God’s Pursuit of His People
Adult Ministry and Formation seek to fulfill the vision of St. Gabriel by you asking you to be a disciple in Jesus Christ, through the Sacramental life of the Church! "God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life.
For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church. To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life."(Catechism of the Catholic Church)
Our response is to enter into the great Plan of God. We are called to come into this beautiful friendship with God, here on earth and forever in heaven. Adult Formation, in light of God's goodness and goodwill, offers opportunities to answer the deepest questions we all have, strengthen faith, encourage conversion of heart, and to share the good news of Jesus with others.
We continue to understand this plan is fulfilled in and through the Church, the Body of Christ. We are not meant for growth in faith alone, as we commune with God and His people.
Please answer the deepest longing of your heart by joining us at Mass, in Scripture study, in discipleship groups, and more.
