Adult Ministries

The adult ministry exists to draw us together as Kingdom builders in our lives, our homes, our jobs, our community, and our church. We strive to be continually growing in our relationship with Christ through prayer, studying His word, fellowship and service. 

Small Groups are a great way to grow in faith, practicing accountability and becoming stronger disciples for Christ.


Faith formation is at the heart of what our Catholic life is all about. In many ways, we engage in the practices of our daily lives and the rituals of our faith communities - through worship, mission, working for justice and peace, and education so that our faith may be nurtured, enlivened, sustained, and formed. Knowing we are God's beloved is an appropriate vision for how we might view the ministry of faith formation. At Guardian Angels we can understand faith formation to be an engaged process of learning and practice integrated throughout all aspects of parish and daily life. This definition highlights the initiative and action we must take in our own faith formation. In essence, we participate in being formed and transformed by the Holy and by one another. Throughout all of our doing and being, we are reminded that God's "hands" are continually present in our efforts to gain both "head" knowledge found in education and learning and "heart" wisdom discovered through prayer, ritual, and practice. It is indeed most fitting to say that faith formation is at the heart of what our living and being is all about; but without the hands that guide what we are continually becoming, the process is incomplete. Let us offer some helpful tools from which you can grow in faith and be reminded of God's transformational presence along life's journey. Let us know if you have requests, questions or ideas.

Lent – 2018 For the Life of the World Resources

Lent is an opportunity to intentionally practice the habits that we need all year to be disciples of Jesus. Quaker Douglas Steere says, “To pray is to pay attention to the deepest things we know.” Lent is our time to pay attention to God, our deepest longings and our brothers and sisters. The following options may invite and help us to pay attention.
