Every once in a while, it’s worth taking a look at a good thing and making it even better. That’s what the folks in the Adult Faith Formation ministry have spent the last year doing. The result is Encounter, a new way to understand, share and live your faith. This continuing education program 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 adults in their current space.
Do not fear! All of the programming that parishioners have come to love (bible studies, faith sharing and seasonal activities) will continue to feed souls. But Encounter is taking it up a notch, bringing events and programs of all sizes: short series, one-time events, small groups, large groups, adults-only, family friendly, in person and online.
“We want to give adults the same energy and excitement of the Life Teen and Launch programs in a meaningful, relevant way,” says Stephanie Holden, Encounter coordinator.
