Adult Formation

Faith formation is not just for kids!

Faith Formation is a life-long process.  We should continually grow in our faith.  We hope that this site will be helpful and be fun at the same time.  Watch for changes and new information!

The Eucharist: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics (October 2022)

Since our Eucharistic Revival has begun in June, we are gearing up for Eucharistic book studies at each of the four parishes in this Catholic community.  The book, The Eucharist: A Bible Study Guide for Catholics, by Fr. Mitch Pacwa, S.J., along with a Catholic Bible, will be the materials used.  The book explains the connection between Scripture and the Holy Eucharist. Books are on sale until the end of August, so we would like to order soon! Any small groups currently meeting are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity for spiritual growth.  Those not part of a small group can either join with an existing group or form a group specifically for this Eucharistic study.   But please sign up now—no later than August 26th. Sign up sheet is in the church entrance, OR call the parish office (715-427-5259)!

The Diocese of Superior has launched a new web page to house a collection of online Catholic resources to support adult faith formation. This new website includes links to interesting and informative websites, videos, podcasts, radio programs and mobile apps as well as resources for catechists.
