Adults

As a faith community committed to growing as intentional disciples, we realize the compelling need to engage in lifelong faith formation.  Whether this journey began for you as an infant and has remained strong ever since, or if you have turned from a vibrant living of your faith by consciously leaving the Catholic Church or simply drifting away, or if you are now experiencing an inner pull to become acquainted and more knowledgeable of the Catholic faith for the first time, you are welcome here. We seek to provide opportunities and support to meet your needs wherever you are.

 

New Offerings for Adults 

     “Committed” | St. Francis Room

Faith Formation using the Symbolon DVD Series. We will explore the Catholic faith, followed by discussion and reflection. This session will be offered on Sunday mornings at 9:30am – 10:45am, resuming in the fall of 2016.

  • Who were Baptized in another Christian Church
  • Who were Baptized in the Catholic Church but have not  received First Communion or  been Confirmed
  • Who want to update their understanding of the Faith.

ACTS Retreats

ACTS retreats are structured on the foundation of Adoration, Community, Theology and Service. Parishioners come together to experience how their daily lives are fundamentally impacted by the Word and Sacraments of our faith. Through a weekend retreat (men’s and women’s) and through small faith communities, parishioners are led to live their faith more intentionally on a personal and community level.

 

Men’s Retreat: November 2-5, 2017 (begins on Thursday evening and ends on Sunday afternoon)

Women’s Retreat: March 30-April 2, 2017 (begins on Thursday evening & ends on Sunday afternoon)

Ongoing Opportunities to Grow as Intentional Disciples:

Life as an intentional disciple is rooted in an experience of God’s goodness and love that leads one to desire an ever deepening relationship with Jesus. Consider how you can engage in growing in your faith through these opportunities or other ways.

Bible Studies

One of the clearest ways God desires to speak to us is through His revealed Word in the Sacred Scriptures.  These gatherings focus on the Scripture readings of the upcoming Sunday.

Men’s Night

Let’s keep the joy of the Easter season alive by joining together for our next Men’s Night on Saturday, May 13 — 7-9 pm in the St. Francis Room.  We will hear a wonderful talk by Dr. Scott Hahn called The Treasure of our Soul.  Dr. Hahn is a renowned Catholic author and speaker and is also on the faculty at Franciscan University of Steubenville.  We will hear Dr. Hahn’s insight about the beautiful gift we have been given in the Creed, including its history and the important role it plays as a continual reminder of the key elements of our faith.  As men, we must be mindful of our role in proclaiming and living our faith boldly and confidently, especially in the secular culture that surrounds us, as we lead others to the Lord in the way God desires for each of us.  Remember, Men’s Night is for all men, so bring a friend and enjoy appetizers, drinks and plenty of fellowship as always.   Also, save the date . . . the following Men’s Night is Saturday, June 10 —  7-9pm.  Speaker TBA.  Questions?  Email to Ed Gillig, Eric Zatko or  Paul Figliomeni at lfmensnight@gmail.com.
