Statement of Purpose

Adult Faith Formation Committee To provide opportunities for the whole faith community to grow in relationship with God toward a mature faith, to recognize and respond to our baptismal call to live out our faith as disciples of Christ by giving back and building up the Kingdom of God.

The following are opportunities offered at our parish to enrich our faith. Please check the parish bulletin and adult faith formation bulletin board for more information.

Adult Confirmation

The Adult Confirmation process is designed specifically for practicing Catholics who have not received the sacrament of Confirmation.  Any adult over age 18 interested in attending this class and receiving the sacrament of Confirmation can register by calling the Parish Office at 925-830-0600.

Bible Study, Men’s Saturday Morning

The Saturday Men’s Bible Group meets for one hour every Saturday morning to read, discuss and pray the bible, fellowship and partake in action projects.  The group follows “God’s Word Today” which leads us through alternating months on Books of the Old Testament, Books of the New Testament, and spiritual subjects. The group is also committed to action-supporting ministries in which the members are involved within the parish and in outreach to the greater community with activities, such as, adopting needy families. All men of the parish are welcome.

Bible Study, Women’s Wednesday Morning

Each semester the Women’s Bible Study chooses to follow either the current Parish Bible Study or a new series which involves a section of scripture and a study guide with questions.  Sessions are about 90 minutes on Wednesday mornings from 9:45-11:45 AM.

Women’s Retreat/Women of St. Joan

The group organizes two annual parish-wide events for women: a full-day retreat in the spring and a half-day retreat that coincides with the Saturday Mass honoring the Blessed Virgin Mary in May.  These events are designed to enrich the spiritual lives of women through presentations, discussions, music, and prayer while building community at St. Joan of Arc.  Volunteer opportunities range from chairing a committee, speaking or singing at events, tracking reservations, baking items to be offered for snacks or meals, or being a worker bee for a variety of jobs.
