Welcome to St Joseph's & St. Paul's Adult Faith Formation!!
Recognizing that all Catholics are called to continue our catechesis of our Catholic faith throughout our lifetime, always seeking too deepen our relationship with Christ, our parish provides several Faith Formation opportunities for parishioners of all ages.
Our 2017-2018 adult FF program focussed on the Eucharist and the Mass. Together we studied the history of the Mass, and the importance of the Eucharist - the Source and Summit of our Faith. Deacon John instructed us on the beauty and liturgy surrounding Eucharistic Adoration, and Father Simon lead us through a teaching mass - explaining the prayers and history behind the Catholic Mass. Recently, over 30 members of our parish took a pilgrimage to the diocese Eucharistic Congress at the Shrine of North American Martyrs in Auriesville, NY.
Our 2018-2019 program will focus on Encountering Jesus. We are planning one adult session in the fall (November) and another in the winter (February). Additionally, this year we have Advent and Lenten retreats.
Both our Men's and Women's Groups will be using the Turning Point Program from Dynamic Catholic. Following Pope Francis' call for all Catholics to seek a personal encounter with Jesus, Dr. Allen Hunt's interactive program takes us on a journey through the Gospel of John, and challenges each of us to encounter Jesus.
