The Adult Ministry of the Parish is composed of several groups, working together with the Director of Adult Faith Formation (Anita Daroczy) and the Director of Faith Formation (Colleen Gonzalez).
The groups take into consideration the spiritual, intellectual and psychological needs of adult parishioners through a variety of topics and activities that are presented throughout the year.

Spiritual Encounters is a faith program focusing on the spirituality of women. Program encounters are selected to deepen our awareness of God in everyday life. It is open to all women in the latter part of life.
Our Mission is to provide friendship, love and support to all women of St. Mary's Church and beyond. We offer our Christian Ministry to all backgrounds and faiths.

We provide ladies ages 21-121 the opportunity to grow their Christian faith in order to nurture their friends, family and children with confidence and Christian values. We bring Joy into our lives by supporting women and nourishing our souls. Our social activities are centered on serving others (like Community Sharing, Mission Program, etc.). We serve with prayer for our personal special intentions. Our guest speakers will be on Spirituality and Personal Growth, among other ideas. Child Care will be provided at all events.
