Nurturing our growth in faith is at the core of this ministry.  Bible studies, book studies, spiritual enrichment groups, lectures, monthly gatherings for women and men, and Advent and Lenten programs offer the opportunity to share and reflect upon our faith.

Adult faith enrichment is a multi-faceted, learning and living experience for Catholics that meshes education, spiritual growth, and the active practice of faith. Our Adult Faith Enrichment Ministry also offers a Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program.

Please check below for information on current, upcoming, and past Adult Faith Enrichment offerings and resources.

If you have any questions or need more information, please contact Kelly Meraw, Director of Pastoral Care.
