The Ministry of A GiFT, Adults Growing in Faith Together, exists to foster the environment of faith formation for adult parishioners by promoting ministries and supporting life-changing quality events and programs that support personal growth, discipleship, and discerning new opportunities to fill the needs of all stages of adults in our community.
Short Summary of A GiFT
A GiFT, Adults Growing in Faith Together, celebrated its 5th year in May 2012.
Guided by USCCB’s Our Hearts Were Burning Within Us, the team continues to lead parish adult faith formation efforts and works with most adult faith formation groups.
The A GiFT Team’s primary function is Leadership of Implementation. Leadership of Implementation means this functional team will seek out the best resources offering adult faith formation opportunities to the parish through (1) existing programs, (2) new programs, and (3) programs offered by parishioners, other parishes, and other institutions in the metro area.
A GiFT team member individual skills include: planning, analysis, evaluation, coordination, and execution.
The A GiFT team meets on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of every month from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM in the Parish Center.
Please consider joining the team and helping other parishioners bring their adult education programs to successful fruition at Our Lady of the Lake.
