Adult Faith Development

All Christians, indeed all humankind, enjoy a personal relationship with God and are on an individual journey to grow ever closer to him.  One of the best ways we can encounter God is through the fellow Christians with whom we journey.  Adult Faith Development fosters continual spiritual growth by offering small faith study groups where the common questions for life, faith, and God can be explored in a nurturing, supportive environment.  If you would like more information on becoming part of the coordinating team, please call the Parish Office at 837-3165.

St. Ferdinand Adult Faith Development Fall 2020 Session

Do you want to learn more about the Blessed Virgin Mary and how what we believe is rooted in Scripture? Then please join us in reading “Jesus and the Jewish Roots of Mary” by Brandt Pitre, PhD, an 8-chapter book that explains the Biblical context of what we believe about Mary.

We will be meeting both in person and via Zoom to discuss a chapter per week for 8 consecutive weeks in Duchesne Hall on Wednesdays at 7:00 pm from October 28th to December 23rd. We will not meet on Wednesday November 25th. Please contact Deacon Phil at or Paul Segura at to register for Zoom access.

The book is available on Amazon, Kindle, Apple Books, and Pauline Books. Please contact Deacon Phil if you cannot afford the book.

Please read the first chapter to prepare for the first session.
