Adult Enrichment

The Adult Enrichment Committee offers both multi-session classes and periodic opportunities to help adults grow in their faith and apply it in their daily lives.  Past offerings have included the Catholicism series, the Great Adventure Bible Study, a funeral tutorial, a biblical walk through the Mass, book club, and movie nights.  The committee also maintains a kiosk in the gathering space with books and CD’s on a variety of subjects concerning the faith.  The AEC is always looking for new members to help program new opportunities for parishioners to grow in their faith!

Scripture Studies

Scripture study opportunities range from single night sessions to eight week programs.  Our first program ever was the 24-week “Great Adventure Bible Study”.   Since then we have done a large number of highly respected programs from Ascension Press and Bishop Barron’s Word on Fire.  Programs have included studies on the Book of Acts, the Gospel of Matthew, the Book of Revelation, Galatians, Ephesians, The Catholicism Video Series, The Pivotal Players, The Eucharist, and the The Seven Deadly Sins/Seven Lively Virtues.  We try to sponsor two studies per year, so keep an eye on the bulletin and the news feed on this website for upcoming programs!

Movie Nights

The Adult Enrichment Committee sponsors a movie night every couple months in the Gathering Space.  Movie Night is a just a quiet evening with fellow parishioners and guests watching some thoughtful movies with some light refreshments and popcorn.  Afterwards there is opportunity for discussion and sharing about themes and issues raised by the movie.  Keep an eye out for news posts on this website and bulletin ads for our next movie and come join us!
