Adult Education

There are a number of opportunities to further your spiritual education in the area, both through our parish and through other area organizations.

Upper Room


Is There More to Life Than This?

Yes. No. Maybe. Probably? We all have questions that we want answered. Alpha provides an opportunity for those questions to be answered. Alpha is a series that seeks to answer the deepest questions core to our identity through meal-sharing, prepared talks and open conversation. It’s about discovering, discussing, and finding a place to belong with friends, both new and old. Everyone is welcome. No question is too simple, no answer prepared. You’re free to discuss as much [or little] as you wish.

A typical Alpha session meets once a week for 11 weeks. All Alpha sessions are free of charge (please register so we know you’re coming), and you’re welcome to check out the first week of a session with no commitment. Read more…


The Oremus study program teaches you the essentials of an effective and fruitful prayer life. Over the course of eight weeks you will discover how God speaks to you, even in the smallest encounters. Following the Tradition of the Catholic Church and the wisdom of the saints, you will learn how to express yourself to God in prayer, and how to hear his voice. For more…

Life in the Spirit Seminars (LSS)

These seminars are a set of teachings and activities about various aspects of the Charismatic life that include personal prayer to receive more of the Holy Spirit. Jesus promised to send His Spirit when He said, “John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.” On Pentecost this promise was fulfilled and is still the promise for all today (Acts 2:1-4). These seminars provide an opportunity to receive that promise.

The Life in the Spirit Seminar offers the teachings over a seven-week period; the Holy Spirit Seminar provides these teachings in an all-day Saturday format. These seminars are offered at various points throughout the year and are open not only to new parishioners, but to anyone inside or outside the parish who is interested in deepening their life in God the Holy Spirit. Check the bulletin for information about upcoming seminars.
