Adult Faith Formation

St. John Neumann parish offers many opportunities for adults to grow in their relationship with the Lord and understanding of His call. The formal, ongoing Adult Faith Formation program has the following annual components:


Fall Bible Study – September to November, Winter Bible Study – January to February, Parish Renewal – three-day parish wide retreat with guest homilist, Easter Season Faith Forums: “I wonder, I believe…” – evening programs on various aspects of the Catholic faith during the four Sundays following Easter.

We also periodically offer special events and presentations by well known authors and speakers. Watch the website and the bulletin for dates, times, and topics.

For those interested in participating or helping with the promotion, hospitality, or facilitation of Adult Faith Formation, contact Coleen (Kibler) Hamilton, Director of Religious Education, at or by phone at 569-8531 ext. 212. 

What IS truth?  Pontius Pilate asked that question and, sometimes, it seems he had a point !  Are we in a position to know what is right?  Are there “right” choices or are decisions “right” relative to our circumstances…or the circumstances of others?

Join us as Dr. Edward Sri helps us understand classical morality and enables us to talk about it respectfully and joyfully.  During our time together we’ll explore how Catholic morality is all about love, why making a judgment is not judging a person, and why, in the words of Pope Francis, “relativism wounds people.”

Each of the eight sessions includes a filmed talk by Dr. Sri, lively small group conversation, and no homework… only heartwork.

Begins September 18/19/20 and ends November 13/14/15

Walking With Purpose is a Catholic Bible study for women that aims to bring women into a deeper personal relationship with Jesus Christ by offering personal study and small group discussion that link our everyday challenges with the solutions given to us through the teachings of Christ and the Roman Catholic Church.

That Man Is You

That Man is You! honestly addresses the pressures and temptations that men face in our modern culture, especially those relating to their roles as husbands and fathers. The program harmonizes current social and medical science with the teachings of the Church and the wisdom of the saints to develop the vision of man fully alive!

Saturdays at 6:30 a.m. beginning in September.
