Adult Faith Formation

Ministry Coordinator

What we do.  Who we are.


~ Bible Studies

~ Reflection Opportunities

~ Lenten Adult Education Series

~ Pre-Baptismal class

~ Parish Mission

~ Parent Education

~ Sacramental Preparation


This year we hope to implement a volunteer team to help facilitate and grow our excellent programs.


Our Sacramental Preparation program is designed to

empower the parent as the primary catechist of their child and provide ways to connect and collaborate with the Faith Formation team and Pastors.


We offer a pre-baptismal class.  After Baptism,  parents will be receive Parent Letters  every six months, to age 3

to offer spiritual support and guidance as they raise their young children.


Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults RCIA


Come and See!!!  Are you or someone you know thinking about learning more about the Catholic Church? Perhaps, there is one Catholic parent in your family, or a friend, neighbor or a co-worker?  Begin by offering support and encouragement.


We have implemented a year round RCIA process which means we welcome inquiries whenever God calls and leads them to us.


The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is a

carefully designed process for persons:


~ Never Baptized

~ Baptized in another faith but interested in Catholicism

~ Baptized Catholic but not presently  involved in Church life.
