Adult Formation, Fellowship & Leadership

At St. Mary’s, we try to offer a variety of opportunities for adults to share their faith, join in fellowship and serve in leadership and more meaningfully engage their minds and hearts in the Christian tradition.

Here we have listed our ongoing opportunities:

Bible Study, Faith Sharing, Adult Learning

We have a women’s bible study and faith sharing group that meets  on Wednesdays from 4:30 to 6 pm. 

During the season of Lent, Lenten small faith groups form to break open each Sunday Gospel and for Lenten faith sharing.

Several Cursillo 4th Day and Ultreya groups meet weekly for faith sharing.

Our SALT Family Formation offers adult learning sessions during the monthly sessions for children. SALT Family Formation usually meets on the 2nd Sunday of the month, 9-10:30 am, Oct—Apr.
