The Adult Faith Formation Committee meets to plan ways to provide adult members of the parish with opportunities to learn more about the teachings and traditions of the Catholic Church, as well as to grow in faith and improve their spiritual lives. The committee meets to review suggestions, and to plan for, various programs to accomplish its mission. Members contribute energy and expertise toward sponsoring and promoting events. This may include evenings or days of faith enrichment, fellowship, education, retreats, book fairs, parish missions and seasonal programs. The committee also provides information for faith enrichment opportunities at other locations within the Diocese of Covington, through bulletin announcements and the parish newsletter. Fresh and new ideas, requests or suggestions for programs, from within the parish community, are always welcomed and encouraged.

Committee members must be 18 years of age or older, actively involved in parish life, and have a desire to help enrich the faith life of fellow parishioners.
Meets at 7:00pm, the fourth Wednesday of each month in the parish center.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) program was created for people who want to explore the teachings of the Catholic Church. It is an open discussion format covering a wide variety of topics including Church history, the Sacraments, the teachings of Jesus, Sacred Scripture and a number of other relevant topics. The format is casual and we welcome all who are interested, including those who are interested in becoming Catholic,  any Catholics who have been away from the Church for some time or even active Catholics who want to deepen their faith.
Volunteers are needed to be sponsors.
