OUR GOAL is to grow in the love of God through programs of learning, spiritual development, and Christian education. We seek to enrich our relationship with God, who inspires us to continually learn and grow. To that end we seek to provide Christian education and tools for spiritual development for all ages, to reach out and welcome the unchurched and the lapsed, to identify and nurture the spiritual gifts of all members, and to help shape and nurture ordained vocation.
NURSERY for infants, toddlers, and other small children is available on Sundays during High Mass. Professional care is provided. Parents are invited to bring their children from the nursery at Communion.
SUNDAY SCHOOL. We use an approach known as the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd, a Montessori method of Christian formation of the child. Children ages 3 through 12 learn by doing— in a specially prepared "atrium."
ALPHA is a practical, low-key introduction to Christianity with opportunities for debate and discussion—a series of talks addressing key issues relating to the Christian faith. It is designed for anyone who is curious about Christianity.
BIBLE STUDY. The Bible study group, led by the Scott Merritt, seeks to gain a better understanding of the Bible by close reading and discussion of each book. The group meets every Sunday after the High Mass for 45 to 60 minutes.
CATECHUMENATE. The catechumenate, which draws on the practice of the ancient Church and anglo-catholic tradition, teaches us about how God's grace works and helps us experience that grace. All are welcome.
COFFEE HOUR FORUM. During the latter part of Sunday coffee hour, from about 12:00 noon until 12:30, we have a forum in the underoft for learning about the Christian faith and discussing essential aspects of parish life.
THEOLOGY BOOK CLUB. Meeting regularly in the parish house or in a member's home, the club discusses a wide variety of new and historic books and other documents of interest to club members.
