THE WAY is our parishes approach for those who wish to progress in their spiritual journey toward becoming missionary disciples. Along this journey of THE WAY are opportunities that allow us to Encounter Christ grow in community, acquire greater depth of knowledge and understanding of the faith. One of the ways we do this is through EQUIP.
EQUIP Adults offers a full complement of sessions throughout the week on the scriptures and our Catholic tradition that will inspire and support parishioners, at any age, to explore the vast riches of our faith. EQUIP Adults is offered year-round.
EQUIP Adults provides excellent opportunities for adults to dive into their knowledge and study of the faith in new and dynamic ways. EQUIP Adults will occur in consecutive gatherings with the exception of one Sunday and Wednesday a month to provide space for an ongoing monthly parish event (EQUIP Families and ENCOUNTER). Our goal is to provide new, relevant and engaging opportunities for adults of all vocations, professional and personal backgrounds, and experiences to partake in.
