Adult Faith Formation

The Adult Faith Formation ministry provides opportunities to deepen one’s faith in the areas of theology, prayer, and spirituality.


 

The Miniseries

This new offering is for those who can’t commit to an ongoing series like BYOB but who still want to engage in some adult formation. Each Miniseries will consist of 2 or 3 episodes–consecutive nights of exploration of one theological or spiritual topic.

St. James Small Group Studies

Our goal is to deepen our personal relationship with God through small group faith-sharing and fellowship. Are you seeking… a closer relationship with God?  a deeper Catholic faith?  more meaningful friendships?

Small Group Study may be the right experience for you to help fulfill those needs! Groups are formed with about 8-10 participants. Some groups meet only during the six weeks of Lent while others meet bimonthly or weekly. Meetings are guided by a facilitator and usually last between 1 to 2 hours (based on the group). If you are interested or would like to learn more, please contact Matt Marcheschi at 224-345-7210 or mmarcheschi@stjamesah.org.
