Adult Faith Formation Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer opportunities are available to assist as members of the RCIA team, or as RCIA sponsors.

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.

Discover the Holy Spirit who has been revealed to us by Jesus Christ and who leads us to our heavenly Father! This study meets on Monday evenings from 7 - 8 p.m. in-person and on Zoom. Click here to register.

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].

St. Catherine's Women’s Bible Study

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.

They are currently studying Jesus and the Dead Sea Scrolls:

The greatest archeological discovery of the 20th century gave the world the Dead Sea Scrolls. As the oldest sacred documents of Judaism, the scrolls have many surprising connections to early Christianity.

Holy Family women are invited to participate in a study by biblical scholar Dr. John Bergsma and Fr. Dave Pivonka, TOR. In this study, they discuss the history and mysteries of the scrolls, what they reveal about Jesus Christ, the sacraments, and the early Church, and why they matter to believers and non-believers today.

This is an eight-week study through Zoom; one hour a week. The study begins on Feb. 4 and ends on March 25. Click here to register
