Adult Faith Formation Survey

The Adult Faith Formation Committee strives to give parishioners opportunities to learn about their faith and enrich their spiritual lives in the midst of today's secular society, which provides little room for the deepening of a fully formed adult faith. Since Msgr. Rebman founded the committee in 2006, we have presented more than 90 programs exploring Scripture, Church history, the lives of saints, and other faith-based topics.

We are asking for your help in identifying the topics that most interest you and meet your spiritual needs as adult Catholics.

Summer of Saints

Our parish does not offer formal adult faith formation programs from May through August. Once again, however, we will publish columns about well-known and not-so-well-known saints to pique your curiosity and direct your private reading.

Schedule for 2017


September 18, Monday, 12:45 to 2 p.m.
Book Club
Catholics in America
by Russell Shaw

Please join us on Monday, September 18 from 12:45pm to 2:00 pm in the Family Center for a discussion of "Catholics in America -- Religious Identity and Cultural Assimilation From John Carroll to Flannery O'Connor".

This book is a collection of popularly written profiles of some of the leading figures in American Catholic history, including Archbishop John Carroll, Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, Orestes Brownson, Cardinal James Gibbons, Al Smith, Dorothy Day, Cardinal Francis Spellman, President John F. Kennedy, and others. More than a historical survey of prominent personalities,Catholics in America explores the ongoing, often controversial, effort of Catholics to work out their identity in a secular, and sometimes hostile, society.

The oldest question in the history of the Catholic Church in the United States may be this: "Is it possible to be a good Catholic and a good American?" The variety of answers given in this book demonstrates that the question is timelier now than ever before.

If you plan to attend, please click this link to register. We look forward to seeing you.

October 9, 16, 23, 30 and November 6, 13; Mondays, 10:30-12:00 p.m.
Bible Study
The Book of Revelations
presented by Father Leonard Klein

The Book of Revelation has through the history of the Church contributed both to undue confusion and undue certainty. Too often the central message of the victory of Christ is lost.

Fr. Leonard Klein will lead a course looking at the complex symbolism and the simple announcement of the Gospel that make up the message of the last book of the Bible.

If you plan to attend, please click this link to register. We look forward to seeing you.
