The School of Christian Formation

The School of Christian Formation for the Diocese of Palm Beach is offering a series of classes and programs here for adult Catholics who wish to learn more about the rich traditions of their Faith. Each course meets on Tuesday evenings from 7:00- 9:00 pm for a total of six classes. Two courses are taught during the fall and two during the spring. You may attend individual courses for credit or follow the entire three-year program. This year we will be doing an overview of the Bible with four courses over the academic year. They will include:

Introduction to the Bible with Diane Kent – August 17th – September 28th

Old Testament with Fr. John D’Mello – October 12th – November 16th

New Testament with Patti Amann – January 4th- February 8th

Christology with Andrea Cook – Feb 22nd – Mar 29th

Adult Virtual Faith Formation

Recent decades have witnessed a surge of the religiously unaffiliated, especially among young people. Many former believers have simply turned their backs on Christianity and no longer accept its teachings. But what are those teachings? And are they the same as what so many people reject?

In The Creed, a new film series blending both documentary footage and dynamic talks, Bishop Robert Barron guides viewers into the depths of the Nicene Creed, a fourth-century statement of faith that has profoundly influenced both Eastern and Western spirituality, theology, and liturgy.

Explore the meaning of “belief” and whether it contradicts reason; the creative love of God the Father; the shocking mystery of his Son’s Incarnation and the great drama of his Crucifixion and Resurrection; the life-giving power of the Spiritus Sanctus, or “Holy Breath,” shared between them; and the mystical reality of the Church, which calls all of humanity out of the world of sin to receive forgiveness and participate in Christ’s divinity—not only in the next world but here and now.

The Creed will help you rediscover the great intellectual and spiritual depths of Christian doctrine and reclaim the unity, clarity, and conviction of the Christian faith.
