thoughtful reading adjust our thinking, inform our faith and assist us in talking from topics from different perspectives while really listening to an opposing view?
Using guided questions, we will discuss insights discovered in each book and explore how we are inspired and/or challenged.
Come to all sessions or just one or two.

Spiritual Direction is for anyone who is seeking a deeper connection with God.  The Director assists the individual in developing the skills needed to recognize the presence of God in their life.  A spiritual director is a companion who aids in listening for the movements of the Sacred and helps a person pay attention to God’s personal communication, respond, grow in intimacy with God, and live out the invitations that emerge from that relationship.

Recent Session:

Pilgrim People

Our most recent 7-week study was entitled “Second Corinthians” incorporating an Introductory session and 6 lessons.  It was held on
February 10 –  March 24, 2020
Monday evenings: 7:30 – 9:00 PM
Tuesday mornings: 10:00 – 11:30 AM

This 7-session study used the second half of the commentary used with First Corinthians (First and Second Corinthians by Maria Pascuzzi).  Maria A. Pascuzzi, CSJ, STD, teaches Scripture at the University of San Diego. She has a Liscentiate in Sacred Scripture from the Pontifical Biblical Institute and her Doctorate in Sacred Theology is from the Gregorian University.

Come to know the forceful but loving character of Paul, one of the best known figures in the early Church.  No other letter from Paul is so revealing of Paul's personality.  Paul likens the ministry of Apostles as that of being ambassadors of God whose message is one of reconciliation.  Arguing from his own experience of discipleship and ministry, Paul continues to promote unity in a divided and confused Corinth by reflecting on his own weaknesses as an opportunity to find strength in Christ.  He calls the Corinthians to generosity in care for the poor who live outside their own community.

There was a $30 materials fee ($22 for First Corinthians students) which was paid the 1st day of class. Cash or check accepted.
