Adult Faith Formation
St. Mary Parish offers the following adult education opportunities in the 2020-2021 academic year:
Formed: the Catholic Faith on Demand. Log on to www.stmarygarner.formed.org to take advantage of free programs on faith formation, bible studies, spiritually enriching studies, current topics, and Advent and Lent programs. There are movies, documentaries, books, and resources for children and youth too!
Interested in Exploring the Catholic Faith? Searching for a spiritual home? Do you ever ask yourself:
- Is there more for me than work, home, and my “to do” list?
- What am I looking for in life?
- How can I better know God and his plan for my life?
- How can I know if God loves me?
If you are asking these questions, or questions like them, you are welcome to find out more about what it means to be Catholic at St. Mary parish. At our regular Inquiry gatherings – no strings attached! – we will explore these and other topics.
This invitation is extended to:
- anyone who has been baptized in another denomination but is interested in learning about the Catholic faith
- anyone who has never been baptized or affiliated with any church and has a desire to be a member of a church community
- any non-active Catholic who has been away from the Church and would like to receive Confirmation and Eucharist.
