Christian education,  or Christian Formation, is the lifelong process of growing in our relationship with God, self, others and all creation.  Every experience in our lives can provide us with the opportunity to express our faith; the challenge we face is recognizing these opportunities and learning ways to live a sometimes countercultural life in a secular world.

The parish strives to realize its goal as being a center for education, community and spiritual life, and has dedicated time and energy to providing a variety of learning opportunities that are open and accepting, so that we may explore and strengthen our faith.  The Committee for Adult Education and Spirituality makes educational and spiritual opportunities available and plentiful for all seeking greater knowledge and experience of their God, themselves, or their neighbors near and far.  Seminars and lectures are offered periodically, and are publicized in the bulletin and The Trumpet

The following groups provide opportunities to explore our faith more deeply.  Please contact the person(s) listed below if you would like further information.
