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.
