ADULT FAITH FORMATION
Adult Faith Formation
Adult Faith Formation encourages parishioners to consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer and study. Adult Faith Formation provides adults with the opportunity to grow spiritually, intellectually and faithfully through a variety of programs. The Adult Faith Formation ministry seeks to help adults better understand the faith of the Church, as well as its practical application in their lives. Since adults have a right and a duty to bring to maturity the seed of faith sewn in them by God, Adult Faith Formation seeks to provide parishioners with spiritual and enrichment opportunities so that they may grow in their Christian life.

FAMILIA For Men
FAMILIA for men is a Catholic program committed to strengthening all families by helping men (and women) to live their vocation to marriage and parenthood in all its fullness. Husbands (with young children) come together as a small Christian community to study and pray as they nurture their vocations of husband and father. Using the tools and deeper understanding of the Catholic faith which they receive in Familia, they learn to integrate the Gospel and Church teachings into their busy lives. The family is the heart of our society. This is where God has made known his presence in the most unique and unrepeatable way. Familia can help equip you with practical tools that will enable you to become a champion for your family. Familia exists for the family, that they might live their mission through: stronger marriages, effective communication between spouses and children, trust in the dignity of each person, and lifestyles and decisions which bring unity and elevate the family. FAMILIA will offer this Catholic program for men in the fall. For more information, please contact Michael Pigg at firstname.lastname@example.org, Davis Brister at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
