Adult Enrichment

(Now paired with Family Faith!)

This year our Adult Formation participants and our Family Faith Adults will be coming together in a new and sensational way!  We will be casting our nets to include ALL adults of the parish by creating a unified approach to living out our Catholic Faith!  Please note: In order to provide the same content for all adults of the parish, an identical presentation will be offered on the Sunday morning prior to Family Faith between the Masses (9:30-10:30 AM).  I encourage you to take advantage of this opportunity if you will be unable to attend the Family Faith evenings.  Adults may choose to attend either Sunday Morning Sessions in Sippel Hall from 9:30 to 10:30 or Monday evening sessions beginning with an optional meal in our downstairs Seton Hall (Please RSVP if you are interested in the meal) and then the presentation in our Church from 6:15 to 7:15 p.m.

2017-2018 Adult Enrichment Calendar of Events (coming soon)

Adult Enrichment Speaker Series:  Finding Purpose!  (download the flier here)
This year’s series for adults is titled: “FINDING PURPOSE.” We’ll be exploring the habits of discipleship and discovering how they impact our personal lives, our family lives, our work lives, and our interactions with the entire world—ultimately helping us to live a life of purpose.

Kick off!
This Year our Speaker Series begins Sunday October 8 or Monday October 9 with Andre Lesperance of the Evangelical Catholic.  Andre will be presenting a three part series that will focus on building “Apprenticeships in Prayer.”  This would be done through a 30 -45 minute presentation with small discussion group interaction on deepening or building each person’s individual relationship with Jesus in three areas:

    1. Who is Jesus for each person and how can we form and continually deepen our own personal relationship with him?  (October 8 or 9)
    2. Interpersonal relationship how relating to others in marriage, children, family etc… deepens our relationship with Jesus. (November 12 or 13)
    3. Real life: how to live out the life of Catholic Christian in the world we live in today. (January 7 or 8)

Other sessions throughout the year include:

  • February 11 or 12 – Ready, Set, LENT!!!: Creating your personal retreat for Lent. (Lent begins on Ash Wednesday – February 14)
  • March 11 or 12 – Finding Purpose
  • April 8 or 9 – Finding Purpose

Jesus – A Pilgrimage by James Martin, SJ
