Ongoing Adult Formation
The Four Pillars of Our Faith: The Creed, The Sacraments, Life in Christ, Prayer
Are you a cradle Catholic, who wishes to learn more about the Faith into which you were born? Are you a convert, but would like to continue learning about the treasure chest you opened in RCIA? Please join us for our Four Pillars study this year!
The study is offered in 4 modules, one for each of the pillars, followed by a 5th module devoted to Marian consecration after Easter. The first 4 will be based on the brilliant "Symbolon" program, available from Formed.org. Study materials for each module will be available in booklet form, or participants may simply download the materials from the Symbolon pages of Formed.org.
Our parish has purchased the dynamic online course "Formed." "Formed" has been called a Catholic Netflix, offering a variety of movies, documentaries, and online courses, presenting our Faith in a compelling format.
Parishioners are welcome to register, free of charge, through our parish subscription, which may be accessed by using our code, nr1029 . Once in our subscription, an individual parishioner creates a user name and password (which cannot be our parish code).
