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.

Scripture Groups

Scripture groups meet for the purpose of sharing and interpreting Scripture.  Exact meeting dates and locations are listed in the Sunday bulletin.   Wednesday Scripture Study meets at 10 AM on the 3rd Wednesday, October to May.  This group is under the direction of Father Michael Cook.   Saturday Morning Men’s Scripture Sharing meets at 7:30 AM on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays, September to May.

Group Spiritual Direction

Are you feeling a little tug to deepen your relationship with God?  Group spiritual direction offers a way to spend time each month focusing on God’s action in your life in a prayerful and trusting atmosphere, sharing your faith walk with others.  We meet on the first Monday of the month (September on the second Monday due to the Holiday) through June at the Parish Center from 7:00-8:30.  Meetings are posted in the bulletin.  You will be most welcome!

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 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  Mary is a member of our parish and has been a spiritual director for over twenty years.  


Catholic Update, a monthly publication from St. Anthony Messenger Press, is available at the exits of St. John’s and Holy Angels Churches.  Each free, well-written and easy to read issue offers a different subject about our faith.
