Adult faith formation, by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study, must be "the central task of catechesis" becoming "the axis around which revolves the catechesis of childhood and adolescence as well as that of old age." This can be done specifically through developing in adults a better understanding of and participation in the full sacramental life of the Church. (Source: Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us).
St. Mary’s offers a variety of opportunities for adults to enrich their faith life through study and prayer on a weekly and seasonal basis such as:
- Weekly Scripture Study: Tuesdays at 1 pm or 7 pm Study readings of the week.
- Weekly Adult Formation Classes: Thursday afternoons or evenings (see bulletin and attachments below).
- Monthly DVD Night: Third Sunday of the Month, in the church after 5 pm Mass.
