Adult Formation is a multifaceted approach to help parishioners reignite and refresh their faith and deepen their understanding of our Catholic Faith. Through the years some of us may have forgotten or lost what we were taught through our formal teaching years. This program helps parishioners reconnect and continue their faith journey through guest speakers, movies, books, and the Formed website and more. Faith is nurtured and Evangelization is brought to the forefront of our thoughts and expressions. How better to live the message of Christ than to spread His message of salvation and to reach and teach each other.
All families, all ages are invited to attend Parish Adoration on the first Saturday of every month starting between 8:30 AM- 9:00 AM in the church. Our first Saturday is October 6th. Please note this includes children of all ages, grandparents, singles, and married couples. Join us for donuts in the St. Francis Room after Adoration.
Theology on Tap at St. Alphonsus
Sunday, October 14th at 7 PM in the Multi-Purpose Building
Drinking Good Spirit(s) with guest speaker Stephanie Clouatre Davis
Spirit(s): both holy and wholly intoxicating! Good spirits are the elixir of a healthy and holy life, but how to discern well what is truly good? St. Ignatius of Loyola left behind useful tools to help us discern the good spirits of our daily life in his Spiritual Exercises. Join us as we drink deeply and gather tools to live holy lives with good spirits!
This will be the first of FOUR Theology on Tap lectures held at St. Alphonsus. Check here for details on future talks.
