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.

Lenten Guided Meditations

Scriptural Guided Meditations are a type of prayer form that calls upon our imagination.  Using our imagination, we place ourselves in the scripture passage and allow the Holy Spirit to help us enter into the presence of Jesus, whereby we open ourselves up to the possibility of transformation.  Join us for these virtual zoom prayer sessions.  Open to all parishioners.

Loss:  Lord, If Only You Had Been Here!
This healing prayer experience, “Lord, If Only You Had Been Here!” is based on the pain and grief experienced by Mary, Martha, and Jesus at the death of Lazarus (John 11:1-44).  It reminds us that Jesus, too, feels the anguish of loss, and he offers us his compassion and comfort in the midst of our suffering, no matter what its source.
