Adult Faith Formation

At the Church of the Blessed Sacrament, Adult Catchesis is one of our top priorities. We offer many programs that we hope will spread the spirit of the New Evangelization. These programs include:

Parish Missions-An annual opportunity to hear a guest speaker give a presentation about a particular subject-matter of the church. Think of it as a 3-night or 1-night retreat that the parish offers to you as a gift.

Parish Book Programs-  The mission of the PBP is to encourage Catholics at Blessed Sacrament Parish to make spiritual reading a part of their lives.

The Parish Book Program is designed to engage disengaged Catholics and help committed Catholics explore the genius of Catholicism. By distributing books two times a year (Christmas and Easter) we believe we will help people discover the beauty, genius, and modern relevance of Catholicism – and together we will – raise morale among Catholics; engage disengaged Catholics; increase engagement among practicing Catholics; bring new life to parish communities; inspire a new generation of vocations; and inspire Catholics to feel good about being Catholic. (an initiative of the Dynamic Catholic Institute). Following the distribution of books, study groups are formed to discuss the book.

How can you be a part of this program? Be a facilitator. Join a book club. Help distribute books at Mass (Christmas and Easter)


Lenten Journey Series- hosted by our Respect Life committee, these Tuesday night sessions during Lent offer one a chance to gather and reflect with other parishioners in preparation for the Easter season. The goal is to present hot topics that are diverse and important to us as Catholic lay witnesses. The sessions are given by experts in the particular subject-matter field. Everyone is encouraged to attend and participate in the discussion and Q&A afterwards.

Lighthouse Catholic Media CD's- Lighthouse Catholic media stands are located at each of the entrances to church.  The CDs feature a variety of talks on topics and issues by leading Catholic theologians. The CDs, books and brochures are a way to rekindle the faith and an effective means of evangelization. They are available for a recommended $3 per CD donation.

Parish Library- Our Lady of Fatima Parish Library offers G-rated videos and DVDs, audiotapes, and religious non-fiction and fiction books for adults. Rental fees are $0.50 per week for videos, DVDs and audiotapes, and $0.25 per week for books. Rental fees and donations are used to purchase new items.

The library committee evaluates, purchases, and distributes inventory. Committee members take turns staffing the library and hold meetings during the year to discuss library operations and acquisitions. The library, located at the south (front) church entrance, is open before and after 5:15pm Saturday Mass and before and after Sunday Masses, except the 6:30am Mass.

Apologetics Academy

Apologetics Academy with Bo Bonner: the Christian life is a journey, not only in time but interiorly as well. While the Church has spiritual milk for us at the beginning of our walk, it also provides the “meat” of the Faith to chew on as well. If you are ready to “taste and see that the Lord is good” in a more substantial way, join us for the Apologetics Academy, where we walk deeper into the truths of our Faith.
