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

Growing Your Faith: One Click Away
Too Busy for a weekly bible study? Have a challenging schedule? Wanting more from your faith but unable to fit opportunities into your schedule?
You are not alone. Living in our society these days means being increasingly busy, over-extended, and disjointed from what matters most: God, family & faith. To that end, our parish wants to provide you with a faith formation opportunity that comes to your own home, on your schedule for you and your loved ones to grow in the Catholic faith.
