Adult Faith Formation
Within the joys and hopes, struggles and challenges, dreams and visions, griefs and anxieties, prayers and reaching out of everyone of us there is the need for growth, the desire for deepening formation, ever-growing closer to our God, one another and all of God's creation. (Excerpted from the SF Archdiocese website.)
Our Mission of Adult Faith Formation:
Add meaningful spiritual experience to our lives by:
- Praising God and thanking God for our Blessings.
- Scripture Reading and Discussion.
- Petitionary Prayers for our Priests, Church, Parishioners, Friends, Relatives, World Leaders, World Peace and for all mankind.
- Spiritual Enlightenment.
- Discussing Doctrine and Fellowship.
- Sharing God’s love.
- Manifesting and sharing the Gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Every Thursday in the Saint Francis Room from 2:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

IS GOD CALLING YOU TO WALK IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI?
We, the members of the Secular Franciscan Order, Junipero Serra Region, called to follow the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, in the footprints of St. Francis, seek holiness through prayer, action and promotion of the reign of God within the Franciscan Family, the Church, and the World. Because we believe that Jesus is present among us, especially in the poor, the broken, the dis-enfranchised, we are compelled to reach out to serve and cherish them.
