Adult Faith Formation
We support and encourage current ministries involved in adult faith formation, and look for new ways to build our parish community. Bible 101, the Parish Library, guest speakers, Open House Sunday, retreats, and small faith communities.
The Adult Confirmation Preparation classes are for parishioners who are out of high school and who have been baptized and received First Communion, but who have yet to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation. Confirmation strengthens the graces we receive in Baptism and fills us with an even greater share of the Holy Spirit. This Sacrament completes our initiation into the Catholic Church.
Our parish will be hosting an adult confirmation session beginning on September 9th They include 10 sessions and a day of reflection with your sponsor. All sessions will be lead by Deacon Jerome Bettencourt. A link to the registration form is below along with the calendar, time and location. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. 2018-2019 Calendar - All Classes are from 3 – 4 p.m. in the Parish Hall: Rooms 5 and 6: January 27 (room 3), and February 24
