Religious Education for adults seeks to address the needs of the adults of Epiphany in deepening their understanding of their faith which will then lead to a more committed way of living their faith in Jesus Christ. Building on the religious education received as children, the questions and needs of adults go beyond what was learned during school years. Respecting the life experiences of adults, adult religious education should seek to integrate their questions with the teachings of the Church.
Learning about one’s faith, deepening one’s relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church does not end in 12th grade, but rather is a life-long process. We invite you to join us for the various adult education programs that are offered. Additional programs are being added on a regular basis. For more information, please follow the appropriate links or you may call Mandy at 722-0051 or Judy at 722-2110 extension 125.
Prayer for Those Who Seek to Learn
May the God of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of glory, grant you a spirit
of wisdom and insight to know him clearly.
May he enlighten your innermost vision
that you may know the great hope
to which he has called you, the wealth
of his glorious heritage to be distributed
among the members of the church, and
the immeasurable scope of his power
in us who believe.
Sharing the Light of Faith, taken from Ephesians 1:17
The Mass! Starts September 17.
Walk through the Liturgy with Bishop Barron and you’ll be transformed through insights on this most privileged and intimate encounter with our Lord Jesus Christ.
See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist.
The Mass will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life. Begins the week of September 17!

Fulfilled! Uncoversing the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism
Biblical Foundations of Catholicism (Part One). Starts January 7.
Part One focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism, and more. Part Two focuses on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more.
Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism (Part Two). Starts February 18.
Part Two focuses on the elements found in the inner sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the Magisterium, the Eucharist, incense, Mary, and more. Part One focuses on the elements found in the outer sanctuary of the Tabernacle and how they connect to the liturgical calendar, the priesthood, purgatory, baptism, and more. Have you ever been unable to explain the “why” of Catholic beliefs? Have you
ever wondered why the Old Testament sounds so different from the New Testament?
In the Old Testament, God began building a plan and laying a foundation for the beautiful traditions of the Catholic Faith. That plan was fulfilled by Jesus in the New Testament.
Fulfilled: Uncovering the Biblical Foundations of Catholicism is an apologetic approach to sharing the Catholic Faith using the Old Testament Tabernacle as a blueprint for God’s plan. While it is designed as a faith-sharing Scripture study, you will also gain an understanding of some of the most questioned Catholic teachings. Fulfilled will reignite your love of Scripture and help you share and defend the Catholic Faith with the Word of God.
