Adult Faith Formation

Woman with Bible

The Adult Faith Formation Program plans and implements opportunities to help adult parishioners deepen their knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith. Through these opportunities, parishioners can experience a deepening in their faith and encounter with God and neighbor.


The goal of the Adult Faith Formation Program is to assist in the whole formation of body, mind and spirit. Current programs for individuals and groups include catechesis, scripture (Bible) study, marriage and family enrichment, book discussions, spiritual direction, evangelization, and retreats and pilgrimages.


Parishioners are encouraged to contact the Religious Ed Office  717-235-2156        for more information and if they would like to host an organized small group.
