Adult Formation

The mission of Adult Faith Formation is to make Jesus Christ known and loved in our time.  Adult Faith formation exists to impart the authentic teaching, traditions, and doctrines of the Catholic Church to assist individuals in better understanding of and living the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, and to help nurture the transformation and growth of faith in the lives of individuals.

Adult Faith Formation nurtures and helps develop the spiritual and catechetical growth of our adult faith community by encouraging adults to deepen their experience of God in their daily life.

Adult Faith Formation provides adult parishioners with a variety of opportunities to study scripture, share faith, deepen their understanding of the doctrines of faith, through adult formation, catechetical, and scriptural programs, and information and discussion sessions, by utilizing various multi media resources.

Adult Religious Education Session to begin at St Anthony Church
Are you ready to become a Catholic or are you missing a Sacrament? Would you like to rejuvenate your understanding of the Catholic Faith?
Becoming Catholic is one of life’s most profound and joyous experiences. Some are blessed enough to receive this great gift while they are infants, while others enter the Catholic fold when they are older children or adults. A person is brought into full communion with the Catholic Church through reception of the three Sacraments of Christian Initiation—Baptism, Confirmation, and the Holy Eucharist.
If you wish to refresh your understanding of the Roman Catholic Faith or receive the Sacraments of Christian Initiation, here is your opportunity!

  • Adults 18 and older are invited to meet in the Parish Center from 7 to 9 Thursday, September 6, 2018  to begin their journey.
  • Sessions will occur every other week thereafter. Sacraments may be conferred at the Easter Vigil Mass 2019.
  • The course outline will be: A tour of the Church, use of the Missalette, Introduction to the Gospels; a study of the Christmas stories, a look at the Liturgical Year, and an examination of the Seven Sacraments of the Church.
