Adult Formation

What is God calling you to do?

Formation Opportunities

“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.

The Mystery of the Eucharist

Although the Eucharist appears to be simple bread and wine, it is actually the “source and summit” of the Christian life. Presence: The Mystery of the Eucharist explores the truth and beauty of Christ’sreal presence in the Eucharist, from its origins in Sacred Scripture, to its profound role in the life of the Church and her members. It is the crescendo of the entire story of salvation.

of Jesus Christ. He lays out three intriguing paths to holiness:
1. Finding the Center
2. Knowing You’re A Sinner
3. Realizing Your Life is Not About You

He also shares practical approaches to enhance the journey along these three paths. Untold Blessing: The Three Paths to Holiness provides an insightful guide as you walk “The Way.”

Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession

Forgiven: The Transforming Power of Confession explores the grace and healing offered in Confession and shows how this sacrament of mercy reveals the depth and bounty of God’s love. By looking at God’s revelation of his mercy in Scripture and making a step-by-step examination of the Rite itself, Forgiven communicates God’s invitation to each one of us to come experience his indescribable love in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

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 mornings at 8:00 am in the church.
