St. Ann’s Adult Faith Formation is updating its approach because today’s Catholics are more diverse and busier than ever. Encounter is a new take on lifelong faith that will meet you at your stage of life and faith. Programming comes in all sizes: short series, large groups, adults only, family friendly, in person and online. Rediscover your faith. Connect to community.

Every now and then it's good to back up and look at the big picture, to see the "forest through the trees." Who is God, who is Jesus, why and how to pray, and how do resist evil are just some of the topics discussed. Alpha is for everyone looking for meaningful discussion, a strong community and a way to connect to God. It's especially good for those that are seeking, have questions or have been away from the church. Invite a spouse, neighbor or adult child and experience with together.

order of christian initiation


Ready to enter into or form a closer relationship with Jesus Christ? Are you a Catholic who needs to complete a sacrament of initiation (Baptism, Eucharist or Confirmation) or learn more about your faith? OCIA is the place for you! 

OCIA stands for the Order of Christian Initiation for Adults, Teens (OCIT) and Children (OCIC). Our team members facilitate the faith journey by encouraging a deeper relationship with God and to our community. Sessions culminate with the sacraments of initiation made at our beautiful Easter Vigil mass. We also welcome Catholics who want to learn more about their faith or would like to act as sponsors.

The next set of OCIA sessions begins Sept. 8, 8:30-11:00am, in the Donnellan Café. 

We realize faith doesn't always conform to a schedule, so informal meetings for any who are interested occur throughout the year. Please contact us for dates and times.

Adults: Contact Susan Harris or fill out the REGISTRATION FORM.
