Adult Education

Opportunities for continuing enlightenment in our Catholic faith are periodically presented including, book studies, scripture study, lecture series, and discussion groups on current religious and social topics. Programs are presented by the parish and Archdiocese and feature parish priests and visiting lay and clerical experts. See weekly bulletin for specific program announcements.

Adult Confirmation

Adult Confirmation Preparation programs are offered through different parishes in our Archdiocease for individuals who are at least 18 years old, have already been baptized and have received First Communion. Contact the Parish office for details.

Bible Study

A lectionary based scripture study group meets on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. from mid September through Pentecost. The group uses "At Home With The Word" to reflect on the upcoming weekend scriptures. All are welcome.

Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is an ancient Christian practice of prayer and scripture reading intended to help us enter deeply into the presence of God and to increase our knowledge of God's Word.  A Lectio session is offered once a month on the first Monday mornings at 10:30 a.m. in the Choir Room. All are welcome.

Lectio Divina is simply a method that enables us to experience the Living Christ. He is always in our midst, but we are so busy and often run on sensory overload that we feel estranged from him and do not hear his voice. Lectio Divina allows us to find Jesus in his Word, in the silence and in our lives. When we reconnect with the Lord by listening to him, our lives take on new power and meaning.
