Adult Faith Formation
Sunday Morning Adult Faith Enrichment
All adults are invited to grow in faith every Sunday morning in Marian Hall from 9:00 to 10:10 -- and enjoy coffee and donuts -- while Sunday School is in session. Topics are based upon the Lectionary to enrich understanding of the week's Liturgy of the Word and discussion is facilitated by experienced catechists using multi-media.

Bible Studies Group - Monday Mornings
The mission of this group is to study the different books of the Bible in their historical context and to see how they apply to us today. We follow the Little Rock Bible series commentaries and questions which include both the objective facts and the subjective way it affects us. In addition, the leaders give information from independent sources that adds to the discussion. Our biggest concern is discovering how the situations and ideas apply today in our own lives, and so discussion is greatly encouraged. It's by sharing our own joys and sorrows that we're best able to encourage each other to follow God's will more closely.
We meet Monday mornings from 8:45 am to 10 am in Seelos Hall of St. John Neumann Mission Church, September through May.
Bible Studies Group - Monday Evenings
Meetings take place in Seelos Hall (or the Chapel when the hall is unavailable) at St. John Neumann Mission Church beginning at 7 PM. For the fall we are viewing the Bible through the lens of Mothers, Lovers, Priests, Prophets, and Kings: What the Old Testament Tells Us about God and Ourselves by Mary Katherine Deeley (Liguori, 2010). This book offers a deeper appreciation of the nature of Scripture as a Living Word, a greater understanding of the connection between God in the Old Testament and God in the New, and a better awareness of the multifaceted nature of God s interaction with us. Our reflection is facilitated by an experienced catechist for adults, Ms. Tricia Crumley.
