Faith Studies

Adult Education and Formation

We welcome your participation in our study programs on the Catholic faith! These informal lecture series strive to advance personal spiritual enrichment and have been attended by both life-long Catholics and recent converts to the faith.

Our classes meet on Thursday evenings, and begin with an opening prayer, followed by a lecture (viewed on DVD) and a group discussion. We often use study guides to enhance our studies. Depending on the course or selected theme, program duration can range from 7-week courses to 24-week studies.

  • “Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible” by Jeff Cavins from Ascension Press (8 weeks)
