Adult Ministry

The fundamental task of adult faith formation or catechesis is to form disciples of Jesus Christ, who will understand and live Christ’s teachings, and carry on his mission of proclaiming and building up the Kingdom of God. In addition, catechesis helps us to understand our experiences and make decisions in light of the Gospel. It helps us to understand how God is present, working, and praying within us and the community of believers.


Adult Scripture Study

The Adult Scripture Study experience includes reflections and prayers centered on the Sunday readings.  Our goal is to make a spiritual connection between Scripture and daily life.   Join us in person at the Diocesan Pastoral Center.
