The Mission of the Office of Adult Formation is to nurture spiritual growth and foster an attitude of ongoing conversion to Jesus within the adult members of St. John – Holy Angels Parish.  The Office supports and promotes “formation for transformation” as called for in the U.S. Bishops’ document Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us.

Formation as Catholic Christians is an ongoing, life-long process. To assist in that journey of faith, the Office of Adult Formation provides opportunities and resources for faith enrichment.

Individual Spiritual Direction
Perhaps you are experiencing a sense of hunger for more in your spiritual life.  Maybe your prayer life seems to be changing.  There might be a sense of being drawn to a new or different place in your relationship with God.  If you would like to meet with a spiritual companion on your journey, it could be that spiritual direction is for you.  Meeting monthly to explore, to savor, to honor your walk with God, you and the spiritual director will prayerfully listen, will notice together God’s whisperings, action, and Presence in your day-to-day life.

For more information, please call Mary Consiglio (302-453-9613) or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Mary is a member of our parish and has been a spiritual director for over twenty years.

Sharing Faith Groups

Are you feeling a little tug to deepen your relationship with God or have a desire to learn more about the Catholic faith? Small faith formation groups offer a way to spend time focusing on God’s action in your life in a prayerful and trusting atmosphere, sharing your faith walk with others. Recent topics included The Mass, The 7 Deadly Sins, and Your Life Is Not Your Own. Meetings are posted in the bulletin. You will be most welcome!

Lectio Divina

Lectio Divina is an ancient yet ever new practice of praying with the Scriptures. Using the four R's of Read, Reflect, Respond, Rest, we engage with the upcoming Sunday's Gospel and allow it to speak to our hearts. The final R, Rest leads us into twenty minutes of silent prayer. Lectio Divina, like many things in life that we just read about, until we have actually experienced them, we cannot fully appreciate them. 
All are welcome to our monthly meetings on the third Thursday of the month at 10:30 at the Parish Center. Check the Parish Bulletin for meeting information or contact either:

The Chosen Bible Study
The Chosen is a fresh take on the Gospels by viewing Jesus’ ministry through the disciples' point of view. How did Jesus impact their lives? What questions and doubts did they have? How are the disciples just like you? Each 2nd Monday of the month, the Chosen Bible Study group gathers at the Parish Center at 6 pm to share faith about two episodes. All are welcome. Please contact Chris Moriak This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you want more information,
