All Souls Grow

 

When a person becomes a Christian by being baptized, she or he—or the godparents in the case of an infant—makes a promise to continue on a lifelong path of spiritual formation “into the image of Christ.” This undertaking includes education, but it goes far beyond that. Christian formation is the lifelong process of growing in relationship with God, self, others and all creation. 

Adult Formation

Adult Forum meets regularly on Sundays at 10 a.m. in the parish hall, except for occasional holiday pauses. We consider a wide range of topics including contemporary theological and social issues and matters of parish life. Dates and topics are announced in The Weekly.

Reading with the Rector
From time to time, Father Jadon asks us to read and discuss books as a parish. He reflects on them in his preaching and makes opportunities for us to discuss them together in special forums and/or mini-retreats.

Below, find the Reading with the Rector books we've discussed recently.
