YAG Faith Formation

Welcome to Young Adults Faith Formation

Thank you for your interest in the Young Adults Faith Formation. We are a strong group of Catholic young adults who want to continuosly grow in our faith. In fact, that's why we have called this "Boots." Traditionally, Christ's faithful here on earth have been called the "church militant" -  we are Christ's "boots on the ground." There is a continuous battle between good and evil happening all around us, and we need to be doing our part. Its time, as the Church's Young Adults, to get our boots dirty and to get into the fight. That starts with knowing our faith so that we can confidently yet charitibly spread the fullness of the gosepl. 

Therefore, we are beginning our study of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. There will be weekly reading assignments posted to this page and meetings will be held every Wednesday at 6:30pm-8:00p. Please be sure to come with the readings done.
