Adult Faith Formation
Adult Faith formation is the process through which the adults of the parish they deepen their personal relationship with Jesus Christ. This process includes four areas of concentration: experience, reflection, prayer and study. The adult Faith formation team currently sponsor such programs as guest speakers, RCIA and scripture study . RCIA is a process through which a person may become a member of the Catholic Church. We also welcome anyone who wants to explore the Catholic faith. This year the sessions will begin on Thursday September 29 , meeting in Ben's Room from 630 to 8 PM . Scripture study meets Friday nights from 630 to 8 PM in Ben's room. We use the Collegeville Bible Studytudy series. This year, beginning September 30 , we will begin the study of the Gospel of Matthew. The cost for the book is $10. Donations will be gratefully accepted but not required. We also offer the text to those who want to study the Gospel of Matthew on their own. Please see Paul Riofski for the books.
