Faith Formation Commission
      This group of adults is concerned with the promotion and enhancement among all ages of  parishioners to understand their faith and spiritually grow so they can live a healthy Christian life through the sacraments (including the Rite of Catholic Initiation of Adults [RCIA]) , Catholic traditions and missionary love of God and neighbor.

 

The group meets on the third Tuesday of the month at 6:00 pm.  You are welcome to come and share with us your concerns and ideas. Do you hear a call to help in these endeavors?

Please contact Tim Kelley at 828-777-1514 to find out more.


 
 
 

Mission

The mission of the Faith Formation Commission is to promote knowledge and understanding of our faith among all ages so we can live a Christian life, follow Catholic teachings and traditions, and grow spiritually, encouraging intergenerational and multicultural experiences in order to build a strong community in Christ.

 
       

 
SJA's Faith Formation Coordinator works in conjunction with a group of excellent, devoted volunteer catechists to provide Sunday morning religious education to the children of the parish and to prepare them for the Sacraments of Reconciliation, Eucharist, and Confirmation, and for life as adult Catholics.
   
  Please contact Maria Eva Tabora to find out more.    
       


Are you presently not Catholic, but wondering what we as Catholics believe?  Whether you are thinking about becoming Catholic or are just curious, we have something for you.  Please talk to Father Dean (English) or Teresa Barrera (Spanish) for more information.  We also have adult Bible study currently going on Wednesday evenings at 6:30 while the children are in faith formation.  Come join us!

In the event of winter weather, we will follow the schedule of Buncombe County Schools.  If they close or dismiss early on a Wednesday, there will be no Faith Formation classes that night.  If the bad weather starts after schools have let out, we will contact WLOS and there will be a message on the parish voice mail and Tim Kelley’s voice mail.

En el caso de que el clima de invierno, vamos a seguir el programa de Escuelas del Condado de Buncombe. Si cierran o despiden temprano el miércoles no habrá clases de formación de fe de esa noche. Si el mal tiempo comienza después de las escuelas han dejado fuera, nos pondremos en contacto WLOS y habrá un mensaje en el correo de voz de la parroquia y el correo de voz de Tim Kelley.
