“It is in pardoning that we are pardoned.” -St. Francis

Adult Religious Studies

Religious education has traditionally been associated with children by way of CCD or parochial schools. Therefore, adult Catholics have been left out, but often desire to recapture the knowledge they learned as children and apply their faith to the many trials of adulthood. Often it is not until someone of another faith asks us questions like “Why do Catholics worship Mary?” or “Why do you have to confess to a priest?” that we begin to realize how much we have forgotten or just never really got a firm understanding of in the first place.

Our mission is to provide lifelong education and rediscovery of our Catholic Faith and Traditions for both cradle Catholics and new converts to the Faith.

The following are ways in which we try to do just that:

Sunday Morning 9:15-10:15 am, Family Life Center Lounge

Adult Bible sessions, coffee and discussion. Reflection and information for you and something for your children to use during the week!

Sunday Morning 9:00-10:15 am, St. Clare Hall

Coffee and Creed presents a great way to learn more about your Catholic faith. Programs from Ascension Press, Word on Fire, Formed.org, and the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology are offered. Basic Catholic apologetics are also included. Experience has demonstrated that there is power in sharing your faith within the context of a small faith group. Participants sit in groups of six to eight. After watching or listening to a presentation, each small faith group shares their thoughts on the teaching presented that morning. Coffee and donuts are also included. For more information, please go to the Coffee and Creed website at https://www.stfrancismadisonchristlife.org/coffee-and-creed1.html.
