Adult Education Opportunities

There’s something for everyone interested in spiritual growth!

We offer a variety of opportunities for adults to grow in faith through challenging and thought-provoking classes. Some classes are offered on Sundays, and some during the week. We try to offer a diverse programming to accommodate the varied spiritual needs of our parishioners including a contemplative prayer group, a Bible study, and topical courses.
