Adult Faith Formation
Adult faith formation is an indispensable part of evangelization. Those who wish to evangelize, must first commit themselves to growth and maturity in their own life of faith so that the truth they communicate remains authentic and convincing, rooted and grounded in Christ (Eph 3:17).

Drop-in Bible Study
Whether you’ve been part of a study group already or this is your first time… you are WELCOME! Come join us on Fridays after the 9 AM Mass (~ 9:45 AM) to reflect on the Scriptures. Sessions will last about an hour.
Drop-in Bible Study starts Friday, July 12th.
Bishop Robert Barron’s THE MASS
Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately jointed with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.
These 7 sessions will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life. The first session is Thursday, July 11th from 10 to 11:30 AM. Contact the parish office by July 1st to pre-register (required). Additional opportunities to participate in this study happen throughout the year.
Pathways Through Scripture Bible Study
Pathways is a four-year intensive Bible study course in which every book of the Bible is read and discussed. We use materials from the Catholic Biblical School Program (Paulist Press), but additional resources may be incorporated based on the biblical book studied.
The schedule is as follows:
Year One - Old Testament Foundations (Genesis through Kings)
Year Two - New Testament Foundations (Gospels of Mark, Luke and John; Letters of Paul; Revelation)
Year Three - Old Testament Continued (The Prophets; Chronicles; Psalms and Proverbs)
Year Four - Old and New Testaments Concluded (Wisdom Literature; Gospel of Matthew; Catholic Epistles; Deuterocanonical Books; Hebrews)
Weekly sessions are offered based on a school-year model, and each class lasts approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours.
Not every year of the study is offered continuously; please contact Debbie Adams for information on current sessions being offered.
Adult confirmation classes are offered yearly as needed to baptized Catholics (age 19 or older) who have received First Eucharist but have not yet been confirmed. Contact the parish office at 360-687-4515 for more information.
