Adult Faith Formation encompasses programs designed for adult learning of all ages, such as workshops and instruction on various topics, evenings or days of reflection, small sharing groups, Scripture study groups and retreat opportunities. Its focus includes family activities such as family meals at the parish, family prayer experiences, pilgrimages and family outings. For those adults who are coming into the faith, the R.C.I.A. (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) program is available. The "Landings" program is offered for those who have been away from the church or the sacraments for any length of time and are considering a return. (See further information on these two programs in this directory.)
Our parish Religious Education Program includes CCD, sacramental preparation for children, family retreats for those who are preparing to receive the sacraments of Penance and Confirmation, evenings or days of reflection, workshops, yearly mission and instruction on our faith by parish staff or assigned speakers. For those who are coming into the faith, we have the R.C.I.A. program (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults) under the direction of Msgr. Vance. The responsibility of assisting in the direction of Adult Education Program is Sharon Otto, D.R.E. (Director of Religious Education).
Send your kids on a roaring adventure! At Roar VBS, kids discover that even though life gets wild, God is good. Roar is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life. (Since everything is hands-on, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe shoes.)
Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings®. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot! Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project, through a program called Operation Kid-to-KidTM, that will provide nutrition and good health opportunities to moms and babies in Zambia, Africa.
