A vibrant faith community needs a “strong, complete, and systematic catechesis for all its members … adult faith formation, by which people consciously grow in the life of Christ through experience, reflection, prayer, and study must be the central task in this catechetical enterprise.” (from the document, Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops)
 
Adult Faith Formation programs include Bible Study Groups, Lenten Reflection Groups, Speaker Series, faith sharing and discussion groups, our annual Parish Mission and the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults). Scroll down for our calendar of events and spiritual opportunities.
Scripture Study : A Window into the Spirituality of Paul
 
The Little Rock Scripture Commentary and Study Guide provide a structure of weekly reading guiding us through the letters of St. Paul and the stories of his encounter with the risen Lord, his travels and teachings in the Acts of the Apostles.
After our individual study at home, we gather once a week to pray and hear the Word of God, to share our questions, insights and faith.
 
Wednesdays, April 11 through May 30  in the Parish Center.
Morning Group, 10am to 11:30am
Evening Group, 7pm to 8:30pm
