Adult Faith Formation
St. Joseph Community strives to help all of our parishioners to grow, as our faith formation is never ending. We strive to provide opportunities throughout the year for adults to come together to grow in faith. Typically studies are offered in the fall, spring, and summer. Check out below our current studies being offered.

Wisdom & Works of Mercy
This 10-session, Wisdom & Works of Mercy Group Study, helps each participant advance in understanding the riches of the Catholic faith and how to concretely live it by doing works of mercy. As a group, participants delve into two books by Fr. Michael Gaitley, MIC: The ‘One Thing’ Is Three: How the Holy Trinity Explains Everything and ‘You Did It to Me’: A Practical Guide to Mercy in Action, which together provide a rich and robust formation, bringing the faith from head to heart to life.
