Adult CHRISTIAN FORMATION & EdUCATION

Parish-wide book study of James Bryan Smith’s The Good and Beautiful God for the Epiphany season.


Father Patrick is excited to invite you to a nine week book study. The sermon from the Third Sunday of Advent gives an invitation and overview.


Here are the groups:

  • Mondays (starting January 10th) from 7 to 8:15 PM via Zoom (facilitated by Mother Susan)
  • Thursdays (starting January 6th) from 6:15 to 7:30 PM in-person (masks required) in the Parish Hall (facilitated by Father Patrick)
  • Thursdays (starting January 6th) from 6:15 to 7:30 PM via Zoom (facilitated by Sue Savarese)

At the very least, we encourage everyone in the parish to read the book.


Please RSVP to Father Patrick. If the price of the book would be a barrier, please let me know, and we’ll make sure you get a copy.




Christian Formation - Adult Education

Sundays at 9:15 - 10:15 a.m. in the Parish Hall

(masks are required)




Dr. Jack Davis presented a three-part series on “Three Great Mysteries of Our Christian Faith: the Holy Spirit; the Trinity; and the Incarnation.”

These sessions will explore the biblical foundations of these important truths, some of the barriers and misunderstandings about them in church history, and practical ways of enhancing our personal spiritual experience in worship and daily life.     Dr. Davis is the Andrew Mutch Distinguished Professor of Theology at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and his most recent book is Practicing the Ordinary Supernatural Presence of God (Cascade Books, 2021).
