Adult Formation Classes

“Wow, what an eye opening experience!” This was the response most often given by the participants in our Adult Formation Series, Dr. Edward Sri’s, “A Biblical Walk Through The Mass”, offered in 2020. Another round of Adult Formation Sessions in English were held during the Lenten Season, 2021. We were excited to offer six sessions focused on Dr. Edward Sri’s book, “No Greater Love: A Biblical Walk Through Christ’s Passion”. Dr. Edward Sri took us on a journey into the meaning of the Passion based on Holy Scripture and how this event relates to us today. The participants surely strengthened their faith by gaining a deeper insight of Jesus’ love for you as expressed in His Passion. The feedback has been great! Please consider joining us in the next Adult Formation Class sessions. The topic of the 2023 Spring sessions was Divine Mercy: In The Second Greatest Story Ever Told – Fr. Michael Gaitley.

In these sessions, Renowned speaker and author Fr. Michael Gaitley tells the dramatic history of God’s love and mercy as interwoven through the transformative message of St. Faustina, the miraculous appearance of Mary at Fatima, the witness of Maximilian Kolbe, and the world-changing papacy of Pope St. John Paul II. Featuring the brilliant cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute’s film studio, the vast panorama of God’s work of mercy in the world unfolds as a story to be experienced.
