Today's Reading
12th Sunday in Ordinary Time


Faith is a constant gift from God. It is offered to us from before our birth over and over again in our lives. Faith is not something we acquire on our own initiative, but rather, it grows and deepens as we experience life. The adult learning programs such as you see below are simply tools to help us respond to God’s gift of faith. All offer opportunities to journey with one another in faith.

Studies and Speakers

Grow in your faith through Bible studies, speakers, and workshops on a variety of topics.

Marriage Enrichment Opportunities

Keep your marriage alive and healthy.

Theology Days

Quarterly Adult Education opportunities presented by Saint John’s School of Theology-Seminary.

Interfaith Forums

Gain understanding of Christian, Jewish, and Muslim faith traditions.

Faith Sharing Groups

Nourish your spirituality and deepen your faith through sharing with others.

Members celebrate becoming Catholic with a dinner. The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a process of study, exploration, faith sharing, and faith formation with specific liturgical rites. Seekers and inquirers are non-baptized adults who desire to be fully initiated into the Roman Catholic Church and/or baptized adult Christians who desire full communion in the Roman Catholic Church.
