Adult Faith Formation

Faith formation is a lifelong process which should not end upon receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation.  Throughout the year, our parish’s Catechetical Leader and volunteers provide parishioners with several ways in which to enrich their faith and spiritual life.  Participants in the studies and faith-sharing communities have commented on how much they have enjoyed learning about their Catholic Christian faith and find themselves becoming closer to Jesus.  These activities also provide a wonderful opportunity to get to know fellow parishioners and to start new friendships.

SCRIPTURE STUDY.  According to St. Jerome, “Not to know the Scriptures, is not to know Christ”.  To help us understand Scripture, a study of one of the books of the Bible is offered at least once a year.  This Scripture study group usually meets once a week for 90 minutes over a period of 4 to 7 weeks, depending on the length of that book of the Bible.  If you have any QUESTIONS or COMMENTS, please contact the Parish Catechetical Leader, Stacey Schear, at 732-363-4137 or email

Several SMALL CHRISTIAN COMMUNITIES meet regularly to share their faith experiences, pray, learn about their faith, and enjoy each other’s company.  A community consists of 8–10 people and meets weekly, monthly or seasonally (e.g., Advent, Lent, Easter) depending on the needs and schedules of the individual communities.  Participants in these communities have expressed a deeply satisfying and wonderful experience of support and friendship with fellow parishioners who try to live the values of their Catholic Christian faith in today’s world.
