Parent Faith Formation

Since all parish efforts at children's faith formation support the ongoing formation within each family as a whole, it is necessary that parents (or legal guardians) participate in faith formation as well. Accordingly, special parent faith formation (or "Parent FF" or "PFF") sessions will be offered each month as indicated on the below calendar. Parent FF sessions will be held in the parish hall at the same time as the children's classes. At least one parent from each family needs to attend each of the monthly Parent FF sessions. Additional adult faith formation sessions will be offered on most of the other Sunday mornings and all parents are encouraged to participate. 


Adult Bible Study:  The Turning Point 

Adult Bible Study continues on Tues. mornings, 10:00-11:15am, in the Aquinas Center Conference Room. On Oct. 16 we will continue with session two of our new study: The Turning Point:  Eight Encounters with Jesus That Will Change Your Life (based on the Gospel of John and produced by Dynamic Catholic).  RSVP so we can have materials available for you; contact Ted Meany: or at 360-903-1357, ext. 215.

Adult Faith Formation on Sunday Mornings (2018-19)  

See above for the schedule of topics for 2018-2019. 

All parishioners are encouraged to participate:  in addition to classes on Sunday mornings for children and youth, we will continue to have sessions for adults (whether you have a child in Sunday school or not) in the hall between the Masses (9:50 - 10:40).

Adult Faith Formation (AFF) sessions on Sunday mornings will consist of presentations and discussions on a range of topics impacting our ability to embrace lives of committed discipleship in the pursuit of holiness.  We'll consider how to make sense of and to integrate the various spiritual disciplines, to keep up with contemporary issues affecting today's Church, and to better appreciate our Catholic cultural heritage, all while getting to know our fellow parishioners a bit better in the process.

Here's how it works:  come to the hall and enjoy coffee and a snack (or full breakfast on the first Sunday of the month) as you catch up with your neighbors; as always, introduce yourself if you meet someone new.  Parents take children to faith formation class by 9:45am and then return to the hall so the adult session can begin by about 9:50am.  A presentation will be offered for about 20-30 minutes and then your questions will be used to guide a discussion, either among the entire group or as small groups formed by the round tables.  

In general, Adult Faith Formation presentations and discussions will be held on the same schedule as when the children and youth classes meet (see above or on the children's faith formation webpage for a full calendar).
