Adult Faith Formation

The Christian faith is, above all, conversion to Jesus Christ. All adults are called to on-going formation that “fosters in the heart of every believer an experience of personal conversion to Jesus Christ that leads to a personal renewal and greater participation in the Christian life in the Church.” –National Directory of Catechesis (no.17)

From the moment of our baptism we began our life-long journey of faith.  God draws us to himself throughout our lives and it is important that we strive to grow in holiness, and in our relationship with God. Growing in knowledge and understanding of the Catholic faith helps us to do just that.
Adult Faith Formation at Christ the King aims to nurture and challenge adults to explore our faith, experience community, and grow as mature disciples.

Please be sure to look for further detailed information under our “Becoming Catholic” tab.
  • Parent/Guardian Sessions for Sacramental Formation It is a time of great joy when a child or teen is Baptized, forgiven in Confession, nourished in Holy Communion or strengthen through the Gifts of the Holy Spirit in Confirmation.  Parents/Guardians of children or teen’s who are to receive any of these Sacraments are to attend the Parent/Guardian Formation sessions scheduled yearly for that specific Sacrament. Look under the “Sacraments” tab to learn more.
