Adults

Adult Faith Alive!

We strive to make faith come alive in the hearts of adults by making them feel valued, celebrating their diversity, and staying relevant to their lives.

We support life-long learning and seek to provide opportunities for all to grow in their faith. Some things we offer include:

    • Guest speakers on the 2nd Sunday of each month after the 10:30am Mass in the social hall
    • Fall / Spring one day retreats
    • Parent speakers / resources
    • Bible classes
    • Book discussions
