Adult Faith Formation is designed to help adults continuously grow in the life of Christ. These experiences include, but are not limited to, opportunities for study and discussion, prayer and reflection, fellowship and mutual support. Adult Faith Formation develops and coordinates informational and educational programs to assist parishioners in deepening their spiritual life.
The following programs are available:
PRE-CANA (Marriage Preparation)
Congratulations on your engagement! The Church rejoices with you as you approach the sacrament of marriage and wishes to support you in living your married life to the fullest!
All couples seeking the Sacrament of Matrimony are asked to make an appointment with the Pastor at least 6 months in advance of the wedding, and to take a Marriage Preparation class held by the Archdiocese of Philadelphia. You can register online for the class by clicking the image below:
PRE-JORDAN (Baptism Preparation)
Parents of children to be baptized must attend a Pre-Jordan class. Emphasis is given to the symbolism of the rite, the role of the sacrament in reaffirming membership in the family community, and the responsibilities of parents and godparents. Classes are held at 7:00 PM on the 3rd Monday of every month unless otherwise announced. Contact the Rectory for more information and to register at 610-272-0402.
