Faith Formation

Adult Faith Corner:  This group meets in the lower level of the church every Sunday from 9:30-10:20 a.m.  Various topics, such as world religions, social justice, and Vatican II, are presented through the use of videos and discussion aids.  For more information see the link below or go to volunteer@saintchristopherparish.org

Scripture Study:  Participants in the Scripture Study engage the Biblical Text in the light of the history, the language, the culture, and its formation as well as how the text might be understood today.  While the full program extends over four years, individuals are welcome to join for the years that interest them.   For more information go to info@saintchristopherparish.org

Children’s Baptism:  is a program for children of elementary age through high school who want to become members of the Catholic Church through baptism or who are past the usual age for First Communion and First Reconciliation and who wish to celebrate those sacraments.  For more information go to info@saintchristopherparish.org

Explorations in Faith:  This is the book discussion group that gathers once a month to talk about a particular book.  Individuals come with a perspective on the faith and values shared in the month’s selection. For more information see the link below or go to volunteer@saintchristopherparish.org

Men’s Saturday Scripture Group:  On the first and third Saturdays of the month, men of the parish are invited to gather in the lower level of the church from 7:30-9:00 a.m. for prayer and reflection on the Sunday readings.  For more information go to volunteer@saintchristopherparish.org

The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (“RCIA”):  provides the practical and theological background that a person needs to become a member of the Catholic community.  The program affords participants the opportunity to ask many of the practical questions they have always asked themselves.  The process emphasizes the meaning and the history of the Liturgy as well as the role of the Sacraments and how they serve as the source and summit of the Church’s life.  The RCIA process introduces the members to different prayer styles, the experience of participating in retreats, and a strong awareness of what it is to be a part of the St. Christopher community.  For more information go to info@saintchristopherparish.org

Sponsor Couples:  Married couples volunteer to assist in the marriage preparation of engaged couples.  They meet with the engaged couple, administer the pre-marital inventory (PREPARE), and give feedback regarding the results of the inventory.  Sponsor couples seek to model Catholic Christian values of marriage and family.  For more information go to volunteer@saintchristopherparish.org
