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 email@example.com or by phone at 569-8531 ext. 212.

Unleash the Holy Spirit in Your Life
The Holy Spirit has been given to us not as a possession to be tamed or controlled, but rather as a Person who will lead us to the Heart of God. In this series by Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR you are invited to an encounter with the Holy Spirit, the very Breath of God, whose powerful presence transforms and brings us to a place of mercy, healing, peace, and purpose.
In each of eight weekly sessions, we will explore a different aspect of the Holy Spirit which includes a short video by Fr. Dave followed by facilitated small group conversation and reflection. Our multiple sections allow participants to choose and/or move among three sections at St. John Neumann, Lancaster and St. James, Lititz.
