Faith Formation

RCIA/Adult Faith Formation

Are you interested in deepening your relationship with Jesus Christ through the Catholic faith? Catholic Inquiry sessions take place year round. Wherever you are on your journey, we welcome your questions and invite you to join in community with others who are also exploring Catholicism. In September, inquiry sessions will begin meeting on Thursday evenings at 7 PM.

Adult Faith Formation:

We have numerous opportunities for continued adult formation. Please check the website and bulletin boards for more information. If you have questions, please contact the Faith Formation Office.

Domestic Discipleship

Domestic Discipleship provides families of all ages a time and place to engage in their faith with other families. Families will gather for a monthly workshop on the second Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:30 pm. This workshop will include a potluck meal, teachings, discussions, and hands on activities. These workshops will help parishioners to understand their faith better and to deepen your relationship with Christ. As a community, families will have time to pray and learn about our faith while being present with each other. This year, we will be using the new Family of Faith Program from Sophia Institute Press. It is a supplement for regular Faith Formation classes, OLC School families, and families who choose to home school their children. For those families working at home with their children, materials from the Family of Faith program will be sent home. For the 2019-20 year, Domestic Discipleship will focus on the Creed and what we as Catholics profess to believe. The monthly themes are:
  • October: Introduction to Domestic Discipleship & the Role of Parents
  • November: What is Faith, Who is God?
  • January: The Immaculate Conception & Incarnation
  • February: Who is Jesus Christ & the Paschal Mystery
  • March: The Holy Spirit and the Church
  • April: The Communion of Saints
  • May: The Way of the Creed

For All Volunteers

VIRTUS Training—Protecting God’s Children:

This training session only needs to be taken once and is good for any area you may want to volunteer with our youth. This includes youth ministry volunteers, chaperones for retreats, small group leaders, catechists, nursery workers, coaches and much more. Sessions are offered on a regular basis at various parishes in the diocese. For more information go to www.virtus.org or contact the Faith Formation office.
