Adult Faith Formation

FAITH is not simply believing in the existence of God.  Existence by itself is a rather boring thing.  A person can “exist” without ever speaking, sharing thoughts, and personally communicating. God does more than “exist” and adult faith formation is freely and intelligently moving toward a closer relationship with God and all our sisters and brothers.  This sense of movement, this sense of journey characterizes a life of faith.  It is a life marked by challenge and change. The purpose of adult faith formation at St. Thomas More Newman Center is to assist pilgrims like you to continue your faith journey.
