Adult Faith Formation
Throughout the year Holy Cross offers a variety of opportunities for Catholic adults to enrich their life-long faith journey through events such as parish presentations focused on Catholic teachings, theology classes, scripture studies, prayer groups, parish missions, retreats, marriage enrichment, and much more.
Volunteer opportunities are available to facilitate and provide hospitality for adult faith formation offerings. Please contact the Pastoral Associate, Bridgette Cosentino, for more information.
A Biblical Walk Through the Mass
As Catholics, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the center of our Faith. We celebrate it every day. We know all the responses. We know all the gestures. But do we know what it all means? Discover how the Mass is nothing short of amazing. Through it, we encounter God in the most intimate way possible as we hear Him speak to us in the Liturgy of the Word and as we receive Him Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity in the Holy Eucharist.The words, the gestures, and the rituals of the Mass are rich in meaning. Everything we say and do in the Liturgy is steeped in biblical language. A Biblical Walk Through the Mass explores the extraordinary biblical roots of the Liturgy and reveals what it all means and why it all matters. This fascinating tour of the Mass will renew your faith and deepen your love for and devotion to the Holy Eucharist.
