Adult Formation

Christian formation is a lifelong journey. It is a pursuit that is rooted in the vows of our Baptismal Covenant which encourages us to grow in Christ at every age and in all aspects of our lives.

The Chapel of the Cross offers a robust collection of opportunities to encourage all parishioners in the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others, and all creation.
