Adult Faith Formation
[Evangelization] is a task and mission which the vast and profound changes of present-day society make all the more urgent. Evangelizing is in fact the grace and vocation proper to the Church, her deepest identity. She exists in order to evangelize, that is to say, in order to preach and teach, to be the channel of the gift of grace, to reconcile sinners with God, and to perpetuate Christ's sacrifice in the Mass, which is the memorial of His death and glorious resurrection.
Blessed Pope Paul VI, Evangelii Nuntiandi
If you or any members of your family are looking to take the next step in growing more in our faith, we have many opportunities available throughout the year. Follow the links below for more information:
