Welcome to Adult Faith!
On-going Faith Formation is both the responsibility and challenge for every adult Catholic. Once we leave the Catholic School Program or the Parish Religious Education Program, we as adults can let our Faith Formation cease. We lose an awareness of the issues that face us as a church and the response to these issues by our church.
Weekend Eucharistic celebrations with their homilies are the first and most powerful ways of continuing our Adult Faith Formation. As we listen to the readings explained in light of our daily lives in the presence of our parish brothers and sisters, we continue to see where our church stands on so many important issues.
Parish missions and retreats are special times of prayer and reflection. We are able to take time and reflect where we are in our own personal faith journey. The Parish Adult Faith Formation Program offers opportunities for Bible study, small group prayer and sharing and classes on the History of the Church and many of topics of interest. These are held in the mornings and evenings.
The Faith Formation process continues and enables us to respond to the presence of the Lord in our life as mature adults and enjoy the blessings of that relationship.
As you embark on your faith journey, keep in mind the opportunities that St. Mary of Gostyn has to offer. If you have a suggestion for a program or would like to participate in a retreat, discussion group, please conact the Rectory, (630) 963-1063.
