ABOUT ADULT FAITH FORMATION:

Faith Sharing Groups

Join a small faith-sharing group for six to eight weeks on two different occasions throughout the year (one fall and one spring) to explore the significance of your Catholic Faith, grow into a deeper intimacy with Christ, and connect with your parish family.  Each 1 1/2 hour session will include shared prayer, a faith conversation, and application to daily life. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for the registration forms.

Adults Exploring the Catechism

A paragraph-by-paragraph study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Participants learn about the teachings of the Church by reading sections of the Catechism and discussing its meaning. Facilitated by Joe Fisher. Participants receive a paperback copy of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

Sundays at 10:30 a.m.

Becoming Catholic

The Rite of Christian Initiation is a faith conversion process. Unbaptized adults wishing to become Catholic begin their journey with a time of inquiry. During the catechumenate phase of their preparation, participants are dismissed from Mass after the Homily to meditate on the Scripture readings with the RCIA team. Sponsors join the group for the catechetical sessions, which focus on teachings and particular issues in the Catholic Church. During Lent the participants begin more intense spiritual preparation, including a retreat, for their upcoming celebration of Baptism, Confirmation and First Communion. The initiation sacraments are most generally celebrated at the Easter Vigil (Holy Saturday) and followed by a parish reception. Our Director of Lifelong Faith Formation and  team of catechists direct the process. Call the parish office if you would be interested in taking part in this process as a candidate, sponsor or catechist.

Book Clubs

Participants select a Catholic book to read and discuss at monthly gatherings. Participants purchase their own books or check them out of the library. The Ave Marie Book Club meets in the parish library at 7 p.m. on the first Thursday of the month.  The St. Monica Book Club meets at 1 p.m. at the Fisher residence on the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month.  Contact Kay Fisher at 641-792-2863 or jfk.fisher@gmail.com

Seasons of Hope

The support group offers the bereaved an opportunity to come together to share God’s love and give voice to their grief in order to find healing and spiritual growth. The program is grounded in the healing wisdom, traditions and practices of the Catholic Church. Facilitated by Kathy Hammerly.

Contact the parish office to see when the next session begins.

Secular Franciscans

The Secular Franciscan Order is the lay people’s branch of the worldwide Franciscan Family. It is a community of men and women in the world who seek to pattern their lives after Christ in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi. They work together toward a deeper evangelical life, sharing their ideals with other members for encouragement and support. They are part of the international order of Franciscan priests, brothers and sisters founded by St. Francis of Assisi. Please contact Betty Hummel at 792-5134 for more information.
