Confirming Faith for Adults

Are you an adult looking to renew your faith, a returning Catholic, a new parishioner, or a young adult who just moved into downtown Phoenix? Then join us for Confirming Faith for Adults a series to welcome and help adults grow in the Gift of Faith.  The aim of this series is to help those who participate in it to deepen their personal relationship with God, to develop a sense of belonging in a living Christian community, and to grow in membership in the Catholic Church.  Our session together will include community building, prayer and faith experiences, service/ministry witness and instruction.  This will not be a lecture course, but will be an active learning and faith sharing environment.
