Adult Faith Formation


Adult Faith Formation is the educational mission of our church.

We provide opportunities for adults to deepen their understanding and appreciation of our Catholic faith, by offering programs such as: "Why Catholic?", "Living the Eucharist", Bible Studies, "Little Books on Advent/Lent/Easter" and planning whole community catechesis events. We focus on the entire church community offering programs within bilingual context.

We encourage parishioners to make suggestions for adult faith programs that will enable all to grow in their faith. We invited adults to attend programs and give honest evaluations to help us cultivate our plan. 

We all come to this community with experiences from other churches, you are welcome to join our committee to help us expand and produce quality curriculum. National and local speakers enhance our knowledge and help us deepen our faith, please offer contact information or sponsor a speaker. Contact Jill St. Yves, DRE for more information 865-986-9885.
