Adult Faith Formation

"Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations..." - Matthew 28:19

Adult Faith Formation at Blessed Sacrament Parish strives to inform, develop and guide adult activities by providing a variety of programs to meet the diverse needs of all. All involved are encouraged to support each element through welcome, word, wisdom, worship, witness and welfare.

RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults)

Classes begin each year in September. In September and October, RCIA sessions are held from 6:30pm to 7:30pm on Tuesday evenings. Beginning November 5, RCIA starts with 9:30am Mass, features a Breaking Open The Word segment after dismissal from Mass and concludes with a catechetical session ending at 11:45am. So, beginning November 5, there is no further Tuesday evening commitment. There is no charge for participating in our RCIA program. Call the department for additional information or to sign up for RCIA. All are welcome.

RCIA Schedule 2017-2018

Adult Educational/Faith Building Opportunities

Our small group Lenten bible study groups are formed every winter.  If you have participated in the past and want to be in the same group, please let your group leader know.  If you have not participated before and are interested in bible study during lent, watch for sign-up opportunities in the Gathering Space.  If you have any questions, call Cathy at 266-6791.

Bible studies and other educational programs are constantly happening at Blessed Sacrament. During Lent we also have a full schedule of Lenten Bible Studies. Our studies happen in both daytime and evening hours. Take a look and see if one of these programs might be what you're looking for.

Lenten Bible Study Groups


Metanoia is a word which means "a change of heart." It may also be viewed as coming to see things in a different light. Why? Maybe our faith has grown stale. Perhaps we do not practice our faith much, if at all. Maybe we are looking for a faith life. Then again, maybe we are just searching for an elusive "something" that we can't put into words. If any of these apply to your life, the Metanoia experience may be for you.

Work of Our Hands Ministry

The Work of Our Hands Ministry is dedicated to sharing fellowship, prayer and creative ideas with one another and our parish family. Some members knit or crochet, while others work on beading projects and other handcrafted items. The most important part of this ministry is showing others they have the well-wishes and prayers of the ministry whenever they are needed. Sessions are held periodically as a way to share inspiration and ideas. Bring your handcrafting work with you to work on and pray over.

We meet on the 3rd Monday of each month at 1:00 pm in the Father Finnell room, but you don't have to attend to be a part of this loving ministry. Projects finished at home can be dropped at the Religious Education Office any time. There is a book in the office to log your contributions. If you would like more information about this ministry, call Nancy Carlson at 264-3933. We look forward to seeing you and the Work of Your Hands.


Join us for adoration of the Blessed Sacrament on Tuesday evenings at 7:30pm. All are welcome to spend some quiet time before our Lord in His Eucharistic Presence. Come for the whole hour or come for only a part of it -- your spirit will thank you for whatever your schedule allows. Please contact Slawek and Sara Lopko at 321-8298 or with any questions.
