Adult Faith Formation

Welcome to St. Patrick’s Adult Faith Formation!

We are designed by God to seek a deeper relationship with Him and to become “Intentional Disciples”. Here at St Patrick’s we strive to enable and support the ongoing faith formation of all our parishioners from infancy through adulthood. We currently offer several opportunities to deepen your faith as an adult and as part of a community. From weekend and daily Masses, to weekly Scripture and prayer groups we offer different ways to help you deepen your faith.

Have you asked yourself or have you ever been asked “Why be Catholic and not just Christian?”  Here is the answer

The School of Christian Formation

 The Diocese of Palm Beach offers a series of classes throughout the diocese; allowing you to update your knowledge and reinforce your faith. The School of Christian Formation for the Diocese of Palm Beach, Florida offers a series of classes and programs for adult Catholics who wish to learn more about the rich traditions of their faith. Classes provide introductions to the major topics and historical periods of the Catholic faith.The goals of the School of Christian Formation are four-fold:

  1. To nourish and challenge Catholics with a deeper personal understanding of their faith tradition.
  2. To enable participants to bring this experience to their families, friends, places of work and ministry
  3. To explore the Catholic tradition from our local context as a diverse Church with members of different cultural backgrounds and with varying ministerial needs.
  4. To situate our experience of faith, Church and ministry in light of the teachings and documents of the Second Vatican Council.

The School of Christian Formation seeks to make its programming accessible to all persons in the diocese who are interested in learning more about their faith tradition. In matters regarding scheduling of times and locations, as well as the payment of fees, one of our primary goals is to meet the needs and limitations of participants in the program.While the fee for each class is $10.00, plus the price of the textbook, persons who wish to participate in the program and are active in parish ministry may wish to seek financial support from their parish, or call our office to discuss the situation. No one will be turned down for lack of funds.
