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 last fall. If you missed it, no worries; St. Joseph Parish has scheduled a repeat of those sessions beginning in October, 2022 in English and Spanish (see the schedule below). 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. Here are the sessions that are currently scheduled:
