Adult Faith Formation

Home / Faith Formation / Adult Faith Formation

There is no such thing as graduation at Confirmation! All adults ages 18+ are invited to join us for adult faith formation classes. Adult formation opportunities are offered throughout the year and mainly meet during the fall, spring and summer semesters. Please refer to the parish bulletin and the Diocesan Adult Faith Formation flyer for details on upcoming classes.

Becoming Catholic – RCIA

RCIA is a journey of faith process designed to serve unbaptized adults and adults baptized in another Christian faith tradition. During initial sessions of RCIA, individuals who are inquiring about the Catholic faith are able to get answers to their questions about Catholicism. Sessions that follow are dedicated to preparing those who decide to become Catholic. After their time of preparation, those who are to be Baptized, or to come into full communion with the Catholic Church, celebrate the Initiation sacraments (Baptism, Confirmation, and Communion) at the Easter Vigil.

Thursdays, 7:00 PM, September-Easter Season.

VIRTUS, led by The National Catholic Risk Retention Group, Inc., aims to eliminate abuse of children in our Catholic communities by providing training on the warning signs and proper procedures when faced with such injustices. To be an employee or volunteer in any environment that involves children in our Catholic communities across West Tennessee, one must attend the VIRTUS training. In addition to the formal training sessions, VIRTUS creates articles to supplement one’s training.

Any adult that volunteers or works with children at Holy Spirit must complete this training and have a background check.
