Adult Faith Formation

Adult Faith Formation Team

The AFFT (Adult Faith Formation Team) has as its primary focus adult faith formation and education. They are more than just volunteers; they are stewards who freely share their God-given talents to help draw out from this community of faith a greater return to the Lord. Their purpose is to be interactive with the parish. Their statement of intent: Striving under the direction of the Holy Spirit, we present regular and enriching opportunities for the deepening renewal and growth of individual as well as community spirituality for our parish family.

For in him, we live and move and have our being. —Acts 17:28

 

Adult Faith Formation - SGM Summer 2021

Evening Prayer + Speaker (3rd Wednesday)

On the third Wednesday of each month, parishioners gather to pray Evening Vespers, starting at 7 PM. Directly after Vespers, various outstanding speakers give a talk on a topic that will grow our Catholic Faith. The evening is typically over by 8 PM. The schedule of upcoming Vespers + Speaker services is:

  • June 16, 7 PM in the gym: Father Anthony Gerber on “The Most-Important yet Most-Forgotten Spiritual Book of the 20th Century”
  • July 21, 7 PM in the gym: Father David Skillman on “Catholic Vocabulary as part of the Faith”
  • August 18, 7 PM in the gym: John Powers on “The Importance of Spiritual Reading”

Video and Discussion Series (Saturday morning)

School may be out for the summer, but the opportunity to learn more about our Faith – and strengthen our faith! – is not on vacation! Join fellow parishioners on three Saturday mornings to watch and discuss videos on key tenets of the Catholic Faith. Father Skillman will lead sessions on the following topics, using the Symbolon material from Formed.org:

  • June 19: The Eucharist
  • July 17: Why Do I Need the Church
  • August 21: Mary and the Saints

Each session will start at 10:00 AM in Liguori Hall, and will last approximately an hour. Plan now to join fellow parishioners for an enjoyable hour of growth in faith and fellowship for one day each month over the summer!
