Another Year, More Opportunities to Strengthen Your Faith
Through Our Adult Faith Formation Program

The Adult Faith Formation Committee is pleased to announce that we will focus our offerings for 2015/2016 on the following theme: Returning to the Roots of Our Catholic Faith. Our speakers will focus on Church history and the great saints. In addition, in honor of Pope Francis's visit to our region, our book club will begin the year with a discussion of the Pope's latest book.

You will note that our first program is scheduled for September 27, the weekend when the Pope will be in Philadelphia. For those of you who plan to watch the Mass on television, rather than travel to Philadelphia, rest assured that the showing of the Catholicism DVD will finish in plenty of time to allow you to return home to catch this historic event.

Watch for our posters in the church and Family Center as well as save-the-date announcements in the bulletin and program details on this website.

We look forward to seeing you this fall!
