Upcoming 2023-2024 Adult Faith Formation Events

Sacraments: History, Theology and Practice – October 2023 – May 2024

Back by popular demand, Dr. Mary Dumm will teach an eight week class on the sacraments of the Catholic Church! We celebrate the Sacraments every week. We celebrate them at special, God-arranged times in our lives. But, what do they mean? Where do we find them in the Scriptures? How can we more deeply enter into these sacred mysteries?

Please register by contacting the Parish Office or at stblase.org.

Part One (John 1-10) covers the magnificent prologue of John’s Gospel and a significant portion of Jesus’ ministry,” (Liturgical Press). “Part Two (John 11-21) begins with the final ‘sign’ of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead and takes readers to the hour of Jesus’ glorification in his passion, death, and resurrection,” (Liturgical Press).

Part One: October 9, 16, 23, 30, November 6, 13, 2023

Adult Faith Formation: What is a Synod? What is the Synod on Synodality 2021-2024 and Why is it important to us? – October 30, 2023

Fr. Randy will talk about the Synod currently taking place and its importance to us as we live out our faith. This is a Global movement and is in its final stage; the Continental Stage: Communion, Participation, and Mission.

The following is taken from the USCCB website:

“Pope Francis invites the entire Church to reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life and mission: ‘It is precisely this path of synodality which God expects of the Church of the third millennium.’ This journey, which follows in the wake of the Church’s ‘renewal’ proposed by the Second Vatican Council, is both a gift and a task: by journeying together and reflecting together on the journey that has been made, the Church will be able to learn through Her experience which processes can help Her to live communion, to achieve participation, to open Herself to mission.’”

Catechist Formation Topics


The response to the call to be a catechist includes a willingness to give time and talent not only to catechizing others, but also to one’s own continued growth in faith, understanding, and skills. Catechist formation topics provide the catechist with the basic foundation for ministry through the study of topics in the areas of Scripture, theology, sacraments, and learning methodology. Catechist certification topics are offered at St. Blase at various times. These opportunities for formation and education are not just limited to catechists; all adults are welcome! More information about upcoming workshops can be found on the Becoming A Certified Catechist Page.

Women’s Friendship Breakfast

These events provide adults with a morning of fellowship, song and prayer featuring a special guest speaker who addresses issues faced by adult Christian men and women. Each event includes a catered breakfast.
