Adult Faith Formation

As followers of Jesus Christ, we share in the mission of proclaiming the Good News through our words and actions. To do this, we must possess a mature faith. As adult Catholics, we must be men and women of prayer who are grounded in a sound, strong, and deep understanding of our faith. Examples of some offerings include Bible Study, Alpha, Life in the Spirit, and adoration.

Lenten Communities

 Father Dan and the rest of the parish staff have been brainstorming a Lenten “Mission” for weeks, and we have come up with nothing that seems to fit the needs of people in this time.
The one thing we know is that people need community now more than ever. As we await the lifting of the dispensation and the return to our full communion with the Body of Christ, we hope to develop small communities within our parish community.
This Lent, we are asking people to commit to meeting to discuss the upcoming Sunday readings. You will read the readings, pray with the Gospel using lectio divina (we will provide instructions), and then discuss the provided questions for the Gospel.
All you need to do is find a partner to help you lead (optional), ask three or four more friends to join you, pick a day/time/location, and submit the information to Sarah Salow at ssalow@stmarypinckney.org.
The Spirit will guide your prayer and discussion, and we provide the format and questions! The entire time commitment should be about an hour a week with minimal to no preparation.
We are happy to open up spaces in the church for you to meet (space is limited and must be reserved in advance), or you can meet elsewhere. If you do not know who to ask but are willing to lead, we will happily help you find group members. If you would like to participate as a group member, we will pair you with a leader.
We understand that this might feel like yet another thing to add to your schedule, but we ask that you prayerfully consider how you can best grow closer to Christ during this Lenten season. If you are interested in learning more, receiving materials, submitting a day/time/location, or finding group members/leader please email Sarah Salow at ssalow@stmarypinckney.org.
