Adult Faith Formation

Enrich your faith life. Embrace the call to discipleship. 

“This course gave me an appreciation for the church we have today by reading the documents of the fathers of the church. I now understand how they influence us still.”

- Mary Ziolkowski, ANT ‘12

The Adult Faith Formation program at the Neuhoff School of Ministry provides courses, lectures, and workshops on various topics, ranging from philosophy and theology to Scripture, church history, canon law, saints, and more.
