Adult Formation

What is God calling you to do?

“I invite all Christians, everywhere, at this very moment, to a renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ. Or at least an openness to letting him encounter them; I ask all of you to do this unfailingly each day.”  ~ Pope Francis, The Joy of the Gospel

Our adult formation offerings are intended to bring us into a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and his Church; this is the basis of discipleship. How can we love someone we don’t know? Knowledge of the faith allows us to walk more intimately with the Lord and lovingly articulate the faith to others. We invite you to join us as we encounter the Lord and his Church through a variety of spiritual courses.

Women’s Bible

In his response to the United Nations gathering of women in June of 1995, St. John Paul II penned “A Letter to Women.” In this groundbreaking letter he thanked women for their work in the world and articulated a particular “feminine genius” that is diverse in action but unified in essence. He encouraged women to be active in the world and to deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ, for in this relationship they will be given the strength to do their work. Pope Francis too calls for an increase study of the “theology of women.”

Our Bible study is primarily meant to deepen a woman’s relationship with the Lord and thus give clarity and strength in her call to be a disciple. In addition, we look at Scripture using the historical-critical method of study; who the characters are, what Jesus is really saying, where the events are taking place and why. All women are welcome!

Bible studies meet Thursday mornings following 9:15am Mass in Kohler Hall.

The fathers of St. Joseph is a confraternity of men who follow the timeless wisdom and example of the man who was father to the Son and son of the Father. With St. Joseph as our leader, each father strives to become as he became – an icon of God the Father. As God the Father entrusted His Son to St. Joseph’s care, we also strive to entrust ourselves as children, who are fathers, to this father who will teach us to father, and lead us to the Father. This way of fatherhood is called Joseph’s Way – The Call to Fatherly Greatness. Join us on this journey to discover the power of authentic fatherhood.

Join us on this journey every other Saturday morning at 8:00 am in the church. All men welcome!
