Adult Formation



Thanks to the generosity of one person you can enjoy a free one-year membership to Formed, a Catholic on-line resource. It has something for everyone. We want to give witness to the Risen Christ’s Presence in each person and to recommit ourselves to being disciples of Jesus Christ and to living our faith fully. Please take advantage of this opportunity, there is also an app, and let us know that you are using it and what you like.
