The St. Albert’s Adult Faith Formation Committee was established in the fall of 2005, following the success of the Jeff Cavins Bible Timeline that was presented in the spring of that same year.
This committee actively seeks out, plans, and promotes ongoing faith formation opportunities to the adult parishioners of St. Albert’s. It also voluntarily produces the monthly Adult Faith Formation Newsletter as a bulletin insert, of which the current and past copies (in their color versions!) can be found on this webpage.
We are dedicated to bringing the fullness of the Catholic faith to St. Albert’s, as well as the surrounding communities. Our purpose is to offer opportunities for spiritual growth that include but are not limited to bible studies, speakers, parish missions, retreats, social events, and ongoing education—so that as a community we can fulfill the call to continually grow in our faith as practicing Roman Catholics united with the Holy Father.
The committee currently meets on a periodic basis depending on the programs and opportunities that are being presented. Meeting dates are listed on the parish calendar and bulletin. Current committee members are listed in the header of the Adult Faith Formation Newsletter.
We invite parish members to make suggestions for studies, speakers, programs, or events that they would like to see presented at St. Albert’s. Finally, assistance is always needed and welcome – even on a one-time basis! If you are interested in becoming a committee member, have a suggestion, or are willing to help in any way, please contact one of the committee members or call the parish office at 763-497-2474.
