Adult Faith Formation

Attention Young Adults:
a group for young adults ages 22-33 is starting up this fall here at St. Luke’s.  The purpose of the group is to get together to pray, study Scripture and the Catholic faith, and grow in our relationship with Jesus Christ together.  Meetings will be the 1st & 3rd Tuesdays of the month at 7:00 pm.  For more information, email Jacob at jblackmer_life@yahoo.com or Paschal at njokui@mail.gvsu.edu.

And this is my prayer:
that your love may increase ever more
and more in knowledge and every kind of perception,
to discern what is of value,
so that you may be pure and blameless for the day of Christ,
filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through
Jesus Christ for the glory and praise of God.Philippians 1:9-11

As baptized disciples of Jesus Christ, our entire life is an unfolding of the mystery of the Grace of our communion with God. This process does not happen automatically, but as a dialogue of faith between God and ourselves. This process is called Faith Formation. It brings our hearts and our minds into deeper communion with Christ, and it is a life-long endeavor.

Well-formed Catholic adults are the key to well-formed Catholic children, youth, and families.  Adult Faith Formation is also of vital importance for our college parishioners.  You are learning to examine the world in a deeper, more mature way through your university classes.  St. Luke’s seeks to be a resource to you to deepen and mature your relationship with the Lord and your understanding of the Catholic faith.  All confirmed adults are called to deepen our love and knowledge of our faith and to be able to share the Good News with confidence.

Throughout the year, St. Luke’s offers opportunities for adults to grow in wisdom, knowledge, and grace through Bible studies, Lectio Divina and other prayer opportunities, small group faith-sharing, and classes. Please see this page and the parish calendar for times, dates, and current offerings.

We’re also pleased to offer another venue for adult Faith Formation in our parish.  FORMED is an online service for accessing thousands of Catholic videos, audios and eBooks on demand. As a member, you will have access to entertaining movies, inspiring audio talks, informative bible studies, and much more. We provide this resource free of charge to help our members grow in their faith.

Please contact John Graveline with any questions.
