Adult Faith Formation
"God 'desires all... to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth': that is, of Christ Jesus. Christ must be proclaimed to all nations and individuals, so that this revelation may reach to the ends of the earth: God graciously arranged that the things he had once revealed for the salvation of all peoples should remain in their entirety, throughout the ages, and be transmitted to all generations." - Catechism of the Catholic Church no. 74

Bible Study – Beginning in September, continuing each Wednesday @ 7pm – Look forward to an in-depth study of the scriptures. Topics vary and are voted upon by those present at the previous study. Click to learn more about our Bible studies.
Companions in Christ – Perhaps one of the greatest gifts to your own life of faith is committing to an adult small group faith sharing gathering. At St. Thomas these are called ‘Companions in Christ’ groups, and consist of weekly meetings based on reflecting and praying with the Sunday Scriptures. Contact Nick Coffman in the parish office if you have interest in joining a group.
