Adult Spirituality and Faith Formation Program

Rooted in our Catholic faith and guided by our Ignatian tradition, the Adult Spirituality and Faith Formation Program seeks to provide opportunities for adults to grow deeper in their relationship with God through education, meaningful prayer and fellowship.
 
"Like St. Ignatius, we are pilgrims on a journey. We never fully arrive at our destination in this life, for daily God is inviting us into a deeper and deeper relationship. Let us be attentive to God's invitations, attentive to the ways the spirit is at work in our lives, and walk confidently together as a community on this journey of faith."
–Douglas Gleber
