Year round, Life long, Adult Faith Formation Sessions

Lifelong faith formation strives to develop and enliven disciples of Jesus Christ and to continue our individual lifelong conversion.

14This is crucial: we must be converted—and we must continue to be converted! We must let the Holy Spirit change our lives! We must respond to Jesus Christ. And we must be open to the transforming power of the Holy Spirit who will continue to convert us as we follow Christ. If our faith is alive, it will be aroused again and again as we mature as disciples. 15. We can only share what we have received; we can hold on to our faith only if it continues to grow. “But if salt loses its taste,” Jesus asked, “with what can it be seasoned?” Go and Make Disciples, USCCB.

St. Mary Magdalene strives to offer a variety of formation opportunities for example, understanding and communicating the faith, skills needed for personal growth, the experience of family life, relationships, public service, and concern for the common good.
