Adult Learning

Adult Learning at St. Anselm 

Goals of our Adult Formation activities are that:

  • We develop relationship with Christ through sacraments, prayer, works of justice, and spiritual direction.
  • We promote evangelization as a way of bringing the Good News to all persons.
  • We educate toward development of an informal moral conscience.

Content of our Adult Formation rotates in cycles on these topics:

  • Scripture and Tradition (creeds, doctrines of faith, Church history)
  • Mass, sacraments, prayer life
  • Call to holiness through the 10 Commandments, Beatitudes, Jesus' commandment to love one another as He has loved us
  • Teaching on the dignity of the human person, sin, grace, virtues
  • Social teaching
  • Prayer and spiritual traditions

Methods of our Adult Learning include:

  • Liturgy (weekly Eucharist, daily Mass and other communal prayer experiences)
  • Family and home centered activities (newspapers, seasonal booklets, home blessings, Catholic web sites)
  • RCIA, Small Groups (faith sharing, support and study groups), sacrament prep
  • Large Groups (speakers, supper/speaker events, book discussions, film festivals, travel, retreats, service involvement and reflection)
  • Individual Activities (print, A-V or web based materials for personal study), learning through technology (distance learning, Catholic websites), resources for studying the Catechism fo the Catholic Church
