Adult Ministry

Adult Ministry and Formation seeks to fulfill the vision of Holy Family by you asking you to be a disciple in Jesus Christ, a living witness to the Good News! " God, infinitely perfect and blessed in himself, in a plan of sheer goodness freely created man to make him share in his own blessed life.

For this reason, at every time and in every place, God draws close to man. He calls man to seek him, to know him, to love him with all his strength. He calls together all men, scattered and divided by sin, into the unity of his family, the Church.  To accomplish this, when the fullness of time had come, God sent his Son as Redeemer and Savior. In his Son and through him, he invites men to become, in the Holy Spirit, his adopted children and thus heirs of his blessed life." (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1)

Our response then is to enter into the great Plan of God. We are called to come into this beautiful friendship with God, here on earth and forever in heaven. Adult Formation, in light of God's goodness and good will, offers opportunities to answer the deepest questions we all have, strengthen faith, encourage conversion of heart and to share that good news of Jesus with others.

Evening of Recollection: How to Forgive Ourselves & Others

Join us on Tuesday, January 8, 6:30-7:45pm at Sacred Heart Church for this beautiful evening!

Fr. Allan Weinert, who grew up in Kewaskum, Wisconsin, presents this evening of recollection to help us prepare for Lent. He now serves as the Parochial Vicar at St. Alphonsus / St. Mary's Assumption Parish in New Orleans, Louisiana.

As we prepare to enter into Lent, this is a good time to look at the direction and meaning we have set for our lives. What do we want to do to make our life better for ourselves and for those with whom we live? Lent, and the transition from the old to the new year, gives us an opportunity to measure ourselves. What did we resolve during the past year? Has anything changed inside of us? Such introspection is a sign of our desire to live the best way possible for ourselves and for others.

Adam Storey Parish Mission

March 31, 2019 - April 2, 2019

LIFE OF PASSION, LIFE OF LOVE

In this parish mission, Adam Storey will show how a life of passion must be rooted in a loving relationship with Jesus Christ. It is in Jesus where we encounter the most passionate lover conceivable. It is in Him where we find fulfillment of the heart's deepest desires. Adam will explore the value of this relationship, common challenges to this relationship, and he'll offer practical and simple ways for everyone to grow in this most precious relationship with God.

Passionate Hearts:
The heart of the Christian life is about entering into a loving relationship with God- who first seeks us. During this first evening, Adam will explore why we must open our hearts to God, helping participants see that He is what our hearts most long for- for it is in this relationship where we are most alive. Using the lives of the saints and personal stories, Adam will show that our relationship with God truly has the power to transform us.

When the Rubber Meets the Road:
It's easy to think that a vibrant relationship with Jesus is a gift only offered to a few. Not so. In this talk, Adam will show that developing and nurturing this relationship with Jesus is accessible to all of us. however, there are challenges along the way. In this second evening, Adam will explore common challenges for every Catholic, including struggling to find time, feeling awkward, and attempts to hide ourselves from God- and what we can do about it. 

Tuesday, April 2, 2019: 6:30pm, Holy Family Church
Let's Get Real:
Every love story is different, and so is every relationship with the Lord. However, there are small patterns of holiness every Christian can embark upon each day. In this final evening, Adam will offer five simple and concrete disciplines a disciple of the Lord Jesus can add to their day, allowing them to greater fall in love with God and his Catholic Church.
