Adult Formation

As described in our parish's Core Values, we are people with inquiring minds and open hearts.  We know that spiritual growth happens over a lifetime and is a never-ending journey with as many questions as answers.  We also know that God's love and grace guides us every step of the way.  Here are our principal offerings of adult formation:
