Adult Enrichment

Adult faith formation groups and classes are a great way to casually meet others, form friendships and grow in faith together. Scroll down to see details on current offerings. 

Interested in something else? Consider hosting a group of your own with resources and help provided by the Adult Faith Formation Office.  We have a library of books and DVD programs, as well as accompanying discussion questions. Studies can be hosted at the parish, in homes or at coffee shops. Contact Tessa Roberts at 276-4042 or tessar@stmarysdsm.org.

How has God uniquely gifted YOU to share His love in your family, workplace & community? Grow in understanding the most common charisms (spiritual gifts given at baptism) and discover your next steps for more purposeful living.  You’ll develop charism experiments, evaluate your results & identify ways you learned to control life as a child that get in the way of using your charisms now.  If you have not yet taken a spiritual gifts inventory, you will need to set up a time to do so before discernment groups begin. For more information, see the flyer or contact Tessa Roberts at 515-276-4042 or tessar@stmarysdsm.org.
