Adult Ministry Vision Statement

The vision for Adult Ministry is driven by six core beliefs:

  • We believe the Sunday Gospel and Eucharist provide the central focus for living our faith in our daily lives.

  • We believe in building strong households of faith.

  • We believe adults committed to learning and sharing their faith create strong households of faith.

  • We believe growing in Catholic understanding is a lifelong process.

  • We believe in forming the whole person, intellectually, spiritually, and relationally.

  • We believe we are called to continuing conversion toward the words and ways of Jesus Christ.

Lifelong Faith Formation Opportunities

In keeping with these six core beliefs, we offer a wide array of faith formation opportunities. I hope you will take advantage of these offerings as your personal commitment to lifelong growth in faith. See the weekly bulletin for our current Adult Ministry programs.
