Family Faith in Action

Pope Francis has cited the need for Catholic families to place God and the Catholic faith at the center of their lives. The Family Fully Alive booklet is an excellent resource with monthly devotional messages, scripture readings, prayers, and activities designed to help families develop their “domestic church” and grow in holiness together.

Activated Disciple: 40-Day Spiritual Challenge

As Catholics, we practice our faith, and we study what it means to truly be a disciple of Jesus Christ. But we often find that we are not fully living out the bold, abundant, Christ-like life we are called to live. 

The Activated Disciple 40-Day Challenge is a clear, step-by-step transformation program that helps you put what you know into action to become the activated disciple you are called to be. More Information on this Ascension Press program can be found here.

This challenge can be completed on your own or as a group, virtually or in-person! The group challenges begin on September 30. Meeting times are Wednesday 6:30 - 8:00 pm, Thursday 9:00 - 10:30 am and Fridays Noon-1:00pm (Virtual). To register for either and to learn more information, click here

Virtual Small Group Bible Study

Virtually gather your friends for a 10-week video study program and book! Anchored in the life of Christ as presented in the Gospels, this study explores the entirety of Jesus’ life - who he is, what he is really like, what he taught, what he did for our salvation, and what all of this means for us as Catholics today. The suggested group size is 4-6 people who have access to a computer for virtual discussions.

ChristLife Series: Discovering, Following, Sharing

The ChristLife Series is a three-step evangelization process that is changing lives and transforming parishes. The series consists of three essential elements: discover, follow, and share. The series is divided into three seven-week courses that build upon each other to introduce people to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and His transforming love.

Holy Family Men of Faith

Men come together to study the richness of the Catholic faith and learn how to apply it to their daily lives in order to become better fathers, husbands, brothers, associates, and Christian men.

The men gather at 6 a.m. on Tuesdays in room 215, for a video presentation and discussion. Sessions end by 7:30 a.m. The Men of Faith studies usually run in the fall and the spring, from September through December and again from January through April. Watch the bulletin for information on summer sessions. Click here to register or, for more information, contact Glenn Duncan @ 816-835-1292 or [email protected].


The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is a program of instruction, prayer and ritual celebrations for persons interested in the Catholic Church. The program is designed primarily for unbaptized persons and baptized non-Catholics; however, adult Catholics who have not yet received first Eucharist or confirmation are also welcome.

The Women’s Bible Study is open to any women within our community. The group meets on Sundays at 9:40 a.m. in room 215 from September through May.
